How to change a headlight in a 1998 Dodge Neon?

I just removed both in my 1995 Neon to replace the gaskets. There are 6 bolts (all 10mm) that hold each headlight assembly to the car body: 2 on top that need to be completely removed 2 inside the inner grill that only need to be loosened 1 at the grill that needs to be removed 1 between the headlight assembly and bumper/fender. To get at this bolt, you have to work a 10mm box wrench or ratchet from underneath the car behind the bumper. There is not much room to turn the wrench so it does take a while.

How do you remove the headlight assembly on a 1992 Mazda mx3?

There is a bolt behind the bumper (next to the horn) which has to be removed. You need to partially remove the bumper on the side you're working on to get to it. I found that with a rachet spanner, it was possible to bend the bumper back a bit to get to it. I didn't replace the bolt when I fitted the new headlamp!! Other than that, remove the obvious bolts that you can see when the bonnet's open and the lamp connections...

The horn assembly is behind the front bumper. The horn push is in the centre of the steering wheel towards the bottom spoke.

So unless you have a good manual and understand the process involved, it is best taken to a garage.

How do you remove the headlight housing froma 1990 acura integra GS and you mean the ENTIRE headlight not just the bulb?

In order to remove the headlight assembly, you must remove the bumper (which is easier than it sounds and will only take about ten minutes or less). This will also save you time and aggravasion. The reason the bumper must be removed is that there are two brackets underneath the headlight assembly that are very hard to get to without this step. To remove the bumper: 1) remove the two screws from each of the front parking lights, 2) remove the connectors to the parking light assemblies, 3) remove two screws in each wheel well (forward area), 4) remove two 10mm bolts underneath the middle, front of the bumper, 5) remove three large head screws from the top middle of the bumper (in front of the hood latch), 6) hold the bumper and remove the two 11mm bolts from behind the parking lights - the bumper will drop after the bolts are out. There are five 10mm bolts holding the assembly onto the car. To remove the headlight assembly. remove the top three 10mm bolts from the top black brackets. Remove the bolt from the outside bottom part of the headlight assembly and the bolt under the assembly. The two bolts on bottom are held in with brackets that can be loosened/adjusted to remove or install this assembly. To disconnect the side marker light assembly from the headlight assembly, loosen a screw (looks like an adjustment screw) and remove the lens. Two screws hold the two assemblies together.

How do you replace the headlight assembly located on a 1993 Acura Integra?

First, you'll need to remove the front bumper. To do this, take off the bolts underneath the front part of the bumper. Remove the bumper turn signals to access the two bolts per side that hold the bumper on the car. Support the bumper by putting something underneath it. Then get a stubby Phillips screwdriver and remove the two screws per side at the end of the bumper (in the wheel well). Bumper should come off. Remove the headlight assembly by diconnecting the headlight sockets, remove the 10mm bolts above each headlight assembly. Remove the 10mm bolts below the headlight assembly. Done.
