I think if you check your owners manual you will see that bulb replacement is done from the rear of the light assembly. You pull the assembly out in the rear and in the front you can generally get at the back of the assembly once you have opened the hood. You can get a replacement owners manual, and a service manual for just a few bucks on ebay, they come in very handy over time.

How do you change headlamp/bulb


Hello there, hope these guidelines are of help.
  • Open the hood and and take out the eight fastener plugs that connect the radiator cover to the front of the vehicle. Grasp the plugs from underneath, and squeeze them as you push them up and out of the hole. You do not need to remove the cover, but you need to be able to pull it away from the vehicle slightly to be able to remove the headlight.
  • Grasp the radiator cover close to the lens of the headlight you need to replace, and gently pull it up and toward you to access the headlight screws.
  • Remove the three headlight screws using a socket wrench. There are two screws directly below the lens, and one screw on the side of the lens closest to the outer edge of the vehicle.
  • Pull the edge of the radiator cover away from the vehicle, and lift the headlight assembly up and out of its frame.
  • Press the clip on the electrical connector to release it, and pull the connector out of the bulb retainer. Turn the bulb retainer counterclockwise 1/4 turn and pull it out of the assembly.
  • Pull the bulb out of the socket and insert the new bulb. Do not touch the bulb's glass with your fingers. Use a clean, lint-free cloth to handle the bulb if necessary.
  • Insert the bulb and retainer into the assembly, and turn it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it. Plug the electrical connector into the bulb retainer.
  • Place the headlight back into its frame and replace the screws. Put the radiator cover back into place and insert the eight fastener plugs.
Best regards...

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

How do i remove a 1990 lincoln continental headlight? I need to replace the headlight assemble and i am not sure how to best remove it


OK, do you just need the bulb? Or the whole plastic "clear" lens part that covers the bulb?

If you just need the halogen bulb, it comes out the back of the lens under the hood.

any more details, or how to replace the whole "plastic" part, I would visit my local library.

I don't know how to take off the head light lens cover on my nissan maxiuma


Probably not a lens cover at all. It's just a 1 piece plastic headlight. It you are wanting to replace a bulb , they go in from the back . Open the hood and you should be able to see where the wires to the bulb go in the back of the headlight.

How do I change the rear break light?

Replacing a dead bulb on your car is almost as easy as replacing a light bulb at home. Perform this simple maintenance and avoid the hassle of receiving a citation for a missing brake lightmag-glass_10x10.gif.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Automotive Light Bulbs
  • Red Tape
  • Cleaning Cloths
  • Rags
  • Screwdriver Sets
  1. Step 1 Determine how the bulb is accessed: On some models the lens (the red or white plastic part over the light) must be unscrewed from the outside, and on others the bulb is accessible only from inside the trunk. If there are no screws on the lens, you can assume that the bulb must be replaced from inside. Usually there will be a plastic cover that must be removed in order to access the bulb. There may be tabs, screws or small knobs that hold this plastic cover in place.
  2. Step 2replacelight_2s.jpg Unscrew the lens on the outside, or take off the plastic cover from inside the trunk, to reveal the bulb.
  3. Step 3replacelight_3s.jpg Unscrew the bulb. You'll have to push in and turn at the same time.
  4. Step 4 Take the bulb with you to the auto supply store to help you find an exact duplicate.
  5. Step 5replacelight_5s.jpg Clean the connection with a wire brush and/or wipe it clean with a rag if there's any corrosion.
  6. Step 6replacelight_6s.jpg Screw the new bulb into the empty socket. Again, you'll have to push in and turn simultaneously. Line up the tiny raised bumps on the base of the bulb in order to screw it in.
  7. Step 7 Replace the lens or the plastic cover.
