How do I remove the wiper motor assembly on a 2010 Chevy Equinox?


The trim is probably in two pieces with about 6 screws. You can see the screw holes between or on the vent grid. From there it will be obvious how to take out the motor and linkage.

Removal of center console 2007 equinox ls please emergency


If you are meaning the control panel console that is under the air vent grills, and surrounds the radio cluster...yes, this can be removed, and refinished by you before reassembling...The trim is a snap off that once removed will show you which bolts may also need to be taken out to remove this panel...my first try would be a nearby salvage yard that allows you to shop by yourself...find another Equinox, and practise the disassembly, and possibly use the salvage yard panel to replace yours...then no painting and will definitely match your trim panel...also you can go on-line to shop for a replacement panel from dozens of on-line salvage shops. If you are referring to the front end grills...the chevy chrome trim that runs through the headlights is also a snap on/off, be careful when prying lightly on bottom of trim to release...Hope this helps.

2005 chevy equinox headlights went out, only the driver side bright light works. Does this mean the passenger side headlamp is blown?


Sounds like you are right own...to change each bulb...you need to remove the chrome grill from the front center...be sure to pry up the clips carefully so not to break the trim bar...then each headlight assembly is removable with 3 10 mm bolts...do not touch your exposed fingers on the new bulbs...yes the low/high bulb is one unit...that is why I believe it is just your bulbs...about $11. each...Hope this helps.

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.

CHANGING HEADLIGHT FOR EQUINOX


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!

Changing headlight


There is an entire section in the Manual as to how to change the headlights. It involves dismantling the grill of the car. There are about six black pegs that need to be pulled out that attach the grill to the car. Pull the grill up and towards you. The silver trim that the Chevy emblem is on will pop off. Then on each light there are two screws that need to be removed on the top, and one hex screw on the side about half-way down the light. You can then pull the light up and out towards you to change the bulb.
