Lt. headlight low beam wont work after replacing the bulb.


I assume it didn't work before you changed the bulb either. You'll have to check for voltage at the bulb socket when the low beam headlights are turned on. If there is none you'll have to trace the wire back to where it splits from the right low beam headlight. If there is voltage there you have a problem with the new bulb.

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!!!

How to install a headlight


Locate the headlight bulb in the engine compartment, in the rear of the headlight assembly. It has a wiring harness connector attached to it.

Remove the wiring harness connector from the bulb. Release the locking tab on the connector and pull it off the bulb. Lay it aside

Locate the locking ring on the back of the headlight assembly. Turn the lock ring 1/8 of a turn counterclockwise to release the lock from the headlight assembly. Remove the lock ring and set it in a safe place.Remove the headlight bulb from the headlight assembly, pulling it straight back toward the engine. Discard the old bulb, unless you are reusing the bulbs in the Jeep.Insert a new bulb into the headlight assembly. (Be careful not to touch the glass when handling the bulb. The oils from your hands can cause it to overheat and shatter.)Install the headlight lock ring onto the headlight assembly and turn it clockwise 1/8 of a turn to lock the bulb into the assembly. Connect the wiring harness connector to the new bulb, ensuring that it seats completely on the bulb.Move to the opposite headlight and repeat the process to replace the second bulb. Turn on the lights to verify they are working correctly.

Need to replace headlight lens on a 1996 dodge avenger


Usually, one has to get the entire headlight assembly to replace the lens.
Is it cracked?
If it is just faded, try some anti-haze polish for headlights. This can save you some money compared to restoring the headlamp by replacing the assembly (which may be available from a salvage yard).

itself. Whenever handling a halogen bulb, ALWAYS follow these precautions:

  • Turn the headlight switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before
    changing it. Leave the switch OFF until the change is complete.
  • ALWAYS wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
  • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
  • DO NOT drop or scratch the bulb.
  • Keep dirt and moisture away from the bulb.
  • Place the used bulb in the new bulb's package and dispose of it properly.

How do i remove the headlights and install new ones


I am not familar with your specific car but here are some general guidelines. There are two primary headlight systems. The first is a seal beam unit and the second is a headlight bulb. For the seal beam unit you have to remove the outside trim. There are usually a couple of screw holding the trim in place. Do not confuse this with the headlight alignment or adjustment screws. Once the trim is removed the headlight can be pulled out and then unplugged. Reverse the process to install. To replace a headlight bulb you open the hood . On the back side behine the headlight there should be a cap or plug with a couple of wires running thru it. You twist or pop this off and should then be able to pull the headlight bulb out. Pull the bulb from the plug connector. Holding the new plug with a clean lint free cloth (don't handle the bulb with your bare hands as it will cause it to burn out early), install the bulb in the plug. reverse to install
