Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
There are only 3 bolts and a few tabs. Here's how to remove it.t is not necessary to remove the entire grill, just the chrome trim
piece that extends across both head lights. Use a small flat
screwdriver and delicately pry the trim piece towards you. It is held
in place by several small plastic tabs that are located across the
entire back side of the trim piece. Be VERY careful in doing this as
the chrome piece is very brittle & easily broken or damaged. Once
you have the trim removed, you will need to remove 3 bolts that retain
the headlight assembly and one press-in tab. The bolts have 10mm heads.
Two are located on the top of the assembly, one on the lower corner.
After removing the 3 bolts, pull the headlight forward to dislodge the
lower retaining tab which is on the opposite side of the headlight
housing from the lower bolt toward the rear of the housing. Once you
have the assembly out, accessing the bulb is simple!
This is not the easiest job to do, so it is a good idea to take painter's tape & protect the paint on the bumper & fender as well as the clear, Lexan part of the headlight assembly.
Take your time, be careful, & you will get it right the first time!
