Replace headlamp 1998 V70


If you're talking about just the bulb, it's very easy and will require no tools. If you're talking about the whole headlight assembly, that's pretty easy, and I believe all that is required is a 10mm socket, and maybe an extension. If I remember correctly there's 3 bolts that hold it in place. Be careful when removing the assembly as the side marker assembly tabs into the headlight assembly, and it's pretty common to break 15 year old brittle plastic tabs. Install the new assembly and adjust it as best you can until you can get it aligned professionally.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

How do I replace a headlamp assy.


There should be one screw that hold the top of the headlamp assembly to the upper radiator support. It is either a 9/32" or an 8mm. Once that screw is removed pull out on the headlamp assemble. It should pop out. Sometimes you will need a large screwdriver to pop the metal mounting balls out of the sockets. You can just barely see the inside one if you look on the back of the headlamp assembly. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Replace rt side (psg) front headlaight assembly, for a 97 cadilac deville.


pull upward on black cover above headlamp assy. (marked pull here for headlamp service) you will then see on the front side a large bolt above the lamp assembly that holds it to the front of the car. it is a 10MM socket you will then need to remove a similar bolt on the top and bottom on the center front of the car where the assembly bolts up to the sheet metal. on the corner near the cornering lamp is a star shaped head bolt. (looks like star of david) you will need another small metric socket to remove this. this will free up the cornering lamp from the headlamp assembly. gently pull forward and away from headlamp assembly. remove both light pig tails by gently twisting on pigtails. you will then see 2 nuts which are also 10mm remove these and gently pull forward on entire headlamp assembly. you will need needle nose pliers to compress the head of plastic retaining tabs on headlight and signal light pig tails where they are held into the headlamp assembly. gently twist hi-low beam sockets free of the headlamp assembly then do like wise with the signal lamps. to install reverse procedure as above. note: the side with the cornering lamp has a tab that must fit back into tab-hole in front sheet metal of the front fender.

Low beam out


I am assuming you are talking about a headlight bulb yes?

$401 for replacement?

Go and tell your dealership to take a running jump.

The only tool you will need is a flat head screwdriver.

Step 1
Switch the headlamps off and open the hood using the primary and auxiliary release latches.
Step 2
Pry loose the eight radiator fastener plugs and pull them out of their holes. Place the plugs in a small bag for safekeeping during the repair.
Step 3
Lift the radiator cover away from the vehicle. Then, pull either the top left or top right corner of the grille away from the vehicle to create enough room to remove the headlamp assembly.
Step 4
Locate the horizontal headlamp assembly pin. Pull the end of the pin up and then toward the center of the vehicle to remove it.
Step 5
Find the vertical headlamp assembly pin. Turn its end away from you until it clicks and then pull it upward.
Step 6
Remove the headlamp assembly, detach its electrical connector and remove the rubber bulb cap from the broken bulb’s socket. Then, twist the bulb counterclockwise to remove it from the socket.
Step 7
Detach the electrical connector from the old bulb and attach it to the new one. Then, screw the bulb back into its socket.
Step 8
Repeat Steps 4 through 6 in reverse and then test the new bulb to make sure it works. If it lights up, reposition the grille and replace the radiator cover along with its plugs before closing the hood.
