How to change the headlights?


Hi there, here are some few tips to assist you:
  • Remove the center cover and the screws attached to the radiator grille. Pull the radiator grille out of the engine compartment and set it on the ground.
  • Use a T30 Torx screwdriver to remove the two primary retaining screws from the headlight assembly. Make a note of each screw's original location--they're not interchangeable, so you'll need to put them back in the right slot to reassemble the light.
  • Draw the headlamp assembly away from the car and then disconnect the electrical wiring connector.
  • Release the wire clip on the back of the headlight assembly and remove the cover.
  • Disconnect headlight electrical connector and turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the assembly. Install the new bulb, replace the cover and reattach the electrical connector.
  • Reconnect the headlight assembly wiring connector. Test the new bulb to make sure it works before replacing the retaining screws and radiator grille.
Hope these help. Please rate me if they do.

    1. Disconnect the negative (−) battery cable.
    2. Open the hood and disconnect the headlight bulb electrical connector.
    3. There are two possible designs. For the first design, turn the bulb to remove it from the housing, for the second unscrew the retaining cap and remove the bulb.

      WARNING Do not touch the glass portion of the halogen bulb. Any contamination on the bulb may cause the bulb to burst when turned ON. If the bulb is contaminated, clean the glass portion with rubbing alcohol.

    4. Hold the bulb by the plastic portion only. Install the bulb and connect the wiring harness. Make sure the sealing ring is in place.

    Replacing 2001 Hyundai XG300 headlight, how difficult?


    1bd6158.jpg Here's a photo - remove cap, disconnect connector to bulb, move bulb retainer out of the way & extract bulb - installation of new bulb is in reverse order.
    If you want to replace the entire ASSEMBLY, there are three (3) 10mm bolts holding the assy. Remove them, then slide assy forward to access connectors - disconnect them.

    How to change headlights on 2004 ram1500


    If you are replacing the headlight bulbs, rotate the bulb retaining lock ring counter-clockwise, pull retainer out of headlight housing and disconnect electrical connector. On the drivers side, you have to remove the fuse and relay box screws and move the box to the side to access the headlight bulb. If you are replacing the headlight housings, there is a push pin and 2 screws on the inside, behind the hood and one screw on the outside at the bottom. Remove these and pull the housing out enough to remove the bulb retainers.
