Hi

the bulb should have a metal clasp over the back of it, you squeeze this together then you will feel it click, then you open it like a door, one side is hinged so it only opens one way. the metal clasp is often very thing metal wire shaped like a small round cage over the bulb, they have 2 loops on the end of each none hinged side, these loops slot into 2 small hooks that remain on the back of the headlamp.

Hope that helps, do you need more info?
Regards

Dan

Ashtray bulb


Pull the ashtray out. Then remove ashtray holder-probably 2 Phillips head screws. Light socket may be attached to holder, or may be accessed with holder out of the way. I think those bulbs would be push-in type-bulb is probably 194 or 168 designation.

Headlight bulb replacement on renault modus


Replacing a dipped head light bulb on a Renault Modus.

Having recently purchased a 2008 Modus with the passenger side dipped beam head light bulb not working. Concerned that posts on this matter talked about removing several body parts or a costly visit to the Renault dealer.

It's a simple 10 minute job. It is a little tricky with limited access and restricted view. However - its as simlpe as - remove circular cover from rear of bulb holder - remove the clip on connecter and push to side. You need to pull the wire clip above the bulb slightly to the side from its holding and it flips down and out of the way Be careful not to detach the clip from its holding points below the bulb - it's extra hassle to put back in.
You can now remove the old bulb - replace with the new bulb. Make sure its sitting correctly in housing. Re attach the clip to its holding point above the bulb. Replace the connector.Replace the circular cover to the rear of the bulb holder.

It takes 10 minutes - cost me under five pounds for the replacement bulb. Hope this helps.

How to replace the bulbs from daytime running light from my buick enclave 2010


Just did it - was easy!

1. Turn the tire fully inward on the side with the bulb burned out
2. Remove the 5 phillips head screws securing the tire shroud to the fender
3. Flex the tire shroud away from the fender and slip your hand in; turn the bulb holder for the daytime running light 1/3 counter clockwise and remove it from the housing
4. Pull the 3157 bulb straight out and replace it with a new one (push straight in to put the new bulb into the holder)
5. Replace the bulb holder into the housing by inserting it and turning 1/3 clockwise. IMPORTANT NOTE: one tab on the holder is larger than the others - this tab faces forward to the front of the car (this way the filament will be parallel to the front of the car when secured so the light shines correctly and fully)
6. Replace the 5 screws to secure the shroud to the fender.

That's it!!

My low beams keep shutting on and off but high beams are fine


this could be solved by taking the bulb out of its holder and cleaning the contact of the bulb and holder.
turn the ignition on after this with the bulbs in the holder and plugged in but not in the headlight kitself.Turn the lights on and see if the work if still the same try moving the bulb while on in its older and see if its just loose. if so holding it one way it will work. wedge something something to hold it in place or buy a used bulb holder.
Check the fuses at the same time and the wire plug that powers the bulb. check and clean the contacts of these also
Let me know how it goes and ill help again if it persists.

Can you give me the steps to change the headlight bulb

You might have to jiggle the headlight while doing this, dust and rock particles get wedged in the tracks making it hard to slip out.

Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4


Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.
