Introduction and question

What's up everyone, I got a 94 GC Limited 5.2 V8 gas guzzler. I'm handin it over to my dad in a few days, but it has some mods on it already and there's one last thing I want to do. The passenger side headlamp is terribly dull compared to the driver's side lamp, because the driver's side lamp was repaired due to an accident about a year ago. I want to remove my passenger side lamp to clean it up and try to match it with the driver's side lamp. My dad said that the lamps are connected to the same parts that hold the RADIATOR in. Is there an easy way for me to get to it? Thank

Also, has anyone lost all power to their fog lights? I tried replacing the bulbs and got nothing.. I noticed that some wire was exposed on the driver side fog lamp so I removed the rusted area and reattached the wires and still got nothing. Thanks in advance.

The head lamps on a 94 GC are held in by a type of ball & socket connector(s). They pop forward by pushing from behind the lamps with a lot of force. When I did mine, I broke one of the connectors. New head lamps can be found on ebay for half the cost that the dealer would charge. The lenses are plastic with a thin film of plastic on the front. Mine are pealing. Maybe they can be buffed-out? I removed mine to glue the two halves together because they would fill up with water.

Maybe I misunderstood you…if you need to replace only the bulb, then rotate the locking ring counterclockwise (about an 1/8th of a turn) and pull the bulb straight back & out.

Thanks for the replies, I'm gonna go yank at the lamps now. I noticed that Jeep uses a lot of connectors like that; they are all around the doors too; small yellow ones that break easily. I haven't checked the fuse yet either, I'll look there too. Thanks again - Arel
