Replace Headlights[edit]

  • Pop the hood and go the to rear of the burned out headlight bulb. Lift the retaining clip and remove the covering panel. Then pull the headlight assembly back a few inches to reach the bulb.

  • Press the bulb slightly and twist it to the left to remove it from the socket.
  • Insert the new bulb by twisting it to the right to secure it in place.
  • Plug the cord back into the headlight assembly. Push the assembly back in place. Reattach the cover and close the hood.

Tips & Warnings[edit]

  • Wrap the burned out bulb in paper before disposing of it in the trash.
  • Apply the emergency brake before working on a car.
