9000 series bulbs are rear loaded bulbs, meaning you need to have access to the back of the light fixture to remove the retaining ring, harness plug and bulb. On some vehicles you may need to remove the air filter assembly or battery to gain access, or you can remove the headlight assembly to gain access to the bulb - which route you go depends on how many things are in the way and if it would be faster to take out the assembly. Chevy used several different types of fasteners - Phillips, Torx or Allen screws. You should not need to mess with the adjustment screws since they are a part of the assembly. Determine which fasteners were used on your vehicle and remove just the mounting screws. Try to unplug the headlight before removing the assembly - if you are unable to then remove mounting screws and pull out the assembly far enough to unplug. Make sure you wipe off the glass part of the new bulb with a clean rag and rubbing alcohol to remove any body oils or dirt which will cause the bulb to burn out. Pay attention to the location of the flat part of the bulb to install new bulb correctly. There is a plastic retaining ring that holds the bulb in place in the assembly. Turning this ring 1/8 turn clockwise will release it from the assembly so you can remove the old bulb. Hope this helps and please rate my solution - and thanks for using Fixya!!

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

No headlights only high beams


Both the low beam bulbs must be defective.
People at Jiffylube change headlight bulbs while you wait, if you are not up to the task.

How do i replace a low beam head light on a 94' camry ?


Things You'll Need:
  • #H11-55W and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2007 and later models)
  • #9006 and #9005 replacement bulbs (low- and high-beam bulbs for 2002-2006 models).
STEPS TO REPLACE HEAD LIGHT: Shut off the Camry's engine and set the parking brake for added safety. Also, make sure its headlights are switched off. Open the hood using the primary and auxiliary hood release latches. Locate the back of the headlight assembly and determine whether the low- or high-beam bulb needs to be replaced. Turn the headlight bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from shattering or cracking.

To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.

No low beam lights


Did you check your fuses by any chance? otherwise check all your connection from the headlights back. Check your relays also.
