How to change headlight assembly


You can't get at them from the engine bay. You've got to remove the plastic grill on the front of the car, to get at other screws, and take a few screws out that hold the entire headlight assembly in. Do not unscrew any of the screws above or below the lights. These are for adjusting the angle of the headlights. You'll have to readjust them if you do. Not a big deal, just unnecessary if you don't touch them.

There should be 2 screws on either side of the headlight assembly. Spray some penetrating fluid on them. I broke one with very little pressure because I didn't. Sheared the head right off the shaft.

Once you get the headlight assembly out the bulbs come out with a quarter turn of the socket. Remember not to touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil will create hot spots and it could crack the bulb. If you do then clean it with a high percentage alcohol before putting it in.

I'm having a problem removing the headlight assembly from my 2004 chrysler crossfire, i've removed the 2 screws from the top and removed 1 from below through the wheel well, are there two screws...


Last I checked Chrysler had changed it's headlight mounting from external screws to just the two adjusting screws. Looking down from the top, you should be able to see two Torx head screws that are used to adjust the headlight assembly. The remove teh head light assembly you remove those and the assembly should come right out. Both of these screws or adjusters will be 6 to 8 inches long. I hope your not removing this to change the headlight it self. Chrysler has been using the insert bulbs for several generations and to replace the bulb you only have to unlock the collar on the back of the light assembly and pull and then replace the bulb.

Your headlight switch needs to be replaced. Here's the section from the maintenance manual.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column cover and remove the instrument panel bezel. Two screws are hidden behind the steering column cover.
  3. Remove the screws from the headlight switch bezel, pull the assembly out and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the nut retaining the bezel to the bracket. Depress the spring button on the right side of the switch and remove the headlight switch knob and stem.
  5. Remove the spanner nut and remove the switch.
  6. The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

I am trying to change a headlight. I can't can not


The headlight assembly (1993 Grand Caravan) is held in place with three plastic "wing nuts" that rotate on the ball-end (front end) of the adjusting screws. One "adjusting screw" (the one on the bottom, inboard side) is not for adjusting, just for mounting. The other two adjusting screws take a torx T15 in the front end of the screw.
Removing the headlight assembly is somewhat of a trick - it seems like it takes a special tool to reach the "wing nut" and turm it 1/4 turn (90 degrees) CLOCKWISE (so the "wings" are vertical). When all three of these mounting "wing nuts" have the wings vertical, the headlight assembly just pulls forward and off these mounting nuts. Place the new assembly back over the "nuts", turn the 3 "wing nuts" another quarter turn, and the new unit is mounted. Probably not even a need to re-adjust the headlights, but you should check.
The PROBLEM, is that it appears to take a special tool to reach and turn these wing nuts without breaking them (yes, the old ones get brittle). I tried a socket (did not work), and then long needle-nose pliers (broke one wing nut), then a 1/2" open-end wrench (which at least worked). However, pushing the new assembly back over the wing nuts, I broke another wing nut. So, I broke 2 of the 6, and one was broken when I started.
Now I need to find replacements for these "wing nuts" ... any ideas where to get them?
Of course I can use some washers, some nuts to fit the fine-threaded adjustment screw, and some sort of bushing (maybe cut a short piece of rubber tubing to fit over the adjustment screw). Place double nuts (second nut to lock the first in place) and a washer, then the bushing onto the adjusting screw, then the headlamp assembly onto the bushing, then add another washer, and two more nuts (not too tight) to lock it onto the adjusting screw (which must still be free to rotate). Repeat for each of the 6 mounting points. I have not tried this yet, but ... it should work.

Fabricate a tool to turn the "wing nuts" using a piece of 3/8 inch ID tubing which you file or cut 1/8 inch by 1/8 inch notches on each side of a diameter line.

I replaced the right low beam headlight according to the manual on a 2000 toyota corolla however when I removed the fuse box to get access to the headlight both bolts broke. The screws are under the metal...


I am assuming you want those broken screws replaced with working ones.
The solution is lots of work. You will have to dissassemble everything until you have really good access. At that point it depends on how it was held on and where the screws broke. Is part of the threaded screw still stuck in something? If so and these are small screws then it will be fairly difficult even for a skilled mechanic with hard lefthand drills and other fancy tools.
If a nut just broke off a bolt then just replace with another nut and bolt you purchase at your local hardware store. Id suggest stainless with anti-sieze in case you or someone else has to do the job again.
I am not really familiar with the way the corolla is made but I have repaired many broken screws, broken off in blind holes.

2004 Audi A4 headlight replacement


you have to loosen the whole headlight assembly to open the covers behind the lights to actually get to the bulbs. 4 screws, 2 are on the top of the assembly(phillips screws) the other two are hex and attach the bottom of the assembly to the car. somewhat difficult to see but look behind the assembly and down into the compartment and loosen the screws(they don't fully come out) just enough to pull the assembly out. open the black cover behind he low bean and there is the bulb

What do I have to do to change my headlight lamps in my 2003 dodge neon? I tried unscrewing the bolts on the bar under the hood but I didn't have any luck. Am I supposed to get in there some complicated...


I was literally looking up this same thing in the manual!
Do you have the manual?
There are drawings. Yes you have to:
remove 3 upper fascia (what is that??) screws
remove 2 screws from the headlight assembly
remove the assembly from the vehicle
remove a retaining ring and replace the bulb
disconnect the electrical connector
remove the retaining ring and replace the bulb

btw it says do not touch the headlight bulb with your fingers, oil contamination will SEVERELY shorten bulb life.

easy huh?
