Why would both headlights on a 1978 Buick Skylark go out if one of the headlights is about six months old and you still have parking lights?

Check your charging system. Your alternator should put out less than 14.5 volts. Any more and it overcharges the batteries and burns out lights.

I replaced the tail lights on my friends 2001 jetta a few months ago. You do NOT remove the headlights or tail lights. The bulbs are replaced from the inside of the trunk or beneath the hood for the head lights. I don't have much time to get into details but just take a good look and you'll realize what you have to do. Real simple procedure! Good luck.
