Is there an easy way to release the springs holding the headlight bulbs on a 1996 Dodge Avenger 4-cylinder or and easier way to change the bulbs entirely?

Take another look at the assembly. You do not need to release the springs in order to replace the bulbs.

After you take the headlight out, remove the metal clips holding the lens on. The lens has to be pried off because there is silicone there to keep it together

Remove the screws holding the headlight assembly. The headlight socket twists counterclockwise to remove, and the headlight unplugs from the socket.

Open the bonnet. Remove the grill. Remove the screws holding the headlight in. Carefully pull the headlight out. Remove the cap on the rear of the headlight.

No! The headlight adjustment is out of whack or you did a hit and run that you forgot about that bent some things holding the headlight.

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.

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

It depends entirely on what reason they are 'holding' it.

You need to remove the grill and then the headlight assemblies. I had to remove the battery as well to get at the last bolt for the headlight assembly. There are about 6 bolts and 4 preasure clips holding the grill on.

You have to remove the headlight assembly to get to it. Google "how to change a VW New Beetle headlight bulb" and you can find how-tos with pictures, which is helpful here because one of the bolts holding it in is nearly inaccessible.

Remove the indicators to access the side bolt holding the headlight then remove the two top bolts, slacken the nut accessed through the hole at the inner edge of the headlight. this should release the headlight enough to disconnect any wiring and then the headlight is free.

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.

if you look down at the top of the headlight assm with the hood open,at the rear of the headlight assm you will see two long clips holding in the headlight assm. they run top to bottom. you have to pull these clips up and release them from the headlight assm. now pull out the whole assm and you will be able to access the bulb.

If just the bulb then there is lots of space you can just unscew and replace if entire headlight then unscrew the holding bolts and pull out. Then replace with new assembly.

The whole headlight on these 03 silverado is not that hard to take it out. When you pop the hood open as you look on the headlight there should a long piece of tube metal that is holding the headlight onto your car. As I recall there shouldn't be any screws or bolts holding the headlights. That is for headlights, not "Daytime Running Lights". Still looking for answer!

There are two bolts holding the unit to the vehicle. Open the hood, look down on the headlight unit, and you will see the two bolt heads. Remove the two bolts, one will be long the other short. Then pull the headlight unit from the car. You will need to disconnect the the headlight wiring if you are benching the unit.
