Question about 2004 Toyota Previa

Open Question

Previa 2004 headlight can't get the bulb out

I can't get my hands into the space to pull out the headlight bulb. Is there a trick to getting it out? The space is tiny, and I can not get the leverage to press in the lock button, let alone pull out the cable. Am I doing something wrong?

SOURCE: HOW TO REPLACE A HEADLIGHT BULB ON A TOYOTA PREVIA

Replacing a headlight bulb for Toyota Previa. Quite simple. Open the hood. Look for the black plastic coupling or ring on the backside of the headlight. Grasp and turn counterclockwise (i believe it will be about a quarter turn). pull the socket out, then replace the bulb. I believe it is code #9004. Strongly recommend replacing both headlights at the same time.


Good luck

Headlight for 2004 trail blazer


If it's just a bulb replacement open the hood and with one hand push in on the headlight, with the other hand inside, pull up on the white plastic retaining clip. This will release the bulb. Pull it out forward, then replace with new bulb (be careful not to touch the new bulb, oil from the hands can cause bulb to burst.)

If you need to replace the whole headlight assembly I would try buying used for a better price.

I had the same issue with the cheaper bulbs. Sylvania sent me some higher end bulbs and have had no issue for years. (I hope that saying that will not bring on a burn-out;)

How to change headlight on 2000 galant


  • 1
    Place the Mitsubishi on a flat service in park. Set the parking brake before continuing.

  • 2Open the Galant's hood and locate the headlight cover -- roughly 3-inch wide circular piece of plastic -- behind the headlight bulb intended for replacement. Turn this cover clockwise to unlock it and pull it from the headlight assembly, exposing the headlight socket below it.


    3

    Hold the rear of the headlight socket and turn it counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the headlight socket and bulb from the headlight assembly.


    4

    Grab the bulb and pull it from the socket with a slight wiggling motion.


    5

    Pick up the new 9003 headlight bulb using a clean, lint-free cloth and line up its prong with the slots in the socket. Never tough the bulb with your bare hands, as the oils left by your hands can cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.


    6

    Slide the socket and new bulb into the headlight assembly and turn the socket clockwise to lock it into place.


    7

    Place the plastic cover behind the bulb and turn it counterclockwise to lock it into place.


    8

    Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the headlight bulb on the other side of the Galant, if needed.


    9Close the Galant's hood.

    How do i change low beem head light


    Go to Autozone, they will do it for free at most stores.

    Otherwise, the method is pretty straight foreward. You will have to remove a small plastic access pannel over the headlight.
    Under there, in a space designed for a small child's hand, you will see a black collar at the base of the wires running into the headlight. You need to rotate that counter clockwise about a third of a turn, and slide it back along the wires. Pull gently on the connector those wires go to, and do not pull it by the wires themselves. there is an O-ring holding the bulb in the housing. Once you have it out of the housing, there is a small catch that is pretty obvious. You will need to pry that catch up slightly to get the bulb out of the socket on the end of the wires. Reverse the steps to reinstall the bulb. Never touch the glass part of the bulb. The oil from your fingers will create a hot spot on the bulb when it is on, and cause it to crack in a matter of days.

    REPLACEMENT OF [LOW BEAM] HALOGEN BULB IN 2004 Buick LeSabre


    I just Replaced a Low Beam Light bulb on a 2005 Buick La Sabre.

    If You use a Metric socket and Remove the Two Silver bolts Attaching the headlight Assemble onto the metal surrounding the the lamp assembly it comes out to the front. This makes it much easier to access the bulb. Twist it counerclockwise & it comes out by pulling gently on the bulb. Then by realeasing a tab that is the socket holder bulb can be removed & replaced with a New #9006 low beam halogen light bulb. Wrap a Paper towel around the bulb & do NOT touch it with your bare hand as this wiil ruin a halogen bulb,
