In this video, we show you how to remove and replace the headlight on this Buick Century as well as the headlight bulbs. No tools are needed.

Replacing the headlights bulbs and the headlights themselves, you can reach back here, but when you see how easy this is, there are two tabs right here, and all that you do is pull up on the tab and up on this tab. Then, you can kind of remove the tabs, set them here. The light pulls out and it disconnects from here. Now, you can access your bulb if that's what you need to do, or if your headlight's been wiped out by a rock or something like that, 1A Auto sells their replacement. It will be much clearer, brighter, and obviously re-installation is just as easy.

Plug it back in. You want the headlight into the fender. Push is back. Got to make sure these tabs come all the way through. They're in there, and then they push back in. Put your clip in, push it down. Back in, clip in, push down, and you're all set.
