Removing headlamp on a 97 Jeep CherokeeMan this one was a pain in the a$$....

I thought that I could do this using the answer from "How do you remove and replace a headlamp assembly - not the bulb - on a 94 Grand Cherokee?". However, the bottom screw that holds in the sidelight was unmovable and I couldn't get an Allen type screwdriver in between the indicator lens and the sidelight lens - but I have done it without removing the sidelight.

There are 3 ball and socket type joints, left, right & bottom, behind the unit. I had to give the assembly a really hard pull to get it out but once the joints separated it came out. I'm not sure if this is the right way but it worked for me.

NB.

1. I wasn't bothered if it broke coming out because I am replacing the whole unit, so if you don't want to break it I guess you'll have to be careful. My unit cracked, but as I said it was going in the bin anyway.

2. My lens had come off and been lost, so I was able to get hold of the unit by gripping inside and out. If your lens is on it will be more difficult.

3. IMPORTANT. Wear some heavy duty gloves because there are a lot of sharp bits on the unit, especially if it breaks it can be quite nasty.

How do you remove the headlamp assembly on a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

The headlamp assembly just snaps on and off. There are four attachments (one in each corner). Give the assembly a firm pull out, and it should pop on out. Additional Info: If your lens assembly is like mine then you'll need to pop the hood and remove the anchor screws - one on the top of the lens near the fender and the other is below the headlight lens near the center of the lens assembly. After the two screws are removed it simply pulls out.


How do you change the headlamp bulb in a 2003 Grand Prix?

Caution Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury: Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb. Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete. Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb. Properly dispose of the used bulb. Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children. Raise the hood. Remove the headlamp assembly bolts from the upper fascia support. Slide the headlamp assembly outward enough to release the headlamp bracket tabs from the slots in the upper fascia support. Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly. Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly.

This is not an easy one to answer without pictures. It takes a Phillups screwdriver, you will find 2 scews to pull out the turn signal assembly. Then your able to to reach in behind the headlamp assy and pull it out.
