Yes, loosen the retaining ring and remove the ring. The headlight is the whole bulb. Once you have the ring off, you can remove the headlight; pull it out far enough so you can get to the plug on the back of it. Disconnect the plug (just pull it straight back by the plug, not the wires). Take the bulb down you your local auto parts store and have them match up a new replacement. Install is just the reverse; connect the plug (you can test it now by turning on your lights) put the bulb back in (they do have a top and bottom, make sure to put it in with the TOP on top) put the ring around it (clamp on the bottom) and tighten the ring. Done.

I need instructions on how to change the headlamp bulbs on a 2005 grand marquis. Please help.


To remove first you want to remove the headlight door mounting screws and remove the headlight door. Then you want to remove the 4 retainer ring screws and remove the retainer ring from the headlight. Then you want to pull the headlight bulb forward and detach the wiring connector.

To install you first want to a
ttach the wiring connector to the headlight bulb and place the bulb in position, locating the bulb glass tabs in the positioning slots. Then you will attach the bulb retainer ring to the assembly with the retainer ring screws. Then you will install the headlight door and secure with the screws. Then you will check the headlight bulb aim and adjust as necessary

Let me know if this helps you.

How to replace the headlight on a 1987 chevy el camino


Check this GM Chevy Mid-Size Cars 1964-1988 procedure from Repair Guide...


Headlights - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
If some or all of the headlight bulbs being replaced still operate, refer to the headlight aiming procedure later in this section to ease checking or adjustment of the headlights after installation.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen and remove the retaining screws, then remove the headlight bezel from the front of the vehicle.
  3. On most models, the headlight bulb retaining ring is only held on by retaining screws. If so, remove the bulb retaining ring screws. These are the screws which hold the thin metal ring which holds the bulb against the adjusting plate. Do not touch the two headlight aiming screws, at the center of the top and side of the retaining ring (these screws will have different heads), or the headlight aim will have to be re-adjusted.

One way to identify the retaining ring screws is that they will be threaded through a lip on the outer edge of the retaining ring before threading through the adjusting plate. One the other hand, the adjustment screws are threaded through the adjustment plate and a spring loaded holder underneath it.

  1. Some later model vehicles will use a spring on the retaining ring. If so equipped, disengage the spring from the retaining ring, using a cotter pin removal tool, then remove the retaining ring screws.
  2. Pull the bulb and ring forward and then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb and remove the bulb from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Position the retaining ring over the bulb, then install the assembly to the adjusting plate. Secure using the retaining screws and, if applicable, the spring.
  3. Install and secure the headlight bezel.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
