DIY, change the headlight assembly on Jeep Grand Cherokee 1993-1998

Do it yourself, change the headlight assembly on your Jeep Grand Cherokee, made between the years 1993 and 1998. You will need a torx screwdriver for this repair and a new headlight assembly. The repair process is easy and should not take you more than 20 minutes.

     First of all, open the hood of your car and go to the headlight you wish to replace. You will need to loosen the screws that hold the side marker assembly first. We marked their position in the picture below. You wanna do that in order to have easier access to the main headlight which is only secured by two metal studs.

     After you use the torx screwdriver and remove the side marker assembly, using your bare hands, pull firmly from one side of the main headlight and then from the other, until the assembly pops out. It won’t come out entirely until you disconnect the electrical harnesses behind it, that power the bulbs, as you can see in the image below.

     At this point, in order to finish the repair, you should clean and grease the metal studs of the headlight, and install back the replacement assembly. In the end, secure the side marker with those two torx screws and that’s it. This is all you have to do, if you wish to change by yourself the headlight assembly on Jeep Grand Cherokee, manufactured between the years 1993 and 1998.
