just did my 99's, remove the two screws-nothing else- then it wiggle out.

Ok, here's the start for this one. Reference is yesterday's frustrating experience. My initial conclusions are to buy a manual or take it to the dealer. I wouldn't want to take it to anyone who has no experience with it. Our's is a 2005. Tried to replace the left front yesterday. The retainer ring was so tight I had to place a long stem scredriver blade against it and hit the handle. Got the ring off and next challenge was the retaining latch holding the electrical connector on the bulb. With the screwdriver I was able to pry it up enough to free the bulb but the only pivot point is painted so use a cloth to protect the paint. I got the bulb out of the housing but there was no way to get it out. 4 electrical connectors were in the way and their latches would not even move. I don't know what they are and didn't want to mess with them. Next attempt was to remove the whole housing. Two silver gray screws on top were easy to remove. The one to the center of the car is about 6-8 inches long, the other about 3. But the fascia holds the assembly in. Tried levering it down but the corners of the headlight housing wouldn't clear it. Looks like the fascia has to be loosened. One note of good news is that I finally found the battery---underneath all of that. Ford headlight R/R never looked so easy.

How do you change the headlight bulb on a 1998 dodge stratus?

If you are referring to the main headlight lamp, you cannot change it. You must buy the complete headlight assembly which is a self-contained unit that cannot be opened. Unscrew 2 holding screws, unplug the unit and slide it out. Then slide the new unit in, connect the plugs and tighten the holding screws. Dodge sells this assembly for about $100 or more but, try calling a local car junkyard that sells auto parts and see if they have or can get one. They are very resourceful. I did this and it only cost me $50. The ironic thing is I have a 98 stratus but the assembly came from a 99 one, so, in effect I have a headlight that is newer than the one that did not break.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a Toyota Corolla?

Best answer I've found, in my search for the same answer is that you have to remove the headlight assembly to get access to the bulb (thanks Toyota, for making this easy! I didn't expect it to be harder to do this simple task on a Toyota than of my Dodge Caravan for God's sake!) You have to remove the headlight assembly mounting screws and remove the headlight assembly. Remove the power cable by squeezing the lock clip to release the cable, then release the bulb from the headlight assembly. Reverse process for the new bulb. I've only read how to do this - not done it on my own yet, so I expect to learn (and be frustrated) in my own replacement efforts later today. Hope this helps.
