How do you access the headlights on a 2008 chevy hhr I need to change them.


Most Chevy headlights are held in place by three 10 mm bolts...as you remove all 3, you can lift the headlight assembly forward and expose the headlight bulbs...be sure to use bulb lubricant when installing the new bulbs, also wear gloves so you do not touch (harmful hand grease) the new bulb filaments...our normal hand grease can cause shorter bulb life. Hope this helps.

HOW TO CHANGE THE HEADLIGHTS ON MY 98 CROWN VIC


hello;
if it is a plastic headlight housing you can change just the bulbs lift the hood up and look behind the headlight housing for the access area. unplug the connector and turn the plastic ring off 1/4 turn to the left, then pull the bulb out of socket area. reverse going back together.
if no access panel it may have 2 plastic clips on top of headlight housings pull up on them about 1/2 way and entire headlight housing comes off to gain access for the first part of my notes.
good luck steve

Changing headlight bulb on mitsubishi starwagon express


ok look, I can't draw, I tried. Feel gratefull, I had to break parts of the car just find this out!
To do this you need to remove the headlight assembly, much the same as you'd do if you had to replace the whole assembly because of a crash.
  1. Remove small panel that runs under headlights and around the side car. NOTE: The indicator plastic light box (the whole thing) is actually a part of this seemingly small panel.
    * Inside the car, behind the door, near the hinge
    * 2 of them under the headlight, in the small gap between headlight and bumper (good luck mine were rusted and I had to forcefully remove the small panel.
  2. Now you will see 2 bolts holding the headlight assemply in place, undo them
  3. There is also a bolt UNDER the headlight assembly, remove it. Now the assembly is not attached to the car (other than by the electrical wires). I had to remove the whole bumper to find this out. When putting it all back together I didn't pay enough attention to note if that bottom bolt was accesible without removing the bumper. I am pretty sure it would be but may require some mechanical acrobatics.
  4. Now that the assembly is out you can unscrew the 2 large plastic caps on the back to access the bulbs (this is much the same as in the few modern sedans I have had to change light bulbs in). There is also a smaller screw in type plastic bulb holder I believe this was the parking light.
  5. There are 3 bulbs, I am assuming you have the ability to actually disconnect and remove them, if not maybe you sould be paying an auto electrician or a friend to do this.
NOTES:
  1. The issue I had was how to access the bulbs, it was not obvious to me, I expected that no immediate rear access would have made the bulb change occur on the OUTSIDE behind the glass, not removing the whole bloody head light assembly.
  2. Mine was an old 1992 piece of ****, breaking bolts and stuff if need be was fine by me as it would have still been road worth but having no headlight is not.
  3. On a 20 percent off store wide day I bought the following items from Supercheap Auto in Austraalia for about $26.00
  4. 1 x Headlight Bulb
  5. 1 x High Beam Bulb
  6. 1 x 2 pack parker bulb
  7. 1 x 2 pack interrior light bulb.
  8. 1 x Single 14mm socket ($4 to replace one I have been missing for ages)
  9. The point of the above list is that it is bloody cheap :D

Tools Used:
  1. 10mm Socket (headlight assembly and or bumper bar)
  2. 12mm Socket (headlight assembly and or bumper bar)
  3. Philips (star) head screw driver I don't know the sizes. (indicator panel, number plate, buttom of bumper bar underneath each side door)
  4. Rachet from a socket set, and a small extender bar.
  5. All of the above is probably posible with only open/closed ended spanners, i wouldn't want to try it though :D
  6. Any additional tools I used certainly wouldn't be required if you knew what you were doing when you started :D But it was fun!

Do I need to remove entire grill to change front left headlight?


If they are sealed beam headlights then you have to remove the grille in order to gain access to the screws to change the light. If they are halogen bulbs, they are accessed from behind the headlight. Held in by a retaining ring.

How to change headlight on 2007 saturn outlook


Best method that I found is to just take the 6 phillips screws (4 in the well and 2 below the front bumper cover) out of the forward wheel well panel and reach in behind the panel to the headlight assembly.

I lost the manual for my 1995 miata and i need to change the busted right headlight. can you please show me how. thanks.


There should be an access panel at the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the cover and replace the halogen bulb. Pretty easy job. Some of the covers screw off.
