How do you replace the fog light bulbs on a 2002 Pontiac Firebird?
I suspect they are like my 1999 Firebird. You have to go up from underneath. There is a panel that opens and then you have to reach in through that panel. When you feel the rear, twist it slightly and it will unlock and come loose. Be careful not to handle the new bulb. Oils from the fingers will mess it up.
You can also take the plastic cover off of your high and low beams and each down through the opening to get to the fog lamp. You really need a strong arm to do it this way, however.
I replaced mine OEM lamps (with sylvania silverstar bulb # 880ST) from the underneath on my 2000 firebird. After I got the panel open (2 fasteners) and twisted to remove the lamp holder, I found that the wiring was just barely long enough to get the holder clear of the opening. I did not jack the car up, and I suspect that it would make this much easier. USE JACKSTANDS! Also when reinstalling the new bulb I found it easy if I looked through the the lamp lens from the front. The socket is keyed so the lamp holder only goes in one way and about a quarter turn is all that is needed to lock the holder into place. Finally, DO NOT remove the screw at the top/front of the fog light lens. This is apparently an adjustment and if you remove this screw (as I did) then the spring which holds tension on the lamp assembly will fall out. It took more time to find and reinstall this spring and screw than it did to repalce both of the lamps!
How do you replace the rear turn signal and brake light bulbs on a 1999 Pontiac grand prix after you pull the lining of the trunk away from the back of the trunk?
Do you mean the tail light assembly, or the bulbs? Bulbs are easy. I can't speak exactly to the 2002 model, but on most of them, from inside the trunk, you peel the carpet that covers the tail lights back, unscrew the bulb holders from the tail light assemblies, remove the dead bulbs, replace the dead bulbs, screw the bulb holders back in, reposition the carpet and you're done. Tail light assemblies are a little…
The bulbs on this make and model car are very sensitive to skin oils from your fingers. Please when installing these light bulbs use a pair or dish washing or rubber gloves. If you have a small container of alcohol use a small amount to clean the bulb and then install the bulb using gloves. Hope this helps Phil
Why is it when you press the acceleration pedal on a 1998 Pontiac firebird 3.8 strats shaking and rattles?
I have a 97 Firebird V6... and when replacing headlights I just turn them on.... and with a Phillips screwdirver remove the plastic housing that surrounds the light. Then simply pull the old light out and replace it with a new one. It is very painless. Then replace the plastic housing and you are good to go!
I've got a '91 firebird formula. Order the lights from a part store, got mine from discount auto. put the headlights up, unscrew and remove the headlight casings unplug the old lights and put in the new - replace the casings. if you can't do it yourself, they're likely to do it for free at discount auto. and if you feel your headlights are aimed right, take it to a mechanic.
Easy to do! First, turn on your lights to the first notch so you can unscrew the black plastic light housing. Then simply pull out the old light and replace with new. I suggest doing both at the same time. Because they won't be the same brightness. If you need to replace your fog light bulbs or turn signal bulbs and have a small enough arm and hand, you can stick your hand down by…
