Question about 1998 GMC Suburban
I just did this a couple of days ago. It's very easy. Open your hood, You'll notice right above your headlights are 2 hex shaped screws. Use a hex socket the same size to remove BOTH of the screws. Gently pull out the plastic headlight casing. The High beam light is located towards the center of the vehicle and has a red gasket and the low beam is located towards the outside of the vehicle and has a green gasket. There should be a blue clip on the back of the bulb, gently unclip and pull off the clip. Then unplug the lamp. After you've done this, gently unscrew the bulb so the parts line up and the bulb can be removed. Change the bulb reversing what you did to remove it. It only takes about 10-15 minutes maximum. Hope that helps.
