    I have an '05 g6 and i don't think you can access the light from the inside. I had to take mine to a shop cuz they had to take off the whole bumper and take the light out to change it. I didn't have the right tools. It cost about 100 bucks too. Now the other one is out and I wanna try myself this time but cant figure it out.

It's really easy to get to the headlight. You have to pull really hard on the whole headlight assembly to pop it off its ball tab. Then unscrew the round back of headlamp and change it. Push the assembly back into place with a lil force. Replace plastic tabs you have to take out to loosen top of bumper and your all done. No need to spend a lot of money at a shop its a do it yourself project.

I am not as familiar with the G-6 as other cars, but I am thinking that you do not take the cover off the headlight, but from behind the light, there is an assembly that pulls out to let you access it from the back. Most have a water resistant boot over it, then it screws off.

I cant figure out how to change my right front blinker bulb on my 2006 Pontiac G6. do you have to take the whole headlight out? Or the front bumper off? lol You can see I dont know where to even start

The headlight assembly must come out (it's part of that unit)
The assembly is removed by removing the three fasteners on top and then gently but firmly pulling the assembly straight out (forward)
You'll see the harness for your blinker in there

Changing the headlight on a 2006 pontiac g6

To replace the headlight bulbs.You need to remove the head light assembly out.The head light assembly is held by 2 to 3 three screws on each side. You need to remove those screws first.The front trim will get loose,the front trim is held by pins.The pins are of plastic and easy to release.Just release this pins and the front trim will get completely loose and can be easily taken off/. The head light assembly is in the front fender.Once the front trim is removed the head light assembly can be easily removed from front fender compartment.If its bit tight there,then you can use a screwdriver to give it a pull towards out.The head light bulbs can now be easily seen as well as easily removed now.Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove the bulb from the bulb assembly. -------- Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

How do I get the headlight cover off to replace the bulb?

there should be two ten mm bolts to remove then look to see if there is a metal pin/rod that aligns the headlight assembly on outer side you might have to wiggle it and pull straight out they get stuck often when re-installing make sure metal pin/rod aligns with hole to keep headlamp adjusted if not installed correctly headlamps wont be aligned.

Front headlights

theres two bolts on top of the lighting housing that you have to remove first. in the back corner of the housing there is a ball and joint that you have to slip out this will remove the housing from the car. on the back of the housing there is three circlular disks that u can twist off which will expose the bulb. repeat these steps in reverse to reinstall.
