How do I replace the headlamp or bulb in a 2005 Meridian? I have crawled underneath the MH but cannot reach to release the bulb. Does the front headlight cover come off?

Thanks for the suggestion. The wiring and a metal frame behind the lights are keeping me from getting to the bulbs.

This is a picture of the headlight, does anyone know how to find out what brand it is and if there is a diagram or picture of the back side showing how to replace the bulb? what if you had to replace the whole unit because a rock broke it?

littlebaler1,

I just did mine. If you open the generator compartment, and look on the side of the metal headlight bracket, you will see two nuts and two phillips head screws. I loosened the nuts (with a couple of long extensions) and removed the two screws. You can then push the headlight assy back, and remove another two screws from the top-front of the assy - you can see them in your photo. You can then push the headlight forward from the metal bracket enough to replace the headlight bulb.

Hope this helps! It drove me crazy for awhile!

How do you use those cable adjusters to change the aim of your light?

I think you just use a drill-driver with a 1/4" socket bit, and run them one way or the other...I need to wait until dark to see. My driver's side is way off.
