    How do I remove halogen low beam head light to replace it?

    Removal & Installation To Remove:
    The halogen fog light bulb contains gas under pressure. The bulb may shatter if the glass envelope is scratched or if the bulb is dropped. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass envelope.
    NOTE: The headlight bulb should not be removed from the headlight assembly until just before a replacement bulb is installed. Removing the bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlight bulb performance. Contaminants may enter the headlight assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector. Never turn on the headlights with the bulb removed.
    1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section. NOTE: Make sure that the headlight switch and the ignition switch are in the OFF position.
    2. Remove the pin-type retainers, screws and the air deflector from the radiator.
    3. Remove the three bolts and the headlight assembly.
    4. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    5. Remove the cover from the rear of the headlight assembly.
    6. If equipped with HID, release the spring tabs to remove the low beam bulb, otherwise disconnect the electrical connector and remove the bulb.
    7. Disconnect the electrical connector and remove the high beam bulb.

    The brown electrical connector behind passenger headlight has burnt out , any ideas what this part is called and where could i get one ?, many thanks .

    It's called a headlight bulb connector, available at most any auto parts shop. They do melt, usually from use of high wattage headlight bulbs. You will have to cut and join in the new connector to your existing headlight wires.

    How to put in a headlight on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer

    Please follow the stepwise solution carefully.
    1.Open the hood and disconnect the truck's negative battery cable.
    Remove the grille. Unbolt and remove the plastic panel over the radiator, then use a flat screwdriver to release the clips securing the grille at the bottom to the headlight panel and lift the grill off.

    Pull up the retaining tabs for the headlight housing, which are on opposite ends, and carefully pull the housing out. Remove the park/turn signal bulb socket from the housing by detaching the holders and electrical connectors and disconnect the side marker socket.

    Take off the circular access cover from the rear of the headlight housing. Twist the bulb in a counterclockwise direction, withdraw the bulb with its electrical connector from the housing and disconnect the electrical connector.

    Hold the new bulb by the holder--do not touch the glass--as you connect the electrical connector. Place the bulb in the housing and twist it clockwise to lock it in place. Close the access cover.

    Install the headlight housing into the panel, connecting the electrical connectors, signal bulb socket and side marker socket. Push the retaining tabs in place.

    7.Reinstall the grille and plastic radiator panel and reconnect the negative battery cable.

    Problem solved.

    Take care.
