Can headlight lens be cleaned or does the whole assembly have to be replaced?


You can buy kits to clean them. If the lens' are easily accessible you should be able to. If they have trims around them it can still be done on the car, but removing them would do a much better job.

How do you change the front turn signal bulb on a 1994 ranger


Hi there,

Here are some few tips to help out. Firstly, remove the screws retaining the headlight and trim assembly. Then carefully rotate the headlight and trim assembly away from the vehicle, rotating the inboard side away from the vehicle. Remove the side marker, parking and turn signal bulbs and sockets from the headlamp and trim assembly. They can be removed by turning them. If you are replacing a lens, remove the retaining screws for the lens to be changed and remove it from the headlight door.

When removed, install the removed lens assembly. Then, install the bulbs and sockets and install the headlight and trim assembly. Make sure you check the operation of the lights.

Best of luck...

The headlight lens on the front right is very dull. How can I remove the lense and clean inside?


I've never seen the problem on the inside of the lens, only on the outside. Auto parts stores sell a kit to clean the lens.

How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


Hello,

This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

  • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
  • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
  • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
  • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
  • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
  • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
  • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
  • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
  • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
Take care and good luck

How do you change the front light on the drivers side.


since i've not personally had a chance to get my hands on this model of vehicle yet, i'm going to make an educated guess based on how it is done on the 02 sierra, since both are gm products. On the sierra there are 2 rods right at where the headlights are under the hood. Remove those rods to release the light bezels, the bezels should be able to be easily removed. from there just remove the bulb from its' socket, disconnect it from the wire, put in the new one and reassemble. Hope this helps

1999 taurus has foggy headlights.


Most Auto Stores sell a headlight solution that cleans the fogginess of your headlight. Assuming your headlight looks dirty and cloudy as would a pool, a simple solution is to pick up the cleaner at any auto place. That is a lot cheaper than buying a new headlight.

How to replace a headlight on a 2008 eqinox


Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out. Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight threw the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully. To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - Started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it. Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts. Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp. Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth. Re-assembly - I found that by inserting the light assembly under the grille first, I was able to get the two guide tabs to easily line up and pop in place. Everything else was easy.Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know how you did and please rate to make it easier to post back.

CHANGE HEAD LIGHT


you change the bulb from inside the engine compartment . raise the hood and feel for a plastic retaining ring in the back of the headlite. Loosen 1/4 turn and bulb socket and old bulb will pull out from the headlite assembly Unplug the old bulb and replace with new one . assemble in reverse order.
