You need to remove the headlight assembly. Pop the hood. There are four bolts. Two are right up front on the sill, and very easy to get to. One is down behind at the right and very hard to see. You'll need a T30 torx screwdriver with at least a 6" blade. The fourth one is the aiming screw, so take care with that, as you'll need to put it back close to where it was. The pros would turn the working headlight on, and mark the throw on the wall to make this easier. DON'T remove the two back bolts. They only need to be loosened. Once the back bolts are loose and the front ones are off, you can slide the whole assembly forward. You can disconnect the electrical at that point, and pull the whole unit all the way out, or you can reach around and do it in place. I recommend the former... Once you have access, there is a small clip holding the back access hatch to the light assembly. Open that up and take it off. Pull the electrical connector off the lamp you're replacing and push in-and-over the metal clip holding the light. The lamp is now free. Pop the new one in (it'll only fit in one orientation) and replace the clip and electrical. CAREFULLY replace the hatch, making sure the seal is tight and correct. Reverse the process. Be careful when sliding the assembly in and out to make sure you don't scratch the bumber paint (or better yet mask it off before you start). That's it. It is a 15-minute job, but you have to have the right tool (T30 screwdriver) and a bit of confidence.

What does the green dipped headlight with a line through mean?

I think what you are referring to is a "blackout" headlight used on military vehicles - mostly during WWII. The headlamp lens was covered in the same camouflage green as the rest of the vehicle, but there would be a horizontal slit to allow just enough light to shine through to help light the road, but not so much as to make the vehicle easy to spot -- particularly from the air. Nighttime bomb raids occurred a lot during WWII.

How do you change headlight lens on a 1992 ford crown Victoria?

I have a 95 and I believe the headlight housings will be swapped out in the same manor. There are plastic covers under the hood that protect the back side and wiring of the headlights. You must remove these. Then you will see 3 circular plastic pieces with bolt ends protruding from them which are used to adjust the headlight direction. They will have metal clips that hold the plastic pieces in place. They each have 2 holes which need to be spread apart, this will allow you to pull up on the clips and remove them. Now you can remove the headlight housings.

How do you change the headlight bulb on a kawasaki voyager Xii?

First remove the headlight cover that goes around the bulb. There are two phillips head screws on the bottom of the cover that allow for this. Next remove the four screws (use a 10 mm socket for this) holding the headlight in place. Pull the headlight assembly forward. Remove the plug at the base of the bulb. There is a clip holding the bulb in place. Press down on the end of the clip and it should pop up. The bulb should come out very easily after this. Install the new bulb being careful not to touch the glass with your bare fingers. Reassemble the unit in the opposite order it was disassembled.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1995 Pontiac Firebird?

Under the hood, there are round turning knobs that allow you to manually lift your headlights. Turn them all the way (I don't remember if it's clockwise or counter-clockwise) and you should see the headlight opening up. Once it's open, it should just be a matter of unscrewing the outside bracket (leave the inside bracket that's surrounding the headlight intact) and replacing the headlight. Replacing the headlight is not an easy thing to do but it's not real complicated. ed by a female!!
