It just turns counterclockwise to come off. Sometimes it is very hard to turn them. If you have a strap wrench you could try that.

Where is the lightbulb In the oven and how do I change it?

Hard to give you exact location with brand or model number but here is what you look for. Open the oven door and with a flashlight look over the top and back wall of the inside liner. The light bulb is usually located behind a clear glass round cover. The cover may have a wire retainer across the middle of it to hold the glass. If it does, just flip or push the wire to the side and the glass cover will come loose. Unscrew bulb to replace. If no wire retainer, then there could be a metal plate with screws holding the glass in place. last type would be that the glass itself unscrews to get to the bulb.

How to change primer blub on craftsman mini tiller?

I suppose this is on the 4-stroke mini tiller. There is a circular retaining washer with "tangs" on it in the bulb housing area. Clean the area well and you will see it. It is black probably. Use a very small screwdriver and reach in and pry it out in a few different spots and it will pull free and so will the bulb. Insert the new bulb and the the retaining washer making sure the tangs on it are all nice and flat. Press it back into place with the same small screwdriver being very careful not to puncture or tear the new bulb.

How to take out and replace headlight bulbson 2002 passat

here are instructions from
  1. Open the hood and if equipped with a rubber access cover, remove the cover over the back of the headlight assembly, and then disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb.
  2. If a rubber seal/cover is mounted around the bulb, disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb, and then remove the rubber seal/cover.
  3. Once the electrical connector has been disconnected, squeeze the ends of the retaining bracket inward, then pivot the retainer away from the rear of the headlight assembly.
  4. Grasp the bulb securely and remove, noting the location of the alignment tabs for installation. Allow the bulb to cool before removing it from the headlight assembly.
NOTE Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb. This will shorten the life of the bulb.


Fig. On some models, a rubber cover is removed to access the bulb-1.8L Passat model shown


Fig. Once the cover is removed the wiring can be accessed and disconnected-1.8L Passat model shown


Fig. The bulb is retained by metal bracket. The ends are squeezed toward one another to release them from their retainers-1.8L Passat shown

To install:

NOTE Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb. This will shorten the life of the bulb.

  1. Install the new bulb into the headlight housing and squeeze the ends of the retaining bracket inward while pivoting the retainer toward the rear of the headlight assembly. Release the retaining bracket making sure it is fully seated in its retainer.
  2. The balance of assembly is in reverse order of removal.

I cant get my headlight bulb back in

the CR-V uses a bulb with a small tab, typically facing up, remove the runner cover, plastic cover, retaining wire... use a small mirror to locate which direction the tab should be facing.
install the bulb while holding the retaining wire out of the way. once the bulb is in install the retaining wire carefully... check the bulb position by looking in the front of the headlamp. it should be level.
replace the plastic cover, then struggle with the rubber cover... :-) install the connector.

Replace the bulb in the map/dome/courtesy light

The tear-drop shaped white translucent plastic covers are removable.
Insert a flat tip screwdriver between the inside straight edge of the cover and the console near the oval indentation at the round end of the cover.
Be careful of plastic tab at the round end of the plastic cover.
Gently pry the plastic away and down from the console.
I found that the bulb 578 was the wrong bulb.

Low beam bulb on 2003 X-type

Hi Rod

Open the hood, remove the plastic dome cover, and then the bulb connections, un clip the bulb retainer, extract the bulb, and check with the new one that its same.
No fingers on new bulb or it will pop when you switch on.
Fit new bulb and retaining clip, refit wires, test it, then fit plastic cover.
Good Luck !
This is what it looks like under hood !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated Thank you !

Replacing the headlight bulbs on 2005 Ranger

Having just purchased a 2002 Ford Focus I found that the passenger side headlight had gone. Stumbled accross this thread and thought "looks like a pain".
Popped to Halfords and picked up a H1 bulb, went home and had a look under the bonnet.
Armed with just a screwdriver I managed to change the bulb within 10 mins. Flicked the headlight cover off using the screwdriver for a bit of leverage. Unpluged the headlight and flicked off the retaining clip. Removed the bulb.
Fitting was even easier - Put bulb in place, clip the retaining clip in place, plug in and replace cover.
Job done within 10 minutes with no prior experience of Fords.
Hope it helps
IMPORTANT!!! The retaining clip does NOT just flick off. Tried that and broke the plastic stop that holds the retainer clip and allows it to apply tension to the bulb! The retainer wire is held in place on the bottom by a screw and clip on the bottom and is locked into a plastic clip on top. To remove the wire, push the wire down and towards the passenger side of the car, it will dislodge and you can then lower it to remove the bulb. Once the bulb has been changed, you want to replace the wire the same way to protect the plastic clip. I don't know what I will do about the plastic clip now, the retaining wire has no tension and I'm afraid the bulb will not remain seated properly. However, knowing what I know now, I agree with the above answer: Done in 10 minutes without prior experience with Fords.
=== Just finished doing this. A small mirror and a flashlight make this job simple. It's very easy to do once you can see the top of the clip.
small mirror and flashlight are essential, look at the way the retaining wire seats before you unclip it. flat side of the bulb houseing sits at the bottom of the access hole. retaining wire clips bottom to top. I had a hard time with seating the new bulb and had to figure out the retaining wire clipped from bottom to top because I didn't look at it before I unclipped it. obviously fords designed this for ease of manufacter with very little regard to the average layman who would do the replacing.
