Question about 2007 Chevrolet HHR Special Edition
It will take some time, so be patient.
1. Disconnect the air intake hose to the filter box. It is at the left rear of the box as you look at it from the front of the car.
2. Disconnect the MAP sensor wiring.
3. Disconnect the coupling to the engine intake.
4. The filter box is help in place by two ball and socket type retainers located on the back corners. Grasp the box and lift up firmly to lift it free,
5. Turn the assembly upside down. There are seven torx screws covering the filter. Remove them and replace the filter.
6. Reverse the process to re-install the filter box.

The headlight assembly is accessed from inside the fender well. There are two pop out plastic rivets and a small (4mm? head) body screw that secure the fender liner to the fender. Those need to be removed. Pull the fender liner back enough to work your arm into the fender. Locate the wiring to the headlight and grasp the plug. Rotate it to the left until the bulb is free of the reflector. Pull the lamp and wiring out from behind the fender liner. Remove the bad bulb. There is a release tab on the plug. Insert the new bulb into the plug. DO NOT touch the bulb glass. The oil from your skin can cause the bulb to explode when it gets hot. Hold the plug and work the bulb and wiring back to the original position. It is a little easier to look through the headlight lens as you work the bulb back into the reflector. Turn the plug to the right until it is properly seated. Replace the two pop out rivets and the body screw.
You should replace the headlights in pairs. I didn't and the right bulb went out in a couple more weeks when the weather was much worse. The right bulb was more of a pain to replace than the left, probably because I am right handed.
Hope this helps.

How to Replace a Headlight Bulb
(DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 0.9 hour)
1. Headlight Bulb
2. 1/4 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Socket Set
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the headlight assembly.
o Tip: Most headlight assemblies have a place in the rear to gain access to the headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is recommended that headlight bulbs are replaced in pairs.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
Step 2 Gain access to headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is a good idea to check the high beam and low beam headlight bulbs at this time.
Step 3 Disconnect the wiring harness and replace the old headlight bulb with a new one.
Step 4 Turn on the headlights and check high and low beams to verify repairs.
Hope this help (remember rated this help). Good luck.

Turn your wheels in on the side that you are replacing, remove the two locking pins at the bottom side of the wheel well liner, pull the liner back and reach in to turn the bulb socket.
