Needs steps to remove grille to change headlight


Typically you do not have to remove the grill. Usually you DO have to remove the entire headlight assembly, which comes out with 3 or 4 bolts. Then the whole thing comes out and you can easily change the bulb.

Do I need to remove entire grill to change front left headlight?


If they are sealed beam headlights then you have to remove the grille in order to gain access to the screws to change the light. If they are halogen bulbs, they are accessed from behind the headlight. Held in by a retaining ring.

Replacing headlight bulb. How to get the grill out.


For agrivation go to walmart and have an oil change and ask them to change the headlight bulbs, they do NOT CHARGE EXTRA labor charges.

Otherwise, gently apply pulling pressure on the front grill every few inches to get the grill unhooked on the top and bottom nearest the headlight assembly. Then have someone hold the grill assembly out while you pull out the headlight assembly to access the rear of it to remove the hold down nut to remove the bulb's. Reverse removal procedure, which is actually harder to put the headlight assembly back into place then it is to remove.

Headlight replacement


you can access the outer headlights from under the hood. the inner healights have to be replaced by removing the grille. after grille is removed you will see 10 mm head bolts above & possibly below the headlight bracket remove them & headlight capsule should come right out.

2002 Suzuki XL-7 headlight removal


No other way to get the headlight housing out other than to remove the grille not the fender. Remove the clips that secure the top of the radiator grille. There are 5 screws on the bottom portion of the grille that have to be removed before you can remove the grille. There are 3 screws and something called a guide pin on the headlight housing. Detach the electrical connector from the bracket by squeezing the lock tip with a pair of pliers. Remove the bulbs and have fun cleaning the headlight lens.
