Can't get the head lamp bulbs out removed The cover unplugged the light pulled the Wire harness down but the bulbs won't Budge

Almost all headlight bulbs have a bayonet mount with a rubber gasket. The bulbs have to be turned about 1/4 turn, usually counterclockwise, to remove them. If you have the new bulb, look closely at the mount on it. It will be helpful in knowing how the bulbs are installed. If the bulb has contacts that you push into the holder, the holder is what you need to get out. It will have the bayonet mount. Sometimes the bayonet is hard to turn if the gasket is stuck to the housing. However, don't use any solvent or lubricant because if it gets into the housing it can damage the mirror coating. Even moisture inside the housing can damage the coating, so be sure you install the new bulb correctly with the gasket in place. Be sure not to touch the new bulb with your bare fingers. The oil from your skin will burn on the bulb surface and shorten its life and light output. Never touch any halogen bulb with your bare fingers.

How do i change the rear brake light in a toyota corolla 2003

  • Pop the trunk.
  • Look at the backside of the tail light area – it’s wide open. Turn the affected light bulb socket to the left. It’ll take some force, but you won’t break it.
  • Once it unlocks, you can pull the light bulb out.
  • Push the new bulb in.
  • Put the socket back into its place by pushing it in, then turning to the right. It’ll lock back into place.
  • Test the brake light to make sure it works.

    Changing headlight on 2003 Accent How do you unplug it? Tried pulling but it won't budge

    Things you will need: Replacement bulbs #3009, patience, a pair of thin gloves, maybe a needle-nosed plier.

    I recommend doing the passenger side bulb first - this way you can see how it all pieces together, without the frigging battery getting in the way. Wear gloves so you minimize risk of touching the new bulb. Whatever you do, don't let your skin contact the new bulb. You can touch the metal parts around it, but don't touch the glass.

    Now to the nitty gritty:

    1) Remove the plug from the bulb. There are two little squeezy-tabs on the long ends of the plug, located where one would logically grasp the plug to remove it. Once depressed, these tabs will unlock the socket and allow you to pull the plug off of the bulb. For the driver's side, I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to depress the tabs, because I do not have tiny hands.

    2) Remove the rubber gasket. This is pretty easy. Just kind of work it off.

    3) Remove the bulb from the bulb housing. This is kind of tricky! There is a little paper clip type thing holding the bulb into place. On one side of the bulb, towards the bottom, you will see a little metal outcrop that is holding this clip into place. Depress the clip towards the front of the car and this clip should come out, and swing upwards. You can then remove the old bulb.

    4) Very carefully put the new bulb into the housing and clip it down. Be sure to properly align the tabs on the bulb, and don't touch the glass part! Make sure the plug on the back of the bulb is aligned so that the only horizontal metal part is on top of the plug, not the bottom.

    5) Replace the rubber gasket. This is also easy. Work it in there, and push the middle back in so that it is fitting snugly around the bulb, and you have easy access to the plug part. It should be fully visible.

    6) Put that dang plug back on there. Don't worry about depressing the little push-tabs, it will snap on.
    This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

    My 2005 chrysler 300 is stuck in park.

    I have the same problem today, I took the shift cover off and pulled that piece back with a screwdriver and it let me put it in drive. It appears to be where the brake cable releases the shifter release. Seems like an easy piece to change but I can't figure out how to get to it without taking the whole console out.

    No light under console shifter

    Half the answer?

    There is a small access panel to the right of the shifter where a small flathead screw driver can be gently placed. Pry out the plastic panel. Now gently work the black trim off that surrounds the shifter using the inside of the hole that you just opened.

    The trim will pop up. The silver piece of plastic will pull up. (The part that the shifter works through.) Now you can pull up the piece of plastic that has the gears listed on it. Set this aside. There is a small led bulb under this piece- to the left of the shifter.

    Now, I have no idea how to get the bulb out. I have tried prying it out, and I broke the bulb, but it did not work anyway. My point is be careful because the glass went everywhere. Wear eye protection. I am stuck at this point.

    There is a piece of black plastic around the base of the bulb, but I cannot figure out how to remove the bulb itself. Access is tight. The bulb is in a "ditch" of plastic with no real room to work in.

    I tried to remove the armrest, but there is no access from this side.

    I believe u have the sealed beam headlight---remove the screws holding the trim ring around the headlight, being careful NOT to touch the adjusting screws that aim the unit. U want to remove the 4 screws that go into the trim piece that fits around the edge of the headlight, make sure u take a good look w/ a light, to make sure u are removing the screws holding the trim piece. Pull the headlight out, unplug it, replace w/ new one and u r good to go.
    If u have the newer style headlight (I'm quite sure '87 and above do, not sure of '86), u have to replace the halogen bulb only. 1st thing to know is to be careful handling this type of bulb. Don't touch the new bulb w/ your hands, wear gloves or hold bulb w/ a clean rag. If u touch it oils from your skin will cause it to overheat and burn out prematurely, and it also contains gas in the bulb and is under high pressure, so dropping or scratching the surface can cause old or new bulb to shatter, wear goggles to be safe. Open hood, locate rear of headlight assembly, unplug electrical connector, rotate bulb retaining ring counterclockwise 1/8 turn (as viewed from the rear), and slide it off the bulb base. Pull bulb straight out, don't twist. To install, bulb goes in flat side up, insert into headlight assembly, u may have to turn it slightly to align the locating tabs,when aligned push bulb firmly into place, 'til bulb contacts the mounting flange in the socket, put retaining ring over bulb base against the mounting flange, rotate clockwise. Snap electrical connector in place. good luck! countrycurt0

    How do I change brake light bulb on 2005 Nissan Altima

    The first objective is to figure out which bulb you need. I had to replace the bulb for the largest light which was a Sylvania 3157. The next objective is to remove the dang plastic carpet holder/net clip. Recognize that it is a two part piece. Use a flathead screwdriver for leverage. Pry the cap off by levering the screwdriver in the slot on the holder. Then go behind the carpet and pinch the plastic pin still holding the holder in place. Next,pry off the while plastic pieces from the two bolt/nuts you'll need to remove (see manual). Remove the nuts and give the two screws a push from the inside so you can see how the whole light casing comes off. Pry it off from the outside. On the backside of the bulb holder, turn bulb base counterclockwise and gently remove. Pull bulb upward and replace. Do not touch glass on new bulb with your fingers (wear non-powdered rubber gloves). Make sure the bulb snaps in place. Follow these instructions in reverse. Smile, you just learned something new and saved yourself some easy money.
