You can't get at them from the engine bay. You've got to remove the plastic grill on the front of the car, to get at other screws, and take a few screws out that hold the entire headlight assembly in. Do not unscrew any of the screws above or below the lights. These are for adjusting the angle of the headlights. You'll have to readjust them if you do. Not a big deal, just unnecessary if you don't touch them.

There should be 2 screws on either side of the headlight assembly. Spray some penetrating fluid on them. I broke one with very little pressure because I didn't. Sheared the head right off the shaft.

Once you get the headlight assembly out the bulbs come out with a quarter turn of the socket. Remember not to touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil will create hot spots and it could crack the bulb. If you do then clean it with a high percentage alcohol before putting it in.

Replacing headlight bulb. How to get the grill out.


For agrivation go to walmart and have an oil change and ask them to change the headlight bulbs, they do NOT CHARGE EXTRA labor charges.

Otherwise, gently apply pulling pressure on the front grill every few inches to get the grill unhooked on the top and bottom nearest the headlight assembly. Then have someone hold the grill assembly out while you pull out the headlight assembly to access the rear of it to remove the hold down nut to remove the bulb's. Reverse removal procedure, which is actually harder to put the headlight assembly back into place then it is to remove.

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.

Replace headlight bulbs on a 2000 chevy blazer LT.


Yes, you can. Just take off the front grill, and the
headlights assembly. Don't tinker with the head-
light assembly adjusting nut, as this would change your headlight level. Take headlight bulb
off and change it. Replace the headlight, then, the
grill, and it's done.

Signal light change.


There is one 10mm Bolt on the top of the light and three 10mm nuts on the back of the light. You will need to use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts because they are in a tight place.

After the 1 bold and 3 nuts are removed, the entire headlight assemble will pull straight out. You don't need to take the headlight bulb out because there should be enough wire to pull out the assembly far enough to get to the turn signal bulb. This will allow you to change the turn signal bulb which should be a 4157 amber bulb.

When putting the headlight assemble back in the van, there is a plastic pin in headlight assembly that goes into a hole in the front fender for alightment. Don't force the light. Take your time and the headlight assembly will go back in the van smoothly.
