I had one of these vans. They are fantastic for space, but commonly have electrical issues. The head lights are a single unit, and if you want to replace a bulb, the Whole unit has to be removed. There are several screws located on the top and bottom of the unit, that must come out. Then it slides out easily. Replace your bulb/s then reverse.
Dome light cover should snap off. If it is a solid unit then there is a couple of screw concealment caps covering up the screws to remove it. I would be that it is a snap on device though, some are pretty tough to get off.
Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link.. Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.
1) Turn off power to the unit 2) Open the lower oven door 3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out. 4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel. 5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom. 6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall) 7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6. 8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center 9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb. http://www.fixed4free.com/answers.php?id=51232
Sounds like a couple of possibilities. #1 bulb socket is corroded and/or incorrect bulb. Match the contacts of bulb base to socket base. Seen it dozens of times, if your socket has a single contact in base of unit make sure bulb has single contact and not double contact. You might also want to stop at an auto parts store and check for correct bulb. Many look alike but amperage varies greatly. Clean any grease or corrosion in and around socket also. Hope that helps...
Turn off at the wall and remove the light cover inside the oven by turning anticlockwise, this may be stiff, I use a well wrung out dishcloth. You can see the bulb, which should be screwed out of its holder with care, also care when replacing. a I screwed mine in too hard and snapped the holder, but my oven is 5 years old. Hope that helps
1. Essentially, open the oven door and remove the plastic vent strip between oven and microwave (4 screws). There will be 2 screws under that which secure the microwave unit to the frame. Remove those...
2. Open the microwave door and remove the plastic vent shield at the top (3 screws). At that point, the microwave unit will slide out from the frame as describe above. The light is to the rear of the large silver pad (I removed mine to facilitate reaching the light). If you look at the parts diagrams online, it will be obvious what to look for. I have the light out and sure enough, OSRAM 64405S.... Took me maybe 5 minutes to remove...
Instructions to change a headlight bulb on a chevy colorado or a GMC canyon :
Make sure you have plenty of time , if you rush you will have problems so go slow and do it right the first time.
> disconnect the parking light connections on the top of the parking lights .
> carefully remove the grill by sliding the four plastic tabs on the top of grill while gently pulling , then just pull the grill off being carefull not to pull to hard . there are two snap connectors behind the parking lamps and three more along the bottom of the grill.
> with a 10mm socket remove the two bolts that secure the headlights. slide the headlights forward .
> this will give you enough room to change the bulb. I removed the connection first. I also put a clean sock on one hand to help handle the bulb without touching the new bulb. trust me on the sock, it helps.
> line up the bulb prongs and rotate clockwise until you feel it snap. inspect the new bulb to insure it is properly installed and all three prongs on the bulb are now hidden. double check the bulb though the lens to made sure it is not cocked.
>when reinstalling the headlight take a good look first to notice the two tabs on the bottom of the light . the tabs go in first then hold the light up and tight while you reinstall the two 10mm bolts. double check this to make sure both tabs are in . do not overtighten the bolts. check the lights .
> use a flashlight to help align the grill push connectors snap in the bottom of the grill first then behind the parking lights then finally snap the four connectors along the top of the grill.
> Thats it !!! take your time and you will have no problem.
take care , Dave
Dave's method might work but I just changed the low beam headlamp bulb on my 2006 Colorado in less than one minute with no tools needed. A simple 1/3 turn of the bulb socket from the back, (to the side of the radiator) and the bulb was out in my hand. Detailed directions came with the 9006 GE Bulb.
2008 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Cab (without moon roof or rails): How to replace the map light bulbs. First, you'll need a "trim pad remover." It is a tool with a screwdriver handle and the metal part has a 'smooth' forked tongue (see Snap-on Stock#: A177A for picture). Go to the center counsel and "gingerly" work around he counsel and pull down at the same time. The counsil is held in by six snap in tongs. It should remove pretty easily. once down, you'll see where the bulbs are. Unscrew and replace. Now, just line up the tongs and gently bump or hit the pressure points (where the tongs are) and it should snap into place. It should take no more than five minutes, tops.
