Yes you can replace it. the bulb is removed from inside the engine compartment. if the burnt out bulb is on the battery side you will likely have to take the battery out. the socket generally turns about a quarter turn or so... have a look to see if there is a large ring that you turn and remove first.
One important detail do NOT touch the bulb with your fingers as it shortens the bulbs lifespan.

Headlight for 2004 trail blazer

If it's just a bulb replacement open the hood and with one hand push in on the headlight, with the other hand inside, pull up on the white plastic retaining clip. This will release the bulb. Pull it out forward, then replace with new bulb (be careful not to touch the new bulb, oil from the hands can cause bulb to burst.)

If you need to replace the whole headlight assembly I would try buying used for a better price.

Which fuse should i change for my headlights ?

Look at your fuse panel board either under the dash board on drivers side or possibly under the hood depending on vehicle. It will tell u which fuse is for the headlights.

Or from the sounds of it... Possible head light bulb burnt out and not a fuse. A headlight fuse should not be popping or burning out. I would suggest looking at the filament on the bulb to see if intact. Replace broken head light bulb with working other working headlight to eliminate one possibility. If it works buy a new bulb. If it doesn't look at fuse panel.

Headlight bulb burnt out. Upon replacing bulb, found the plug had been hot and burnt the plastic mold around plug. The prong hole was also black. New replacement bulb also burnt out immediately.

Welcome to Fixya
This is a common problem with headlight bulb higher than the 60W bulb. You can actually replace the plug with a ceramic type so that it wont melt. This happens to my car. I am using halogen bulb and burned the plastic mold together with the bulb. Replacing the plastic mold with ceramic type mold fixed the problem.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Main headlights wont work but bright headlights do

To all, check your dim bulbs. Make sure they aren't burnt out. If they aren't, time to see if your dimmer/turn signal switch is the problem. For the switch, take it to a mechanic or see if someone else will help ya. Wiring isn't my best subject in autos.
