How to Replace Headlight Bulb on 2005 Prius?


Remove fender well trim ( a few screws)
Remove front bumper COVER (not the bumper- the plastic cover)
About 14 screws. Mostly on the underside, get a creeper, and a few
on the top.

Remove the (left or right side) Headlight assembly ( a couple more screws).
One assembly contains the headlight, turn signal and running light. Unplug
the electrical connector from the assembly. All bulbs remove from the back
of the headlight assembly. Headlight is held in place by bail wire, smaller
bulbs are 1/4 turn.

How to remove headlight assembly


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

Accessing your headlight assembly varies depending on the make and model of your car. Some vehicles will allow you to access your headlight assembly via the engine compartment or wheel well and others require you to remove your bumper.

Without knowing exactly what kind of car you have, you will need to confirm which avenue your car requires by looking at your users manual.

You can purchase replacement air filter parts for most cars models direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

How to take passenger headlamp out of 328i bmw 2008 so it can be replaced?


2008 328i Passenger headlight assembly removal.

The headlight assembly is held in by 4 "star" bolts (size 25); 2 visible on the top of the assembly, 2 not visible or easily accessible.

The 2 bolts not so visible require that the front half of the wheel well come off and the front bumper or "nose" of the car.... The bumper is what needs to come off, but there are 2 bumper bolts hidden by the wheel well.

The wheel well is held in by 7mm bolts, 2 of which are actually bolted to the bumper on the bottom.

The front bumper is held on with 7mm bolts on the bottom edge, and star bolts, size 25, accessible on the top edge. (Hood open). Here were my steps.

1. Jack up the car on the side you are replacing, remove wheel.
2. Using 7mm socket, remove all the bolts to peel off the front half of the wheel well. With the wheel well out, you can see the 2 other star bolts holding the headlight assembly, but you can only remove one of them... even if you were good enough to get both removed, the headlight assemble will not push out through the bumper.... Keep going with bumper removal.
3. Remove 2, 7mm bolts of the front bumper that are now visible up near the outer edge of the headlight assembly.
4. At this point I removed the bumper's top edge start bolts and bottom edge 7mm bolts about 3/4 of the way across the bumper...
5. The bumper is very flexible and you can now pull it back , reach in, and get that last difficult star bolt on the headlight assembly....
6. Don't forget the one electrical connector....
7. I also recommend testing the new assembly by plugging it in before removing anything

Headlight assembly


You have to remove or half remove the front bumper. After you do that the bolts retaining the headlight bucket should be exposed. The screws/bolts you come across will probably be: 5.5mm, 8mm, 10mm, 13mm, and maybe some larger sizes, but it is all metric.

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!

How to replace headllight lamp


I know your frustration! I cannot believe the complexity of changing the headlights. Chevy has tried to make this a dealer item only just to change a headlight bulb. I will try to explain the procedure unfortunately I do not have photos. First you will need to remove the wheel well liner (two bolts and two plastic push pins). Pull the wheel well housing back (you will need to turn the wheel/tire to gain access) and using a 7mm socket remove the plastic support piece that holds the bumper in place (two bolts). Pull the corner of the bumper down until you can locate the bottom bracket of the headlight assembly that is held by a 10mm bolt. Remove it. (Oh did I mention this is a two person job!) Next move to the front of the vehicle (hood up) and remove all the 10mm bolts holding the upper part of the grill (I think there are eight of them). Now remove the obvious top two bolts on the headlight assembly! With two people - one to work the headlight assembly and one to push down the bumper and pull out on the grill assemble, slowly and carefully pull the headlight assembly straight forward. You will need to be mindfully of the small tabs on the headlight assembly that like to get caught on bumper/grill. If you are just replacing the bulb, you should be able to move the headlight assemble far enough forward to gain access to the bulbs without totally removing the headlight assembly. What a ***** job! SHAME on GM.
