Question about 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe
I need some info on replacing my headlamp lenses. How to remove old ones and install new ones.
On a 99 Tahoe Don't remove the grill.. There are two 6 inch long, hex head, vertical screws protruding from the frame above the headlight. To unscrew use a small hex socket.. maybe 1/4 inch. Turn the screws counterclockwise to remove till loose then pull up. The screws serve as a linch pin to secure the headlight to the mounting bracket. Here's a pic of the driver side light. Also, I had very good results with my park light lenses in 5 minutes with a hand drill, a soft buffing pad, and some fine polish. They were yellow and dull and looked clear and white when done. I washed the inside of the lense with soapy water and a soft toothbrush.. it made a big difference.

I am assuming you have composite headlights that have a plastic lens.If they are faded/yellowed or broke, you will need to replace the complete light.The lens are glued from the factory in place and cannot be serviced.Some parts stores offer a lens cleaning kit that helps bring back some of the clarity of the lens if they are faded.To remove composite head lights you'll need to remove the grill and you will see that the light mounts a black plastic mounting panel.Remove the 4 bolts that hold the mounting panel to the radiator support and then you can remove the light from the panel.Hope this answers your question.
