Tip & How-To about Chevrolet HHR

How to replace the headlight bulbs in a Chevrolet HHR

The procedure is in the owners manual, but it is not easy. You need to turn the wheels in (to right for drivers side) and then shut car off. Then you will need to loosen the inside front wheel well, which is plastic, until you can bend it out of the way enough to reach inside to the bulb. The bulb twists out with a 1/4 turn to the left and then unplugs. Just a hint, make sure that the gasket comes out with the bulb and that you only use one when you reinstall the new bulb. Fog light bulb is replaced the same way.

How do I get to the bulb on a 2006 hhr to change it?


I am assuming you mean the headlight buld since they are the toughest. The procedure is in the owners manual, but it is not easy. You need to turn the wheels in (to right for drivers side) and then shut car off. Then you will need to loosen the inside front wheel well, which is plastic, until you can bend it out of the way enough to reach inside to the bulb.

Changing bulb for front right turn signal


The procedure for changing the front bulbs is described in the owners manual but it is not easy. It is the same for the headlights, turn signals, and fog lights. First, turn the wheels in (to the left for the right side) and then turn off the vehicle. You will then loosen the screws on the inside plastic wheel well until you can bend it out of the way. You can then reach inside, and the bulbs all come out with a 1/4 twist to the left. Make sure you remove the old gasket ring, and install the new bulb with only one gasket. Screw the wheel well back into position and you are done.
