You will have to go through your mud guards. Remove your tire, and look inside your wheel well, you will see two part mud guard, front half and back half. Just remove the 7 screws from the front half, 5 on the wheel well itself, and two on the bottom, retaining screw to the bumper, now depending on which side you're looking at anywhere from 5-7 plastic pop-its. Use a flat tip screw driver to loosen the pins up, then remove the pop-it studs. There are two on the bottom front that connect to the vehicle frame. Once this is removed, you can access your headlight assemby to replace both bulbs. Note, you will have to do this to replace your fog light bulb should it go out as well.

SOURCE: GMC Acadia Battery?
I have been having this problem after 40K miles now. I dont know if its the battery or the fact that GM, in all its infinate wisdom (NOT) decided to use a LAN system for everything in the car. This means that EVERY circuit is ALWAYS powered, whether the car is on or not. This is why, if you try to find a switchable fuse to tap into for a radar detector or Garmin you wil be unsuccessful. Also, this is why the cigarette lighters always on. Im not sure what the actual load is on the system when the car is off due to the LAN being powered, but it could be enough to kill the battery after a couple days if the alternater hasnt been run to charge it up.
i have had a radar detector hooked up for about a year now which is ALWAYS on, even when the car is off and it has finally started to take its toll on the battery, I think. The problem isnt your specific car, its the way they designed ALL of them.

Open the hood and look in the area behind the headlight itself. You will see the wires running in to the light through a collar. Turn the collar counter clockwise and remove the assembly. Remove the bulb and plug in the new bulb and reverse the process to replace.
