DIY, change the headlight assembly on Oldsmobile Intrigue 1998-2002

Do it yourself, change the headlight assembly on your Oldsmobile Intrigue, the model manufactured between the years 1998 and 2002. This particular replacement won’t require tools, just another headlight assembly from your local auto parts shop and probably about 20 minutes of your time.

     The repair starts after you pop up and secure the hood. You will have to remove the two plastic tabs that hold the headlight assembly secured to the body of the car (see picture below). You should be able to do it very easily by hand.

     After you do it, the assembly will come right out. Behind it, you will discover an electrical harness that powers up the four light bulbs, as you can see in the image below. Unplug the harness and remove the assembly completely.

     At this point you can easily service the light bulbs. You just have to remove the rubber gaskets seen in the image below, in order to get access to the light bulbs’ sockets.

     You can then twist the sockets counterclockwise and make the desired replacement. The new headlight assembly can be installed easily into the body of the car, after you reconnect the harness behind it, of course and has to be secured with the two tabs afterwards. This is all you have to do if you wish to remove the headlight assembly on your Oldsmobile Intrigue, produced between 1998 and 2002.
