NO TOOLS REQUIRED. This can be done by touch on either the passenger or drivers's side. The bulb resides in a tube with a screw on end cap. Remove the end cap by screwing counter-clockwise. Reach in and you will feel 2 electrical leads. Pull both out. They will naturally stay one on top of the other, so no worries about them swapping places. Here is the tricky part. There is a wire that is holding the bulb in place. It looks complicated, but is made by design to be EASY to deal with. With your thumb, press the wire retainer in and a bit down. It will pop loose. Remove the bulb holding it by one of the electrical leads. Remove it carefully AND TAKE NOTE OF ITS' EXACT ORIENTATION SO YOU CAN PUT THE NEW BULB IN THE SAME WAY. Get the new bulb and remove from its' protective cover, holding it by its' electrical lead. Do not touch the bulb. The oils from your hand can reduce bulb life. As mentioned above, hold the bulb in the same orientation as the bulb you removed. The wire clip is as easy to replace as it was to remove. Push it forward and up. Again, it will snap into place. Replace the 2 electrical leads, and replace the screw on end cap. Test the headlight. BE CONFIDENT. THIS IS REALLY JUST AS EASY AS I HAVE DESCRIBED.

Unplug the connector running to the back of the headlamp bulb. Remove the rubber ring that is on the back of the headlamp. It just pulls off. After the rubber is removed, you will see the clip to release the bulb.

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

How How do i change the headlight bulb on the drivers side of my 2007 Hyundai Entourage?


You have to take the black plastic top off under the hood on the front.....than you take the whole headlight out, I believe it's only two bolts...there is opening for each light and they are pretty simple to change.

How do I change the Driver's side Front Headlight on the 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager?


  1. Unscrew the three screws that secure the headlight assembly to your Dodge Caravan. Put the screws in your pocket or another safe place, so you won't lose them before reinstalling the headlight assembly.
  2. Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the vehicle. Turn the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise to unlock the electrical connector. Remove the electrical connector from the bulb assembly by pulling it straight out.
  3. Replace the old bulb with a new halogen headlight bulb. Connect the electrical connector and turn the bulb retaining ring clockwise to lock the bulb into place.
  4. Reinstall the headlight assembly and secure the screws tightly before closing the hood. Turn on your Dodge Caravan, flip on the headlights and verify they're working properly.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!
