Yes you can replace headlights bulbs and no you don't take the bumper off that would be crazy.
you access the bulbs from inside the engine compartment. and yes it is a little tight.

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.

One high beam not working 2006 Buick lacrosse


Sampson, sounds like a bunt out bulb, which will need changed.
If you feel comfortable doing it yourself. Basically three screws, and you have to pull one plastic fastener from the fascia (bumper) and pull the bumper back a bit, and pull the assembly out. I believe it is in the manual, not bad to do. I will post a link to tell or show you how to do it. Press the helpful button

How to replace front turn signal bulb


The easiest way to me is to remove the bumper and then the headlight is held in with 3 small bolts. Remove them, then the bulbs are easily accessible.

You *might* be able to snake your hands in behind the headlight but you will curse a lot. It also help to know exactly how it looks in the back (maybe google some pictures of the back of the headlight) so you know how to reach and untwist the little bulb holder.

Or drive in to the dealership and ask them to replace the bulb for you. Sometimes they just do it then and there.

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!

I am having a problem trying to replace the low beam headlight bulbs( yes, both sides) for my 2002 Toyota Celica GT. The owners manual doesn't give clear directions for removing the headlight assembly....


Sorry, this is one of those you have to feel for the socket to remove it. did you check the fuse, it is rare that both low beam bulbs would go out at the same time. Don't remove the front bumper what ever you do, it is a nightmare and an accidental deployment of the airbag could occur.

How to replace headlights without breaking assembly.


You are supposed to remove the front bumper to take the headlight out.

However if you remove the vertical philips/10mm bolt at the far back edge of the bumper and a few of the upper 10mm bolts on the bumper cover, you can pull the bumper down far enough to access the one hidden bolt on the side of the headlight.
Just be careful you do not damage the paint when doing so.

Headlight bulb


To replace the headlight bulb on your cts, it is kinda a pain. You pretty much have to take the whole front bumper off. First remove all of the push pins that hold the air deflector on the bottom. Next remove the pushpins that hold the grille to the tie bar. Now remove the front fascia extension. Remove the bolts that hold the bumper to the fender. Once all the bolts are out that hold the bumper on, you gently pull out on the bumper, but be careful not to crack it. If the windshield washer hoses are connected to it then you need to disconnect them, but you may want to plug the line so you don't loose all the washer fluid. Next there are two bolts and a nut that you remove to take the headlight out, and remove the connectors that go to it.

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.
