It 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

Welcome to Fixya! This is a convoluted process, but rather simple. The grills has to come off and then the radiator cover (???) then you can access the back of the headlight assy.

How do I remove the headlight cover from 2005 crossfire to clean the precipitation


they are sealed units and not meant to be taken apart, if there is moisture inside it means there is a crack or hole somewhere allowing it in, look for anywhere moisture can get in and seal it, the moisture that is there now will dry up over time.

2008 chev uplander headlight


You must reach around to the body of the headlight switch and feel for a small round dot about 1/8 inch in diameter. This button is spring loaded and pushes in as you pull on the lightswitch knob, then you must push it a second time to release the knob. Please make sure your battery is disconnected while performing this procedure for the headlights will stay on otherwise. Then remove the retaing collar at the center and the switch will pull "back" from the dash enough to remove the wiring harness. Thank you, Dana

Dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox


DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equonox


you might have to dismantle the key ignition assembly on your steering column. Have you tried getting some channel locks or some pliers to swiftly yank out the key? Is the key bent inside the ignition? If so, you have a problem on your hands and you'll have to remove the assembly and most replace it.
