Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Venture

How do I change my headlight?

On 97 and up Oldsmobile Silhouette, Pontiac Montana, Pontiac Transport, and Chevy Venture Van,


  • When you open the hood and look at the headlight assembly. At the top between the turn signal and headlight there is a black plastic wing nut. Unscrew that wing nut to remove the side marker light. After removing that nut persuade the side marker light to slide forward. That's the only thing that locks it in place. Untwist the socket to replace the turn signal bulb. Since that is out now...There are two more wing nuts just like the first one that hold the headlight assembly in place on top of the radiator support. (The black plastic piece the headlight is mounted to) Remove these two wing nuts and lift up on the whole assembly. Those are the only things that actually lock it into place. Once you slide it up off the studs the wing nuts were on. Unplug the plug from the back of the light (use a flat screwdriver to lift the tab a little). Twist the round plastic ring that holds the bulb in. The bulb should pull out now. Don't touch the new bulb with your fingers as it is a halogen bulb and the oil on your fingers will cause a hot spot on it, causing it to fail SOON. If you happen to touch the glass part of the headlight bulb, clean it with rubbing alcohol. Reverse the steps...go eat dinner.
If this pertained to your vehicle and helped in any way please take the time to rate, as I took the time to write it. Thank you.

I have a 200 venture, is there any way to check the BCM to find if it is ok?


Yes , but it involves taking the vehicle to a chevy dealer ! They would hook up the GM factory Tech2 scan tool . See if any codes are stored ,see if it will communicate with the tool . Should only cost about $26.00 buck .This isn't something for a non trained service tech. to mess with. The window not working is more then likely the regulater binding up . Would need to take door panel off to see what is wrong .
