Re: Having problem replacing the driver side head light...
Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.

Drivers side: Gotta stick your hand way in there in front of the battery, and take the rubber dust boot off, just slides right off. Twist the bulb out, and disconnect from connector.
Passenger side: easiest if you just remove the air cleaner box, 3 screws, one on the top, one on the right side, and one on the bottom left. Remove these screws, then pull box straight up. You'll then have complete easy access to the rubber dust boot and bulb.
Easiest way is to stick your hand in front of the battery and take the dust cover off, twist the bulb and done. I'm lucky, have smaller hands! lol, If you can't get to it, remove the battery for easy access.
The passenger side requires removal of the aircleaner box.

There are two bulb containers above the license plate light and you just need a small screw driver to press in under the left side of the plastic bulb housing to release the plastic clip. The plastic bulb holder will swing from the right hand side and will then fall out. All you need is a medium size flat head screw driver.
You have to unscrew the housings with a philips screw driver and take the housing out of the hole, by turning it sideways and pulling it out. Then turn out the bulb holder from the back of the housing and pull out the bulb.
reasons bulbs keep blowning.your head light bulbs is halogen bulbs.dont touch with bare hands.the oils on your hands will make them over heat and blow.so use clean gloves on your hands when replacing the head light bulbs.if all is good.check alternator out put.it could be overcharging causing too much current flow through electrical circuit blowing out bulbs.use a digital volt meter hook it battery with car running battery voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts. if it is 15 to 16 volts too many volts.alternator is faulty.due to lock out features turn off radio before disconnecting battery cables so you wont lose radio playing code.
1.) Open the hood of your van
2.) On the passenger side of the vehicle, look behind the headlight
enclosure. You will see a set of wires running into the back of it.
This is the power clip. Either with your hand or a flat-head
screwdriver, pop the power clip off.
3.) There is a plastic ring encasing the light bulb. Turn the
ring counter-clockwise and pull it out of the socket and set it aside.
4.) Pull firmly on the light bulb to remove it.
5.) Place the new light bulb into the same opening. Be careful
not to touch the glass part of the new bulb. The oils in your skin can
substantially reduce the life of the new bulb.
6.) Replace the plastic ring and turn it clockwise to lock it in place.
7.) Reattach the power clip to the back of the bulb.
There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.
Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.
I replace my head light bulbs recently and it was easy. I think that you might have to replace the whole head light assembly in order to replace the glass. Hope this helps. I found the answer in the drivers hand book under light bulb replacement.
Thank you for sharing the information on the light bulb. You just saved me money from having to take my 2003 Trailblazer in to have the low beam bulb replaced. I did exactly what you said.
