This is called the trim assembly, and typically does not require repair. Your parts dealer can show you what you need, as well as acquiring the part numbers and pricing....accordianman

How to replace a headlight on a 2008 eqinox


Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out. Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight threw the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully. To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - Started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch. There are lock tabs on both the top and bottom of this trim piece when you get to the grille area. Work your way down the trim piece by prying wherever you locate a tab and protecting with the rag as you go until the "bow tie" trim piece comes off. The headlight assembly catches are the tightest. Set it off to the side so you don't step on it or scratch it. Step 3 - Unbolt the light assembly. There are two hex-headed screws on top and one 10MM down inside (towards the center of the car). Remove these 3 bolts. Step 4 - Remove the assembly - There are 2 guide tabs in the lower outside part of the light assembly (opposite the 10MM screw). Wiggle the assembly while pulling out (forward). When the tabs clear, lift up on the headlight and it should be easy to work the rest of the way out to gain access to the headlamp. Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth. Re-assembly - I found that by inserting the light assembly under the grille first, I was able to get the two guide tabs to easily line up and pop in place. Everything else was easy.Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know how you did and please rate to make it easier to post back.

How to change the headlight bulb on the passenger side of 2005 equinox


Step 1 - Raise the hood and remove the 4 push-in retainers that go along the top of the front grille. These are each two part retainers - remove both parts by prying with a small screwdriver. Nothing comes off here - this just makes the grille loose for maneuvering the headlight assembly around to get it in and out.
Step 2 - Remove the "bow tie" trim piece that runs from headlight to headlight thru the middle of the front grille - it is cheap plastic so do this carefully (mine looks like chrome with the Chevy 'bow tie' in the center). To do this, use a flat-bladed screwdriver and a rag (to protect the headlight). This trim part comes off - I started at the driver's side and work toward the passenger side. Place the rag below the trim on the headlight. Carefully pry up on the trim piece with the screwdriver and work the trim with your fingers until it pops out of the headlight assembly catch.

Step 5 - remove and replace the bulb - it is halogen so you DO NOT touch it with your fingers because the finger oil will cause a hot spot and the bulb will burn out fast. Handle the new bulb with a clean cloth - a clean sock works well.

97 F-350 Headlight door removal


The front couple bolts (enough to fold the inner fender wells) on the fender wells (plastic part around inside the wheel well). Take them out, I think i did 6. Basically, just do what you have to do to fold the front part of that plastic inner fender well enough to see behind the parking light, then you need to remove the parking light/corner light assy. and once they are out you can reach the final screws required to remove the headlight trim rings. Also there are a few people on EBAY that are selling replacement headlight/parking/corner light assemblys that have clear outer lenses that dont get all yellow and foggy as the stock ones do. I bought smoked ones that have a light tint to it and they have projector caps so you can use HID kits and get a nice beam. something you might want to look into if your going to do the trim rings since its kind of a p.i.t.a.

Headlight


on most vehicle from that period there is a trim piece around the headlight that can be removed to access the actual mechanism that holds the headlight in place, usually a ring around the light. do not confuse the headlight adjusting screws only on one side or only the top or bottom for the headlight mount screws.
