Are you talking about the housing or the bulbs? Bulbs can be replaced by removing the two ten mm horizontally mounted bolts that hold the housing in. These are located towards the center of the car on each side and should be right above and below each other. Once these have been removed, firmly, but gently pull the housing slightly out at the mounting bolt site and then straight back towards you. The wraparound section of the housing is help in place by an off-set clip that locks inside the fender. Care should be taken not to bend it, for if broken the whole housing will need to be replace and these still fetch abround a 100$ a piece at scrap yards. Find the bulb that needs replacing and turn the fitting, (wires and all) in a counter-clockwise motion. It should turn firmly, but easily and it should pull straight back out from the housing. Then remove the two pronged clip from the headlight insert and replace with the appropriate bulb. If using LG's (OEM) I believe the part number is 9600 for standard halogens. Reverse to install. Good Luck, hope this helps.

Changed spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre and now it cranks and runs, but white smoke coming out. Is that blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump my mechanic put on 3 weeks ago???

You need to check the oil with the dipstick (wipe in down a few times) to see if it looks like a chockalate milk shake. If coolent has made its way into the oil you have blown head gasket. The fuel pump which is usually in the gas tank in most gm vehicles would not cause white smoke, if it failed you car would not start because your engine would not get any gas to the injectors

1997 buick lasabre radio locked

You must take it to a dealership and they will unlock it for you. There is a specific dealer code that will unlock any radio and once they do it, you pick one that you will remember. This is part of the anti theft. Hope this helps.

1997 buick lasabre custom high idle, transmission, stalling

Try cleaning your grounds under the hood: under Ignition Module bracket, rf fender behind battery and lf fender in front of windshield washer fluid bottle.
I had similar problem and this fixed it.....grounds are very important for computer.
I used a carbon conductive grease on the connections to keep them from oxidizing.
Hope this helps you out.
