Do not attempt to remove the housing. Attack from the underside.

Turn the wheel so that it points out. Pull back the thin black covering in the wheelwell part way. This is done by starting at the front of the car and part way up the wheelwell. You will need to remove two screws and one black snap button. (If the button breaks, you can get them at the dealership for pennies.) You should now have access to the bulb socket.

Entire process should take approximately 10 minutes.

How do you replace the headlight on an infinty J30?

Open the hood. Behind the headlight housing assembly is a wiring harness connected to a boot that screws into the back of the housing with a three-prong slot. Twist the boot until the three tabs align with the slots. Pull the boot out of the housing. DO NOT touch the new light bulb with you fingers (or you will damage it). To replace the entire unit: open the hood. On top of the headlight is a Phillips head screw next to the parking light. Remove the screw. Pull the side marker light forward and move it aside. Unbolt the three 10mm bolts inside the side-marker light area. Remove the bolt on the top of the headlight assembly. Pull the housing forward.

How do you remove a 1996 240sx headlight?

To remove the headlight housing (question is kind of vague, I have to assume this is what is being asked): Open hood & remove center grill. There are two bolts on each headlight housing on the inside, you will find them just behind where the grill was. Remove the two on the headlight housing you are trying to remove. Remove side marker light on the side you are removing the headlight from. You will find two nuts holding the headlight housing to the frame, remove them. Housing is now unbolted and can be slid out/off of the car.

How do you change the park light bulb in the side marker panel of a 1998 Cadillac DeVille?

Open the hood, look for the tab right above the headlight housing that says pull up tab to service headlight, under that tab you will see the headlight adjustment screws. Look for a star screw that is right next to the side marker light, remove that screw which is about 4in long and the marker should come out front first.

How do you replace the headlight for a '97 Cadillac SLS?

to change the headlight assembly lift the cover panel in front of engine compartment. there are 3 sections all together the outside secs are for access to headlamps. im guessing that you are replacing the whole light assy. there are 2 10 millimeter bolts on top just behind lamp housing. remove these and housing will be free. to remove the housing you need to release the side marker lamp housing. there is a wire spring clamp in frt inside. pull it forward and in and marker will release. lift headlamps up slightly and then work them around til you can remove them. unplug headlight bulbs and unscrew blinker bulb. to put back in make sure you get the plastic tabs on back of housing in their slots or the housing will bounce around on you. also make sure you clean halogen bulbs with alcohol swabs so there is nothing on them or they might blow. do not touch bulb after cleaning hope this does the trick for you THEKINGCZAR

How do you change out the headlights on a 20023 Dodge Durango?

The headlight and turn signal are mounted on one housing held on by three bolts and a ball joint type snap.The lower two bolts can best be accessed by first removing the amber turn signal, this is done by removing the screw located between the white headlight lens and the amber turn signal lens where the headlight and side marker are split.Pull the amber lens straight forward to remove it.Now you can see the lower two bolts that hold the headlight assembly in, one inboard and one outboard.The third bolt is inboard of the light and to the top, you'll have to push the rubber seal to the side to get to it.Once all three bolts are removed you'll have to pull forward on the whole bracket and get the ball joint to pop out of its housing. Its easier and cheaper to buy the whole unit (Housing,turn signal,headlight)then it is to try and take the headlight off the housing and just replace it. Bulb replacement for the headlight is through the engine compartment.Turn signal bulbs are replaced by removing the turn signal housing as described above.

How do you change the headlight on a 94 Toyota truck?

Pull the side marker housing with the 2 screws (It pulls the same direction as the screws, just stick a screw driver between the side housing and the end of the grill around the headlight and gently pry, it seems like it will break, but it will come). Then pull the little black tabs down on bottom and up on top as you gently pull the grill out. You will not have to take the grill completely off, just undo those tabs to about the middle. This should give you enough room to move the grill around and take out the 4 screws holding the headlight in the housing. Put the new light in, screw the 4 screws, plug in the grill, and reinstall the side marker housing and you are done. Hope that helps.

Do you mean the side marker light next to the headlight? Open the hood. On top of the headlight assembly, there's a screw with a Phillip-head pattern, next to the marker light. Remove the screw. Pull the marker light forward to remove it.

How do you change park light bulb in a 2000 corvette?

I had the same problem and the owners manual said to take to the dealer. For a burnt out bulb? I looked on the internet and found several methods, this is the one I felt most comfortable with and worked for me. OK, open the hood, manually raise the headlight on the side the marker light is on, by cranking the knob on the headlight motor. Remove the screws for the headlight shroud and remove. Loosen the jam nut for the hood support just enough so you can unscrew it and remove, then you are able to reach down in an squeeze the clip and turn the socket at the back of the marker light and separate it from the housing, and replace the bulb. The difficult part is getting the socket back in the housing. You can see all this until you stick your arm in there. Once you have your arm in there it is all done by feel.

How do you remove the headlights side marker and turn signal lights from a 1991 Ford Mustang?

I have a 93 stang and have replaced all the front lights. I find it easiest to take the headlight out first. Unplug the headlight bulb from the housing and move it out of the way. The headlight is held in place by three bolts. 7/16" I think. Once you get the headlight out I find it easier to reach the bolts for the other lights. The side marker and turn signal lights each have two bolts holding them in. . Hey Alan==They all have screws holding them in. Find them and remove them. GoodluckJoe
