If you go to the local parts store like advanced auto they can tell you which bulb you need. They usually install from the rear and do not require special tools. Lee

How to change head light lamp on a Saturn S-Series SC2

Purchase the replacement light you need from an auto parts store. Give them the year and particular Saturn S Series model number to acquire the right part. Also indicate whether you need the high or low beam light bulb, as some S Series models require separate bulbs.
  • Turn off the engine. Pop the hood and secure it open. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery by grasping the cable and pulling it straight off of the positive and negative battery terminals.

  • Position yourself in front of the headlight you wish to repair. Look behind the headlight assembly to find the wiring harness for the headlight assembly. Lift the locking tab, grab the wiring harness and pull the wiring directly away from the assembly.

  • Grab the old headlight bulb, twist it counterclockwise and pull it out of the headlight assembly. Replace it with a new bulb and secure it by turning it clockwise.

  • Reconnect the wiring harness to the headlight assembly and reconnect the battery cables. Test the lights to see if they work properly.

    How do I replace a headlight bulb in my 1996 Olds achieva

    How to Replace a Headlight Bulb
    (DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 0.9 hour)

    1. Headlight Bulb

    1. Screwdriver
    2. 1/4 in. Drive Ratchet
    3. Socket Set


    HIGH PERFORMANCE HALOGEN HEADLIGHT BULB -- Low 45/high 65 watts, Dual C-8 filament for both high beam and low beam; 100 percent legal halogen headlight bulbs; Features the whitest and brightest light color similar to daylight for safer night driving; Meets all US FMVSS 108 and Canadian CMVSS 108 requirements.

    Step 1 Open the hood and locate the headlight assembly.
    o Tip: Most headlight assemblies have a place in the rear to gain access to the headlight bulb.
    o Tip: It is recommended that headlight bulbs are replaced in pairs.
    o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

    Step 2 Gain access to headlight bulb.
    o Tip: It is a good idea to check the high beam and low beam headlight bulbs at this time.

    Step 3 Disconnect the wiring harness and replace the old headlight bulb with a new one.


    Remove the retaining ring from the base of the bulb, then...


    ...turn the bulb and remove it from the headlight assembly.

    Step 4 Turn on the headlights and check high and low beams to verify repairs.

    Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

    Change headlight on 2008 Chevy Malibu

    Hi there,

    Well first you can please follow the below steps -
    1. Make sure the ignition key is in the off position and the headlight switch is off. Release the hood latch.
    2. Open the hood and locate the top of the headlight assembly where you intend to change the headlight. If a plastic shroud is present, locate the center bolt and remove it with a ratchet and a socket. Lift the shroud out of the way to access the headlight assembly retaining brackets. Some later models may feature a snap-release shroud requiring no tools to remove.
    3. Locate the brackets on the top rear of each side of the headlight assembly. Lift them all the way up to align the hole on the bottom of each bracket to the retaining tabs on the assembly.
    4. Pull the assembly forward away from the Malibu, but be careful not to scratch the bumper. There are three guide pins that require unseating. The guide pins are what aim the headlights and it may take some wiggling to get the pins from their seats.
    5. Support the assembly with one hand and then reach behind the unit with the other. The low beam bulb is on the outside, the high beam bulb is on the inside. You can also replace the parking light if desired. Locate the wire harness connection. Un-clip the wire harness from the back of the bulb socket. Remove the bulb by turning it counterclockwise 1/3 of a turn to align the release tabs of the ring and the assembly. Wiggle the bulb out of the assembly.
    6. Place the latex gloves on your hands before opening the package of the replacement bulb. Oil in our skin can damage the glass bulbs of halogen headlights.
    7. Carefully insert the new bulb into the ring and then align the tabs of the ring to the tabs of the headlight assembly. Push inward and then twist clockwise 1/3 of a turn to lock the bulb in place. Reattach the wire harness. Rest the headlight assembly inside its cavity and test the operation of the headlight before securing the headlight assembly in place. Be sure to turn the lights and ignition back off.
    8. Align the three guide pins to their seats and push the assembly back into them gently until they snap into place. Replace the retaining brackets by pushing them downward to lock into place. Replace shroud, if applicable. Remove the tools and old bulb and close the hood. Post comments for further help or information......

    Good Luck!!

    How to change left turn signal bulb

    Rear. 2 retainers PLUS a very tight ball socket holding the light assembly into place. Be ready to catch the tail light when you pop it of the ball socket.
    Front. Use the headlight removal tool in the tool kit. Open front bonnet and push down and remove tear shape trim on headlight side in question. Place headlight tool onto spline and with one hand ready to "catch" the headlight, turn the tool until headlight pushes forward. Then remove headlight by hand and replace globe as required. Be careful of bayonet fitting. Can be fragile.

    Trying to replace light bulbs, front and rear

    No usually for GM vehicles there are two pins on the headlight that you pull out and up. they are L shaped upside down. If not there are bolts holding the headlights on. But no special tool needed, it is a simple job, once the headlights are off twist the bulb counter clock wise, if they have a notch depress it and remove the bulb unhook it from the harness and you are done. Installation is reverse of removal.

    Headlight change

    it is actually quite easy and it will not require tools, but you have to remove the entire headlight assembly.

    Open the hood and as you look at the top of the headlight assembley you should notice two tabs, you will need to pull these up and then remove the assembly. Once it is out you will be able to unplug the wires from the lights and then remove the bulb.

    Replace the bulb, the wires and then reassemble, make sure that the tabs are pressed all the way down once finished and you are done

    Replace front driver signal light bulb

    Depending on whether it is the front or the back turn indicator light will determine on what needs to be done. If it is the front turn indicator light open the hood of the car you may need to take the entire headlight out. The headlight may have screws, take the screws out then the front light will come out from the outside of the vehicle replace the burned out bulb. The bulb should snap right in and then put the headlight back in make sure you put all screws back in from the inside of the hood. Step2 If it is the back turn indicator light, go through the trunk of the vehicle. If there is a panel covering the lights you must unscrew the panel and then replace the burned out light bulb. Some panels can be folded down without removing all of the screws to access the lights. This light may not require for you to pop the entire light out you maybe able to just replace the bulb. After you have replaced it screw the panel back into place. The back light should not require the entire light to be lifted out just a simple bulb replacement. Step3 In replacing either the front or the back indicator light you must gain access to the turn signal housing which is usually in the same case as the headlight or your rear lights. It is very helpful to also get the owners manual out this will tell you exactly what type of bulbs you will need to get to replace the indicator bulb.
