To replace the headlight assembly on the 90 Caprice, you may need to remove the grille. You will need a quality Torx(r) screwdriver. Once the headlight assembly is out of the vehicle, the bulbs can be removed. The bulbs turn about 75 degrees counter clockwise. If the vehicle has Halogen bulbs, be careful not to touch the glass tubes with your bare fingers as the oils from your fingers can cause the bulbs to fail.

Open the hood, remove the two locks that hold the headlight assembly in place, with the two locks removed you can wiggle the headlight assembly out and gain access to the back side of the assembly to remove and replace the headlight bulb.

Look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a round sleeve where the wiring goes into the headlight. Twist this counterclockwise to turn the head light bulb assembly. Pull back on the assembly to remove it from the headlight casing. Replace with new headlight bulb.

Hi, You have to remove the entire headlight assembly to get to the bulb, which is located in the back of the assembly. There are three wing nuts that hold the assembly in, and those will have to be removed. Then remove the side signal assembly first, then the headlight assembly. I have provided a link that shows exactly how this is done and where these wing nuts are. Good Luck

1) open the hood. 2) Carefully remove the three screws holding the headlight assembly in place. In my case the screws were black. Be careful as they are screwed into plastic. 3) Carefully slide the headlight assembly out. At this point you can replace the headlight bulb, turn signal bulb, or the entire headlight assembly. To replace the headlight bulb turn the collar holding the bulb in counter clockwise. Pull the bulb out of the headlight assembly. Replace the bulb. Insert the bulb into the headlight assembly insert the collar and turn clockwise until it locks. 4) Carefully insert the headlight assembly back into place. 5) Replace the three screws removed in step 2 being carefull not to over tighten.

On older vehicles you replace the entire headlight. On the newer vehicles you just replace the bulb unless the headlight assembly is damaged.

The headlight deflectors are located in the headlight assembly. They can be difficult to remove and replace, because you have to feel your way around in the beginning.

there is 3 10 or llmm nuts on the back of the headlight assembly, then once that is removed there will be 4 torx screws that hold the headlight trim in place, once these are removed then bumper fillers can be installed.

To replace the headlight bulb in a Nissan Pulsar a person must first find the headlight assembly which is slightly behind the lamp housing. Once the headlight assembly is accessed, all an individual would have to do is loosen the bulb a half turn and the whole thing comes out, then replace with the new bulb using the reverse method.

the glass cover on the headlight is not servicable, they are glued during assembly. you have to replace the entire headlight globe or headlight assembly.

If you're removing the headlight assembly,you'll need to remove the turn signal light lenses,then the grill. From there you will see four bolts to each headlight assembly. It's pretty straight forward from there.

Are you asking how to replace the entire headlight assembly -OR- how to replace just the headlight bulb? Just the bulb.
