Question about 2005 Cadillac SRX
First you start with a lot of patience! You have to remove the bottom plastic cover that runs along the front grill. It comes off easily as you pull on the "push pins" that hold it in place. After that is slid out you have to remove the plastic piece inside the wheel well. It is held in place with the same push pins but for some reason there are two sizes but there are obviously different.
Once both of these pieces are out you have to use a 9/32" wrench or socket to remove two bolts. One is on the bottom (6 o'clock position) and the other is on the inboard side (9 o'clock position). The one at 9 o'clock is a bear to get out since it requires either a long reach wrench or freakishly small hands!
When those are out then the whole lamp assembly will drop down. You then need a torx driver (don't know what size since I lost patiernce before I finsihed and took it to the dealer) but once you take out six torx screws you can replace the bulb.
Then simply repeat the process backwards and you are finished!
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
