    Got as far as the bolts from the headlamp - but afterwards could not get the headlamp off of the vehicle.  Seems to be held in place by something on the turn signal lamp.  Headlamp seems to move freely, but held by something that I can't see.

If you do not have a sealed beam assembly, then remove the four screws on top...when the headlight assembly comes out unclip the harness from the bulb assembly. Pull the bulb out and replace...don't touch the halogen bulb with your fingers...just the plastic base.

I had this same problem, I used this blog link to replace the bulb in both of my headlights. I'll be honest here and tell you the passenger side is much easier than the drivers side. I'd recomend two of you be there for the first one, after that it's a one person job.

Trying to replace front turn signal in 2001 chevy cavalier I removed splash panel but cannot get to turn signal bulb - can you help


to replace the the turn signal and headlamp bulbs, you need to pull the lights out from the front

to do so first you'll have to remove the plastic cover that spans over the radiator (there should be 6 push-in plastic clips holding it in, I use a wire crimping tool, but a couple flat screwdrivers or pliers if careful can work as well)

now, if it's just the cornering lamp that you need, then a large screwdriver or small pry-bar can be used to pop the lamp out

To see where to pry it helps to have a flashlight and look between the headlamp and cornering lamp, there's a clip that holds it in place, just pry against the clip [towards the center of the car, be firm as it is stiff, but if you just yank it, it may brake as it's plastic]

The clip should be around (though below) where the tip of the fender ends. The corner lamp should just pop out with enough prying

For future reference, replacing the headlamp bulbs you get to this point then remove the 2 bolts you can see the brackets the headlamps are mounted to, and they should then come out

    2001 Chevrolet Cavalier, service light came on brights indicator came on, and headlamps flickered out. Changed relay, checked headlamp switch. Where to now?


    I would check the voltage at the battery while the engine is running. If over 15 volts , your voltage regulator is shot , and your headlights cooked.

    If that is problem , alternator will have to be replaced.
