It is actually quite easy and it will not require tools, but you have to remove the entire headlight assembly.

Open the hood and as you look at the top of the headlight assembley you should notice two tabs, you will need to pull these up and then remove the assembly. Once it is out you will be able to unplug the wires from the lights and then remove the bulb.

Replace the bulb, the wires and then reassemble, make sure that the tabs are pressed all the way down once finished and you are done

I need to change the headlights in a 1998 cavalier but I don't know how to take off the cover for the headlights?


You change the bulbs from the back of the composite headlight assembly. Open the hood, turn the bulb connector counterclockwise-about a quarter turn, and pull connector and bulb out. Take old bulb out, put new on on-don't touch the bulb glass with your fingers, body oil may shorten bulb life.

Changing headlights


Your grille and chrome bar are held to your truck with eight clips. You can see the top clips if you look. First VERY GENTLY!!! start pulling your grille until you start popping those clips out. Keep an eye on your chrome bar, because it is clipped into the headlight. GENTLY pull on the chrome bar at the headlight until the clips come off, then work your way over to the other headlight. The goal is to be take your time and be gentle until you have all the clips released. Set your grille aside(be careful not to scratch it). Each head light has two metal tabs on top of it, the outer tabs are slightly hidden in the fender. If you pull these tabs up, it will release the headlight from the frame of the truck(be careful not to let the headlight fall out and scratch your bumper). Once you have the headlight assembly out, pop off the circle rubber cover on the back of the unit. Your bulbs will be inside there, and make sure you don't touch the bulb when removing it. Just reverse the process when your done changing your bulbs. Don't forget to put the rubber cap back on the headlamp unit before you re-install it.

I need to change the headlight bulb on my 2006 trailblazer but its kind of difficult to do it. I need an instruction how to change it rather than going to the dealer paying $150 just to change the bulb


you will need to remove the front grill face plate that goes from the front of right headlight to the front of the left headlight. then you will need to remove the bolts at the top of the headlight housing. then you need to pull outwards on the assembly to access the headlight bulbs.

Your headlight switch needs to be replaced. Here's the section from the maintenance manual.

Headlight Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

1996 Dakota
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column cover and remove the instrument panel bezel. Two screws are hidden behind the steering column cover.
  3. Remove the screws from the headlight switch bezel, pull the assembly out and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the nut retaining the bezel to the bracket. Depress the spring button on the right side of the switch and remove the headlight switch knob and stem.
  5. Remove the spanner nut and remove the switch.
  6. The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

Replacing headlights


There are two clips for each light; one to each side just lift up on the clips. Then you have four upper and two lower grill clips that are the push/pull type. Just pull where the clips are located and they will pull right out. Watch for stressing the wiring going to the running lights. You then can pull the headlight grill assy out far enough to change the lights. Low beams are to the outside and high beams to the inside. DON'T TOUCH THE BULBS!!! A little twist left or right will unlock the bulbs. Use some contact grease to make sure the contacts stay good. 15 - 20 minute job.
