How to change the park lights on a buick enclave


The headlight holds all the bulbs park, brake and side marker bulbs so you locate the screws around the headlight and remove them. Some are jack screws remove the adjustment screws and the headlight assembly should pull loose then disconnect the wiring to the bulb and then twist the bulb out.

Change out a driver's side headlight assembly?


You didn't indicate a year but the procedure for changing the bulb hasn't really changed in a dodge since the 90's. open the hood and look behind the headlight and you should see a collar assembly with wires going to the center. Turn the collar counter clockwise to unlock it and pull it out. To change the actual light assembly for 2000 and newer you open the hood and look for two TORX head screws, you remove those and should be able to pull the assembly out toward the front. Those are the adjustment screws and go all the way through from top to bottom. 1999 and older it varies by model and is usually two to 3 screws or nuts that hold the assembly in place sometimes under the hood and sometimes on the outside of the light.

I'm having a problem removing the headlight assembly from my 2004 chrysler crossfire, i've removed the 2 screws from the top and removed 1 from below through the wheel well, are there two screws...


Last I checked Chrysler had changed it's headlight mounting from external screws to just the two adjusting screws. Looking down from the top, you should be able to see two Torx head screws that are used to adjust the headlight assembly. The remove teh head light assembly you remove those and the assembly should come right out. Both of these screws or adjusters will be 6 to 8 inches long. I hope your not removing this to change the headlight it self. Chrysler has been using the insert bulbs for several generations and to replace the bulb you only have to unlock the collar on the back of the light assembly and pull and then replace the bulb.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

Can not get headlight bucket to come out far enough to replace bulb on my 2005 BUICK TERRAZA


There are 2 fasteners that hold the headlight in place, 1 screw and 1 pin per light.
Their location is on the top mounting flange of the headlight. The pins are located toward the center of the vehicle and the screw is located toward the outside.
For removal: turn the pin toward the light then pull it straight up removing it, next remove the screw and the headlight assembly and the light will pull strait out allowing access to the bulbs and sockets. Reverse the process for installation.

The headlights are fastened in with 2 L-shaped pins.You should see them at the top of the light assemblies. Pull up on them, and they pull straight up and out. Your light assemblies are now free to remove. Now you can access the turn signals.

Replace low beam headlight on 2003 chevy trailblazer


I just replaced the low-beam bulb on my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer. The grill just needs to be loosed slightly. Then, raise two L shaped brackets, one on each side. For the inside one, I needed to use a flathead screwdriver to get to it. The light assembly can then be pulled out. Remove the rubber cover and rotate the bulb one quarter turn left to release it. Pull out the bulb, replace with a new one ($11.50) from Advance Auto Parts, and reverse the process. Once I figured it out, took about 10 minutes total.

How to change headlights


Hey there,

You need to remove the two plastic pins in order to pull back the upper front grille. Best bet is to get a flathead screwdirver under those pin heads to pop them up, then rotate the pins around to pull them out. You should be able at this point to pull up the grille, and that should give you the clearance to wiggle out the headlamp. It's tricky, but worth it!
