You have to remove the battery, then the frame holding the battery and the fuse box. After that you can remove the cover to access the bulbs. Its an annoying hassle just to replace the bulb.

Open Hood. Remove the cover from the headlight by prying up the keeper. Remove the metric 13 nuts holding the headlight in. Take out headlight and replace the bulb. Reinstall the headlight and reinstall headlight and cover.

Truck headlights can be found at your local auto supply store. Unscrew the cover for the old headlight, remove it and then remove the old headlight. You will need a screwdriver and possibly a wrench for this. Next, replace the broken headlight with the new one, and replace the headlight cover. Lastly, check to make sure the new headlight works.

The headlight is an assembly. To replace the headlight, you remove the bulb from the back side. It is a halogen bulb, so do not touch with bare hards before installing.

All you will need to change the bulb is a screwdriver and a new bulb. Remove the headlight cover using the screwdriver and remove the burnt out bulb. Once out, you can insert a new bulb into the slot and replace the headlight cover.

To replace a Fiat Stilo driver side headlight , you need to first remove the battery cover and turn the steering wheel to the right. After this you should remove the wheel arch and then the cap that is on the headlamp back. This will make the bulbs visible. You can then proceed to replace the headlight.

Consult the owner's manual. Then, open hood and look for the plastic (or metal) cover on the back of the headlight unit. You have to carefully remove this spring-loaded cover to reach the bolb. You can rotate and remove the cover; then you will have access to the bolb.

To replace the headlight bulb in an S type Jaguar, you will first have to remove the plastic cover across the top of the assembly. After moving the turn signal bulb assembly out of the way, you then remove the second plastic cover from behind the assembly and replace the bulb from there.

I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar with a broken headlight cover and was told by the dealership that I would have to get an entire new assembly. I have been looking for about 8 months and I have to tell you, they are almost impossible to find and very expensive. $225-$325 if you can find one. Good luck! Sealed unit, you have to replace the headlight, eBay has them often.

Not an easy task since you have to remove the Front Bumper Cover to get access to it. Once that's done, remove the electrical connectors, the screws and the Headlight Assembly.

You have to replace the entire headlight assembly not just the cover.

The headlight lense is one piece. The cover is not removeable. To remove the lense, remove the two screws on the top and pull the headlight forward.

With the hood open, remove the plastic cover the exposes the inside of the headlight. There are 3 clips to remove from the inside, plus the wire harness. The headlight just comes out from the out side then. You might have to replace some of the clips, only found at Ford, and about 7 bucks ea.

If you're talking about the headlight, the "lens cover" is not a separate part, you need to replace the whole headlight assembly.
