How to change headlights


this is regarding low beam head lamps. i have a 2006 kia optima and to change the head lamp, there is a cap right behind the head lamp area that screws off. remove the connection to the head lamp. oncece the cap is unscrewed and the connection is removed, you will see a clamp that keeps the lamp bulb in place. save yourself the headache and do not unscrew this clamp as it is aggrivating to screw back into place....on the opposite side of the screw u can push on the clamp ( i think it is downward) and it will swivel one side away from the lamp bulb, just that side, while the screw side keeps the clamp in place. remove the bulb, place your new on into place (there are 3 notches on the metal part of the lamp bulb that sit into place. take a look and u will see how they need to sit.) replace the clamp, replace the connection and screw cap back on and you are finished. the first time took a minute to figure out, but once u do it, it only takes about 5 minutes to do after that first initial time.

2008 kia optima break lights not working



  • kia optima brake light
  • Open the hood and locate the battery. Remove the cable from the negative terminal (black cable) by turning the retaining nut on the cable clamp counterclockwise with a socket wrench until the clamp is loose enough to slide off the terminal. You must disconnect the battery's negative terminal to avoid a potential electrical shock when working on any electrical component in your KIA.
  • Open the trunk and pull back the carpet near the tail light assembly.
  • Remove the three nuts holding the lamp assembly in place and pull the lamp assembly out.
  • Remove the bulb assembly by rotating the bulb counterclockwise and pulling the bulb straight out of the housing.
  • Install the new bulb. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  • Reconnect the cable to the negative battery terminal.

    Stop light


    Rear combination light assembly contains three bulbs. Two bulbs are single-filament and are used in hazard/turn signal and backup light circuits. Third bulb is a dual filament bulb; one filament functions as brake light and other as tail light. A plastic bulb holder mounts three lamps and associated wiring. Bulb holder can be removed from inside vehicle for bulb replacement
