First you have to remove the turn signal lamp. There is a plastic release tang that you push one way and pull the turn signal out. Next you have to remove the filler panel below the headlight assy to gain access to the bottom bolt. 2 screws hold the filler in place. There is also a black plastic filler panel that is pinned to the headlight assy remove it. There are 3 or 4  bolts that hold the headlamp assy in place 2 on top 1 on bottom actually it might be 2 on the bottom. (old age memory loss LOL) remove the bolts and remove the headlamp assy. The lens is held in by plastic clips just pry up gently on the locking clips and remove the lens. I hope this helps. It fairly easy and you should be able to DIY. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How do I access the left front turn signal bulb?


prop open the hood, grab a straight-edge screwdriver or upholstery removal driver (seems to work better for me) and remove the small, round-headed clips that hold the plastic cover that spans the front of the car over the headlights, then remove the cover itself.
Now, with the cover off, look down directly at the headlight assembly - you'll notice a small rectangular **** cut out right where your headlight lens and signal lens meet.
Grab a long screwdriver and put it down that **** and there is a clip that holds the signal lens in place using the headlight assembly. Use the screwdriver to unclip the signal lens as you pull on the lens to get it loose from the headlight assembly. If you can't see the clip, just grab a flashlight and shine it down into the hold and you'll see it, it's a pretty big clip.
Once you have pulled the signal lens out, you will need a large Torx bit and a ratchet to take off the 2 large silver Torx bolts that are holding the headlight assembly down. You can also use just a regular hex socket of the appropriate size to get these off.
Now with those two bolts removed, it's easy sailing - just pull up on the headlight assembly and out, and now you have easy access to the back of the headlight lens where you will now be able to see where the headlight plugs in.
Around the light is a black plastic locking piece that locks the lens in place - simply twist it off and the light can be taken out of the lens. There's also a blue clip that holds the light into the electrical socket, which can sometimes be a pain in the **** to get off, but just take your time - you don't want to break these parts 'cause they're expensive to replace!
After you have the blue clip off, you can now just take out the light, replace it with your new one (make sure you don't touch the bulb!), and reverse these directions to put the lenses back in properly, and repeat for the other side of the car.

Hope this helps! If you need clarification, just ask.

Drivers side headlight bulb replacement


  1. Open the hood to the 1999 Dodge Stratus.

  2. Locate the two headlight lens assembly retaining screws at the top of each side of the assembly.
  3. Remove each screw with the ratchet and a suitable socket.
  4. Place the screwdriver behind the lens assembly to assist in prying out the guide pins that secure and align the headlight assembly. Hold the lens assembly from the outside edge (marker light/directional light section) first and pry from behind with the screwdriver to unseat the guide pins. Pry from the inside end of the lens assembly to unseat the other guide pin.
  5. Pull the lens assembly out far enough to reach behind it and disconnect the headlight bulb wire harness from the back of the bulb. Or simply remove the bulb by twisting the harness and retaining ring counterclockwise and remove it as an assembly.
  6. Turn the marker light/directional light socket and wire counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight lens assembly.
  7. Remove the assembly from the front of the Stratus.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

A bird flew into my headlight and broke it. There is a hole in it but the light still seems to be working. Can I just replace the cover or does the whole headlight need to be replaced. How much does it...


You cannot just replace the headlight lens. The headlight is an assembly and the entire assembly must be replaced. You can get one on the internet at many sites. You may want to replace them both if the lens has become cloudy and hazy or your vehicle will look odd with one shiny clean lens and one cloudy lens. They are not that expensive on this sire at $42.

I don't know how to take off the head light lens cover on my nissan maxiuma


Probably not a lens cover at all. It's just a 1 piece plastic headlight. It you are wanting to replace a bulb , they go in from the back . Open the hood and you should be able to see where the wires to the bulb go in the back of the headlight.
