Re: how do I get to the bulb on the front of the monter...
I changed the turn signal bulb by going in under the tire wall. there is a pop out panel held in place by clips. remove the clips, being careful no to break them, then once the panel is out of the way, you should see pretty obviously how to get at the bulbs. Hope this helps.

FACE THE VEHICLE SO THAT BATTERY IS ON YOUR RIGHT; 2.REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC PIECE THAT RUNS OVER RADIATOR BETWEEN HOOD LATCH AND FAN. IT IS ABOUT 53 1/2" LONG AND HOLDS THE HOOD PROP CLIP. (3 PLASTIC PUSH RETAINERS & 2 SHEET METAL SCREWS); 3.REMOVE THE GRILL ASSEMBLY UNDERNEATH THE PIECE IN STEP 2 BY PUSHING DOWN FIRMLY ON 4 RETAINER CLIPS WHICH RUN ALONG THE TOP. USE A WIDE SLOT SCREWDRIVER. PULL UP GENTLY ON GRILL ASSEMBLY. IT WILL POP OUT. THE GRILL ASSEMBLY EXTENDS UNDER EACH HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY (HA) AND IT DISPLAYS THE CHEVROLET LOGO IN THE MIDDLE. MY GRILL ASSEMBLY POPPED OUT EASILY AND ALL THE OTHER RETAINER CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM AND BENEATH AND TO THE SIDE OF HA WERE AUTOMATICALLY RELEASED WITHOUT ANY FUSS; 4.ON TOP OF HA SEE ONE TAB (ABOUT 1" LONG)ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND ONE ON THE LEFT (THE ONE ON L IS CLOSER TO THE FENDER); 5.PULLUPWARDDIRECTION ON TABS. THEY WILL SLIDE UPWARD A COUPLE OF INCHES AND WILL RELEASE THE HA WHICH YOU CAN THEN PULL OUT TOWARDS YOU; 6.AT BACK OF THE HA, REMOVE 2 ROUND RUBBER CAPS (ABOUT 4" IN DIAMETER)--ONE FOR LOW BEAM--ONE FOR HIGH. REVEAL BULBS. UNSNAP THE WIRE HARNESS FROM BULB BASE AND TURN BULB 1/4 TURN CLOCKWISE (REMEMBER YOU ARE FACING THE TRUCK) 7.REPLACE BULB(S). #9006 BULB IS GRAY-BASE, FOR HIGH BEAM ON OUTSIDE. #9005 IS BLACK-BASE, LOW BEAM TO INSIDE OF HIGH BEAM. CHANGING HIGH AND LOW AND REASSEMBLY TOOK ABOUT HALF HOUR. GOOD LUCK.
ALTERNATIVE: IF YOU ARE REPLACING THE PASSENGERSIDE HEADLIGHT JUST REMOVE THE AIR FILTER COVER AND PULL PLUG OUR FROM BEHIND HEADLIGHT AND REPLACE. BE CAREFUL HANDLING LIGHT BULB. TO CHANGE THE ONE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE JUST REACH IN FRONT OF THE BATTERY TO ACCESS THE PLUG AND HEADLILGHT. TOOK ABOUT 5 MINUTES. ENJOY YOU TRAILBLAZER, GREAT TRUCK.
Yes, you can. Just take off the front grill, and the headlights assembly. Don't tinker with the head- light assembly adjusting nut, as this would change your headlight level. Take headlight bulb off and change it. Replace the headlight, then, the grill, and it's done.
It is a very tight fit getting those bulbs out of the corners. It is a regular twist and release socket, but you may not be able to get access to it if the fit is too tight. The good news is the lamp comes out pretty easy if necessary. There are two bolts on top and one on the inside corner behind the grill (just held on with plastic release clips and plastic screws) Here is a diagram, hope it helps!
the metal ring is the retainer for the bulb. you should be able to get at it from the front area without taking the grill loose. most of those only have 2 little phillips head screws. remove the screws and the bulb will come out. unplug it and the new one goes right back in. installation is the reverse of removal.
Remove the push-pin retainers that secure the top of the upper fascia and grille assembly to the upper tie bar to allow the upper fascia and grille assembly to flex forward.
Remove the bolt and the push-pin retainer that secures the top of the headlamp assembly to the upper tie bar.
Gently pull the upper fascia and grille assembly forward only far enough to remove the bolt located at the bottom inboard side of the headlamp assembly.
Pull the headlamp assembly straight out to disengage the snap-in retainer at the lower outboard back surface of the assembly. Turn the assembly so that the front inboard corner clears the front fascia.
Pull the headlamp assembly out and away from the vehicle
Disconnect the headlamp electrical connector.
Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle.
Remove the headlamp bulb cover from the headlamp assembly.
Remove the headlamp bulb socket from the headlamp assembly.
Remove the headlamp bulb.
Remove the side marker bulb socket from the outer side of the headlamp assembly.
I've noticed the same problem with my 2001 Ford Exployer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend drives my truck she raises the steering column, and when I'm driving, I lower the column. I noticed when I was driving recently the left front turn signal kept flashing quickly, thought it was the bulb, but changed and still happening. Today I took apart the steering column cover and noticed the wiring for the turn signals and hazards were loose. To fix this problem I pulled the wires out of column more as to not stress the connection. So far this has fixed the problem.
