Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb's socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fixture.

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

you have to unscrew bulb from back of headlight ( twist then pull out), then the bulb is replaced and do the exact opposite to replace. There may be a small clip you can use a flat head screwdriver to help with this. Hope this helps.

Are you changing the headlight bulb, or the entire headlight assembly? Either way it would be much easier and time saving to go to your local autoparts store and pick up a HAYNES guide which has complete instructions and pictures.

First, if the headlight is dimmed check the fuses first. And all that is holding the light in is a few screws

It is on the driver side, behind headlight.

I believe you have to go in underneath the hood and unplug the headlight from behind, that's about all i know. Yeah if you open up the hood there will be a plug that is in the back of the headlight. To remove it all you have to do is twist it to the right or left I'm not sure but it just pull right out after you do that.

Looking at the headlight assembly, on the side of the burnt out directional bulb, look at the back of the headlight. To the side of the headlight adjusters, on the side wall of the wheel well you will see a 10 mm nut. That nut is the only thing holding the directional assembly on. Take that nut off and jiggle the assembly. It will pull out to the side. Replace bulb and reinsert the assembly. Be carefull that you get the plastic bayonet shaft into the correct hole along with the stud that has the nut on it. tata G
