    I cant get my hand back there to unclip the houseing...and I cant find the nut to get the housing out of it's place...

  • Coss May 11, 2010

    What is the problem you are having?

    The socket is inserted into the headlight housing, and it's usually a pretty simple procedure.

    Unclip the socket from the housing, change the bulb, reinsert the socket into the housing.

SOURCE: replace the headlight bulb

Remove the plastic access panel by pressing down on the tab at the top of the penel and pulling the top of the panel towards the engine and off. Needle nose pliers may help with the next steps to remove the spring clips. There are 2 bulbs, the top large bulb is the low beam. To remove it, first remove the socket attached to it, then press the top of the metal spring clip towards the front of the car and towards the passenger side (look closely at the clip to see the latch holding it. The clip then swings back towards the engine. Remove the old bulb, install the new bulb, replace the spring clip, re-connect the socket. (Don't touch the bulb, if you do clean it off with a lint free cloth and alcohol). To replace the lower bulb (parking light), remove the socket, then release the lower end of the spring clip, look closely and you'll see the latch holding it. You have to press it towards the front of the car and swing it towards the passenger side. It will swing up and release the bulb. Replace with new bulb, replace spring clip, connect socket. Don't forget to replace the plastic cover panel by inserting the bottom tabs into the sockets and snapping it closed at the top by pressing it towards the front of the car.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy S-10 Headlight bulb replacement?

There are two tabs that hold the Headlight assembly in place. Pull one up, then holding the Headlight assembly, pull the other one up. Locate the light that is burned out. Remove the harness from the light, then twist the light to remove. Replace with new one, and reverse process. Be careful to not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil from your fingers and hands will shorten the life of the bulb

It's not hard. Open the hood, locate the backside of the lite thats out(follow the wires) give the housing a slight counter-clockwise turn to remove it.
The bulb should pull out. Use a tissue to re-install the new bulb, as the oils on your fingers will cause the new one to overheat and burn out, prematurly

SOURCE: replacing headlight bulb ford focus

Most of this solution for changing a headlamp on a ford focus sedan is taken from solution 2's writeup, accept with a few more details that should help changing the bulb assembly for the novice. Pop the hood. At the front of the car, look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a plastic cover on the back. On some models, you need to unscrew the plastic cap; on others, it just pops or screws off. Remove the plastic cover and then take note of the orientation of the three prong connector on the back of the bulb assembly. This is important because the replacement bulb assembly is going to have to be positioned in the same manner. By noting the orientation before taking out the old assembly, it will be easier to orient the replacement bulb assembly after removal.
There is a small retaining clip that surrounds and holds the bulb in place. Removing the clip can be tricky. On my 2003 Ford Focus sedan, there is a special place to push and release the clip that is above the bulb - perhaps further above than you might think. Push the release clip and it will release the retaining clip from the bulb assembly. Gently pull the retaining clip down and out of the way of the bulb assembly. Pull the original bulb straight out. Remove the three prong connector from the bulb assembly. Connect the three prong connector to the replacement bulb and then orient the three prong connector as the original and push bulb assembly straight back into place. Jiggle the assembly slightly to seat it into the correct position in the headlamp housing and replace the retaining clip to hold the bulb in place. Replace the plastic cover on the back of the headlamp and replacement is complete.
No tools. 10 minutes.

Im trying to change a headlight


On that year and make of car you don't replace the headlight unit, just the bulb. Usually you have to open the hood and you can get to the bulb from that back side of the headlight housing. You give the holder/socket about a 1/4 turn and then pull it back and away; once clear of the assembly you'll see the bulb in the part you just took out. The bulb just pulls straight out of the holder. Sometimes getting to the back of the headlight assembly is really hard, sometimes not. Just go to your local auto parts store to purchase the replacement. The one warning is to never touch the bulb with your bare hands (fingers). The oil from your body will cause the bulb to burn out. Either wear rubber gloves when handling the bulb or a clean rag. To be extra sure, once you install the bulb in the socket, wipe it off with an alcohol wipe, then install it back into the headlight assembly.

How do I remove halogen low beam head light to replace it?


Removal & Installation To Remove:

Removing the bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlight bulb performance. Contaminants may enter the headlight assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector. Never turn on the headlights with the bulb removed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. NOTE: Make sure that the headlight switch and the ignition switch are in the OFF position.

I'm having a hard time replacing the driver side headlight. Am I overthinking this?


Why are you trying to change the headlight? Is it broken?
If you are trying to change the bulb, because it is burned out, that is done from the rear of the housing. You have to exercise a bit of care getting the old bulb out and putting the new one in, but is it not difficult. If you are removing the right-side (from the driver's position) bulb, remove the battery (make sure you have your radio anti-theft code if you have one of those radios). Reach behind the headlight assembly, grasp the bulb holder retaining collar, turn it counterclockwise, then pull out the bulb/holder assembly. To remove the bulb from the holder, simply pull it straight out of the holder. Reverse procedure to lock the holder into place.
Removing the headlight housing is somewhat more involved. There are five bolts that hold it in place.

most of the time the headlight assemblys are replaced because of this at my work (toyota dealeraship ) but i would try to take apart the headlight assembly very carefully by prying up the tabs and glue that attach the front to the bach then clean out and reseal, or you could try to use a clothes hanger with a small amount of cloth or paper towel taped to the end and insert through the hole where the headlight bulb goes may take some time but could save you a considerable amount of money hope this helps

VW NEW BEETLE HEADLIGHT REPLACE


Try this:
  1. Before you try removing the headlight housings, check for a blown fuse first, since the headlight circuits on these cars are fused. The fuse is located on the regular fuse panel inside the car, on the left side of the dashboard behind the removable cover.
    Well, since there are no visible screws anywhere around, how do I get the headlight out? It’s not that hard at all.
  2. Open the hood. Locate the seam between the nosepiece and the front fender (either side). Go up between the first two fender mounting bolts and look down a few inches. See a small knob sticking out at you? That is a release lever for the headlight assembly. Push in on it slightly and pull all the way up as far as the lever will go.
  3. Now push on the headlight from behind with one hand and be prepared to catch the assembly with the free hand from the front. It may take a bit of a push because there is some gooey adhesive between the headlight and the fender.
  4. Once you have the headlight out, pull the connector off the back of the housing and take the headlight somewhere where it is easy to work on. Put it on a pillow or something soft so you don’t risk scratching the lens.
  5. There is a black plastic cover on the back of the housing. See a tab on it? Push on this tab and pull the cover down to expose the bulbs.
  6. There is a metal spring clip that holds these bulbs in place. Undo this and the bulb will fall out. Take out the new bulb and compare it with the one you are replacing. Make sure the wattage is correct, since they are both H1 bulbs. Never touch the glass part of the bulb itself with your fingers.
  7. Use the soft cloth to handle the bulb if needed. Line up the tabs of the bulb base with the slots in the reflector housing and drop the bulb in. Put the spring clip back on and make sure the ends of the clip are in securely. Put the bulb cover back on. Now is the time to clean up the mess around the fender where the headlight mounts. Remember seeing that nasty-looking goo seep out from around the rubber seal on your headlights? That’s the adhesive I was talking about earlier.
  8. Take the adhesive remover on the paper towels and remove this stuff from the fender before putting the headlight back in. Don’t remove all of it from behind the headlight itself, as it is there to keep excess amounts of water from getting behind the headlight. Just remove enough to where it won’t make a mess anymore. A little wax around the mounting area on the fender will detail things out nicely.
  9. Position the headlight up to the fender. Push on the wire connector. Line up the tabs on the headlight assembly to the slots in the headlight housing in the fender and push the whole thing in. Sometimes things won’t line up on the first try, but keep trying. The headlight should go up against the fender fairly easily.
  10. Once you get it to this point, grab the release lever, push all the way down, and lock the headlight assembly into place.
