You need to remove the entire headlamp assembly. There are a couple of screws on the top that hold it tight that have to be removed. After you remove the screws the assembly will be loose, but still held in place by a plastic tab towards the outside of the assembly. You just need to pull the assembly out. It may not come out easily. One side of mine came out easily, the other side I had to tug and pull pretty hard. After you replace the bulb you need to slide and push the assembly back in place. The tab needs to go in first. You will know when it is in place correctly when there about a half inch gap between the assembly and the bumper. If the assembly rests on the bumper you do not have it in correctly. Replace the screws on the top.

2007 pontiac grand prix headlights are not working correctly. High beams work but not low beam. nothing works on automatic. Low beam bulbs have been replaced. Lights worked for one day, then back to not...

I drive a 07 Grand Prix and the low beams randomly went out. Could not get them to come back on, but all of the other lights worked (inside, parking, and high beams). found a forum online that recommended replacing the fuse/thing at location #35 in the fuse box under the hood. It worked immediately!! Got the part at Advanced Auto parts for $35 dollars.
