You must be care full that u dont touch the bulb itself the oils from your fingers will burn it out as soon as it gets hot. There should be a socket type system where your light goes it's a twist and turn type manover and should pop out .

Replace headlights on pontaic grand am

open the hood ,,look where the back of the head light is. there are wires .there is a light socket .it should have three wires .turn the light socket either to the right or left genly pull the socket out of the light assembly ,un plug the wires from the bulb ,? be care full when you take the new light bulb out of the wrapper .,do not touch the clear part of the bulb ,you can use a paper towel or tissue to hold it until you are ready to place it in the light assembly .if you do end up touching the bulb clean it with rubbing alchol ,,,the reason not to touch the bulb with youre fingers is that the oil from youre skin will not get on the bulb..and that bulb will lats about a week and burn out .because th oil from youre fingers traps the heat in and the light heats up to much .if you need the whole light changed there screws holding the light on .

1999 pontiac grand am headlight glass is foggy-how do I clean it?

You can use a product called goof off or a bug abd tar remover to get the area clean. To change your light bulb you can open your hood and between the radiator and the front end assembly see the back of the light socket. Turn it to the right and it should release. Make sure when you replace the new bulb not to touch the bulb in anyway with grease from your hand or dirt this will case the halogen bulb to burn out. So once you have replaced this just repeat the steps to reinstall.

if you're dealing with a v6 ram air you first have to take off the black plastic clips that hold down the hard plastic housing in order to access the headlight. once thats removed you have to TWO clamps u have to pull up on EACH headlight in order to take off the headlight, from there u should be able to access your headlight and bulb.
