Not sure what your working on but to replace a headlight assembly, you shouldn't have to remove fender. Please give more details of vehicle for confirmation.

How too remoove driver side fender 2005 envoy


once you have removed the headlight assembly and remove the bolt behind the headlight assembly, continue locating the 10mm bolts attaching the fender along the top side, along the bottom in front and behind of the tire, open the drivers side front door, look into the opening between the door hinges and with a flashlight and a long extension on your ratchet you will then remove the two bolts between the fender and door, one on top and one at the bottom. you also have to remove the retaining bolts that attach the inner fender liner to the fender.

How do i change the driver side headlight bulb on a 2000 Lexus ES300


  • Open the hood of the ES300 and prop it open.

    Look at the headlight assembly from the top down. Depending on your model year, there may be a plastic panel covering the top of the headlight assembly. If this is present, remove it by lifting all of the plastic clips around the edges and lifting it off.

    Locate the three bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place. Two of the bolts are in the left and right rear corners of the assembly, and the third is on the side bordering the outside edge of the car, screwed into the back of the fender panel. Remove all of these bolts with a small adjustable wrench. Though they appear to be designed to be removed with a screwdriver, the way they're arranged makes it almost impossible to remove them with one.

  • 4

    Slide the entire headlight assembly forward a few inches so that you can reach the back of it.

  • 5

    Unscrew the plastic bulb socket assembly. This is the large, round component located right in the middle of the back of the main assembly. Turn it about a quarter turn to the left and you can pull it away from the main assembly. If you're replacing both the bulb and the main assembly, see the next section on how to replace the bulb, then resume this process

    How do I replace headlight?


    Some one posted this on newbeetle.org.

    Quote....."

    1. Open the hood.

    2. Now look down into the front corner of the engine compartment to where the headlight is. You will see a black assembly tucked up in the fender.

    The whole headlight assembly is close to 8" long. Since the driver side light is more interesting we will do that one. Yes you can get the drivers die headlamp out without touching the battery. I replaced the driver's side low beam lamp without removing the battery.

    Before trying to do the next step of the black lever you must release the metal clamp flip the small coat hanger looking shaped like an M up this releases the metal strap around the headlight assembly bucket now press the button next to the lever the button has a crosshatch design on the small button about a half inch by quarter inch.

    You must find the button if you try to move the black lever up without pushing in the small button you will break the lever and then you will be off to VW to buy a new headlight bucket assembly. In my '99 Beetle there is a lever that sticks out of the headlamp assembly shield.

    Lifting up on the lever rotates a ring that unlocks two posts on the headlamp assembly. It can now slide straight out of the fender. The assembly rides on three tracks left side, right side and bottom.)



    3. There is a black metal strap and clasp around the assembly with a metal clip on it. The clip flips back and opens up. There is also a black plastic lever sticking out of the assembly.
    Next the clasp and metal strap you will notice the lever that expels the light assembly. Mine was curved indicating that you pull up on it. As you do so the lever slides you will see the headlight start to come out of the fender.



    4. Once the lever is up as far as it can go you can pull the headlight assembly out of the front of the fender carefully. This was a bit messy since the caulking on our 98 was starting to go and the dealership had put some goo around it to stop leaks I think. The light assembly in our case did take some coaxing to get it to slide out and we had to play with it for awhile, but it did finally come out

    .
    5. On the back you unplug the wires.


    6. There is a plastic cap that comes off and you can access the headlight bulbs

    7. After the housing is off, you will notice the lamp connector. There is a spring or hasp that keeps the lamp in the housing.


    8. We had to change the low beam lamp (the one on the top of the assembly), so once the clip was removed the lamp can be pulled out of the assembly..


    9. Once the lamp is pulled out you are almost done. The lamp is connected to the wires with a blade type connector. Just wiggle it from side to side to remove it. Take the new bulb (DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON THE NEW LAMP, if you do it will be ruined and you will be replacing it shortly). Once you placed the new lamp in, you can follow the instructions in the reverse order to put things back together.


    10. When you are totally done, before you hook the battery back up and totally button things up, try the new light out quickly to make sure its working. All done." Unquote.

    Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram


    On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
    should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
    headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
    for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
    the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
    hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

    I have to replace the ballast for the HID headlights on my 2004 XC70 volvo and it is under the headlight assembly. I just need assistance on how to remove the passenger side headlight assembly


    You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

    Driver Side turn Signal Bulb


    There's one more "hidden" bolt. Above and behind the corner of the headlamp, along the top ridge of the fender, there's a hole in the fender lip. Shine a flashlight down in there and you'll see the head of the third bolt. Remove that, and the headlight assembly will slide forward so you can change the bulb.
