Easy way to change headlight bulb on 2011 chysler 200.


Open the hood. Look at the back of the head light assembly. You will have one of two set ups. At the back the assembly will have either two bolts at the top the frame underneath it. Remove the bolts and pull it straight out. Plugs hold it in after that. Or looking at the back again, you will see two metal tabs that have to be pulled up, then pull out on the assembly. The entire lens has to come out of the front to replace bulbs. Just a note, look at the plugs and check for corrosion. Clean them with battery terminal cleaner.

How to change the right front turn pulb? 1998 ford taurus


unbolt the headlight (4 bolts on top, one of then is a tightening bolt, a long skinny bolt, try loosening that one, you can tell which one it is 'cuz there is no bracket on it.). Remove it then go in from the side you should be able to just reach the bulb socket, I think it twists out,you should be able to twist it with your fingers.

How do I change the rear turn signal bulb on my 2007 pontiac g6 convertible


Probably too late for you, but others may benefit as I just did this.
In your trunk on each rear side panel, you will find several rubber stoppers approximately 1" wide. take a flat head screwdriver and pry underneath to loosen then pull the stopper out.
Take a socket set you and find the right size socket for your nut and take out the 2 nuts on top and the bolt at the bottom (my bottom bolt didn't have a stopper on it).
Pull out the tail light assembly. Remove the bad bulb from the back of the assembly and replace with a new bulb (look up type of bulb to buy in your owners manual). Replace hardware and test lights.

How do I change the back turn signal on my 2001 ford taurus


DIY - 5 Minute Turn Signal Bulb Replacement This is very simple to do. First you will need an 8mm socket and wrench to loosen one bolt. Second a good long flat head screwdriver. There are two black metal folded tabs behind the headlight assembly and one 8mm bolt holding it in plae at the center point of the front of the car. Loosen the bolt and remove. Use the screw driver to pull up the metal straps and then slide forward the entire assembly. This will slide easily unless your front bumper has been bumped! That will make it a little difficult to slide if it is out of alignment. If it was never bumped than this should take all of 5 minutes.

Replacing front parking lamp/turn signal/cornering lamp bulbs
  1. Remove headlight / lens assembly per below steps mentioned later

  2. Rotate the bulb socket of the offending bulb counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly.

  3. Carefully pull bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb

  4. Install the bulb socket into the headlight assembly by rotating it clockwise

  5. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

To replace headlight bulb:
  1. Make sure headlight switch is turned OFF.

  2. Remove the bolt at the end of the headlamp housing.

  3. Pull the two black tabs with the L shaped bracket toward the back and then up and pull out(Located at the back of the headlamp) to release the headlamp assembly from the vehicle and pull headlamp assembly forward.

  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling it.

  5. Remove the bulb socket retaining ring by rotating it counterclockwise.

  6. Remove the bulb from the lamp assembly by pulling straight back.
    Do not twist, as there are alignment slots built into the lamp assembly socket.
    It may take some effort to remove the lamp because it has a rubber o-ring type seal - try a bit of wiggling side-to-side

  7. Insert new bulb into headlight assembly - don't touch the glass - use gloves, paper towel, or similar
    Make sure that the flat surface of the bulb socket is facing upward, and is firmly seated

  8. Re-attach retainer ring by rotating clockwise

  9. Reconnect the electrical harness

  10. Re-install headlight assembly - hold snugly into place until the brackets line up and retainer pins can be pushed down

NOTES
  • Do not touch the glass of the new halogen bulb - the oils in the skin will shorten the life-span of the new bulb, or possibly cause the bulb to explode when first turned on

    If the bulb is accidentally touched, it should be cleaned with rubbing alcohol before being used.

How do I change the bulbs in the head light assembly?


Access the bulb from the rear of the headlight assembly. Squeeze the clip, and turn it counter clock wise, and pull it out. Pull the bulb out, and replace. Be sure not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. The natural oil on your fingers will cause the bulb to prematurely fail.

This is a rather difficult task to perform as the complete headlamp must be removed to do so. Here is what you will need to do to access the bulb. Feel free to contact me with any questions! Good luck.

  • Remove the 2 forward wheelhouse liner screws.
  • Remove the 2 washer container push pins.
  • Open the hood.
  • Remove the 6 upper fascia bolts right to the hood latch mechanism.

  • Loosen the 2 fascia to fender bolts from under the fascia.
  • Pull the outboard end of the front fascia straight outboard until it disengages from the fender attachment bracket.
  • Pull the fascia forward and downward to allow enough clearance to remove the headlamp assembly.
  • Loosen the lower outboard attachment bolts.
  • Remove the 2 upper headlamp bolts.
  • Grasp the headlamp at the upper inboard and lower outboard side and pull the headlamp forward to disengage the locating tab.

    How do i change my front lights on my durango. The screws on front are stripped and my allen wrenches wont work.can i go from inside?


    if your trying to change the bulbs you have to do it from inside by twisting the plug counter clockwise and pulling. however if your taking the whole headlight assembly out yur still messin around with the wrong screws, those allen screws are for headlight adjustment only,, ther are two bolts and a peg, the first bolt is sandwiched between the bumper and head light, the second is behind the head light and can be acessed by lifting the hood so the grille is out of the way and reaching in from the side they are 10mm bolts good luck

    Headlight bulb replacement on chrysler 300m


    Parts Required: Change all the lights at once, it is not worth the anguish of doing this over and over again
    2 low-beam lights, 2 high-beam/running lights, 2 parking lights - part nos in the owners manual


    A can of diet coke to clean the battery terminals is also recommended. *optional



    Tools required

    Ratchet set : 10mm, 7mm, 6mm sockets
    Extension 12"
    Large Flat screwdriver, small 4" flat screwdriver and a pair of pliers
    Flash-light
    12" Magnetic tip telescoping bit

    Surgical gloves

    Battery terminal cleaner * optional



    Step 1:

    First take off the plastic cover that cover that is across the front of the engine compartment. 6 push pins hold it in place, Use the long flat screw driver to pry them up and use the pliers to pull them off.


    Gently take the plastic cover off and set it aside.


    Step 2:

    Next you will see 3 push pins that hold the front grill to the engine housing, using the long flat and a pair of pliers pull the 3 push pins out.


    Step 3:
    In the upper area of each wheel well, you will see a large 2.5" rubber grommet. Pull the rubber grommet out



    Step 4:
    Locate a 6mm bolt head that is driven vertically upwards. It is not visible looking at the wheel well. You have to lay down on the floor and you will find it about a foot below the grommet and at the edge of the fender. Use the the ratchet to remove this bolt headed screw. It is about a 1.5" long. Do this for both sides before going to the next step


    Step 5:

    Start with the passenger side as it is easier. Use the flash light and peer into the fender area from the engine compartment. You will see a nut on a bolt, and a plastic fastener.
    Use the 10mm socket on the 12" extension. Insert it into the hole where the grommet was, and guide the socket on the nut head. It is about an 1" long. Be careful as you take it off, else you will be fishing for the bolt in the fender.

    Step 6:
    Pull on the plastic fender in the front till the bolt head and the fastener exit the fender. This has to be repeated for each side.

    Step 7:
    Locate 8mm bolt heads on top of the light assembly. Note it is not the Philips head - they are to level the lamps. Before undoing the bolts, check the spirit level on top of the lamp assembly and make a note of the bubbles position. You will need this when you put the assembly back. Undo both bolts, they have about an 1" of thread on the top and then you have to pull it up physically or with the use of the pliers

    Step 8:
    Pull the headlight assembly out - gently. Don't scratch the paint work and don't damage the rubber molding around the light assembly.

    Step 8a*: If you see any salt build up on the battery terminals, pour diet coke or pepsi on the terminals, this neutralizes all the salt. Then pour some water to clean the gunk and then with a paper towel dry it. Be careful with the paper towel, as it contains sulfuric acid and is corrosive, put in in a garbage bag immediately. If you feel it has come into contact with your skin, was vigorously before continuing.

    Step 9:
    Note the position of the connector before you do anything. Turn the retaining rings holding each bulb counter clock wise. When you do this the bulb assembly and the connector will pull free. Two instances of this. Remove assembly, and place securely on a table

    Step 10:
    Locate the parking light below and turn the connector clockwise as you are looking over it. Pull out the old bulb and replace it. Do this for both sides. Turn on the parking lights to ensure they work, try the signals too. No sense it putting it all back together and nothing works. Replace the holder and bulb in reverse order. Note the unit should fit in nicely and rotate smoothly as you turn counter clockwise this time.

    Step 11:
    Using the 4" flat screwdriver, lift the locking pins gently and push the bulb out, Start with the low beams. Low beam has only 1 filament, high-beam/running light has 2 filaments. Put on the pair of surgical gloves, and open the pack of new bulbs, push the bulbs into the empty sockets, until the locking pins click into place. Change the low-and high beams.

    Step 12:
    Insert the bulb with the connector in the position you noted in step 9. Slide the mounting ring and then lock it into place by turning it clock-wise as you are looking at it from the rear of the assembly. Repeat this for both the high beam and low beam. Slide assembly back into cavity. Repeat this for the other side. Test the bulbs light correctly

    Step 13:
    Gently push back the front plastic so that the bolt and the plastic stud enter the fender. Pay attention to ensure that the fender lining sits correctly. Using the 12" ratchet extension and the 10mm socket mount the bolt back on and tighten. Do this for both sides

    Step 14:
    Using the ratchet mount the 6mm fastener on to the fender. Do this for both sides

    Step 15:
    Mount the jack screws on top of the headlight assembly. Tighten till the bubble in the spirit level returns to the original position. Don't push the bolt past its maximum. If it doesn't return to the original level, loosen and adjust the headlamp assembly and re-tighten. Do this for both headlamps.

    Step 16:
    Replace the 3 push pins that hold the front grill to the engine compartment. Replace the large plastic panel that was removed in step 1 and remount it using the 6 push pins.


    Voila - you have changed all the bulbs on the front of the 1999 300M.
