Question about 2005 Isuzu Ascender
What do I do if I can't pull the retainer tabs up?
Posted on Oct 25, 2016
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

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
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.
