Tap and die is probably your only answer. Also, of the anchor nut, the little clip which has a hole in it for the screw, is worn, you will have to get a new one, but those are very cheap.

Headlight not working on 1979 dodgr intrepid replaced the headlight switch

You mean a 97 model, right ?
I'm looking at 1998 wiring diagrams because I don't have a good set for a 97 but it should be the same.
Its somewhat complicated, so you may need to get a used shop manual to get all of the wiring diagrams to be able to check the circuits.
There is a park lamp relay in the circuit and the body computer is involved too.
There are both high and low beam relays used after the dimmer switch. And each circuit has its own fuse.
The headlight switch generally controls the relays rather than powering the lights directly.

Where is adjustment screw for headlights on 2008 impalla

Vic, the adjuster is either a allen key, torx, or #2 philips type bolt found close to the bolt that is holding headlight in place on inner fender rail/flange. I believe on the Impala the only adjustment is up and down of the light beam. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How I adjust headlights on a 1999 grand am?

  • Determine the type of headlights you have on your car. You can only adjust composite headlights if they bolt to adjuster plates. For dual headlights, look on the headlights for four adjustment screws per side. Sealed beam units have interior adjustment screws under the hood.
  • 4 Locate your adjustment screws. On sealed beam units, you may need to remove the trim screws and pull the trim off to reveal the Torx screws.
  • 5 Begin with you headlights turned on to the low beam. Use a Torx screwdriver for sealed beam units and Phillips screwdrivers for other types of headlights.

    VW SHARAN 02. i need to remove the headlights so i can straighten the cap covering the bulb and also the light tilter is not working ( the switch does not seem to tilt the beams when i turn the dial, this...

    1. In order to remove the headlights, you need to remove the front bumper cover.
    2. Place the front of the car on jack stands.
    3. You will need to remove the screws on each side in the fender wells on the back side that screw into the bumper. these are torx screw head type.
    4. On the underside of the car there are larger torx type screws that attach the bumper cover to the body. They need to be removed.
    5. You will need to remove the grill that has the VW symbol on it. Under the grill there is more torx type screws to remove. Inorder to remove the grill you need to get the hood release rod off as well.
    6. With the bumper cover removed, there are four torx type screws holding the headlight in place. Once removed you can unplug them and the head light is off.

    97 Sable, need to replace the turn signal switch. How tough of a repair is this?

    quite easy really. remove the lower shroud off the steering column and you will see the multi function switch pretty accessible on the left side. the 2 screws that hold these in are torx if i remember right. pry the upper shroud and insert a fixed torx driver(i believe 20)(like those you get from craftsmen). unplug the 2 or 3 connections and reinstall the new switch. where the fixed torx driver comes in handy is that it is skinny and will go into the area easier. no other tricks. good luck.

    Need to change left front turn single whole ***. come out?

    1. Go to the front of the car and open the hood. Locate the two screws that mount the headlight assembly to the front of the vehicle. The screws are on top of the assembly at both ends. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws. Pull the headlight assembly straight off of the Intrepid.
    2. Locate the turn signal electrical connector at the outer side of the headlight assembly. There is a thick wire coming out of it. Turn the electrical bulb socket counterclockwise to take it out of the headlight assembly.
    3. Pull the turn signal bulb straight out of the electrical socket.
    4. Push in a new turn signal bulb. Reinstall the electrical socket with the new bulb in it to the headlight assembly. Turn the socket clockwise until it is tight. Push the headlight assembly back in place on the car and use and screwdriver to put the mounting screws back in.

    Headlights need adjusting

    The headlights will have small rods or adjusting screws located near the headlight mounting points. Will probably need a torx socket or screwdriver to adjust. Torx is a 6 point type screw.
