SOURCE: replace a headlight in 2005 chevrolet trailblazer

Purchase a pair of bulbs (30.00). Start by removing the plastic trim with the Chevy emblem, pry off with a screw driver. There are two tabs that hold the head light assembly in place. Pull both up and the assembly falls forward. A quarter turn releases the bulb housing. Change bulb and reassemble in reverse order.

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.
1 Open hood and lock.
2. Take filter cover off (4 screws and they stay with the filter).
3. 3 inch cover pulls off.
4. Twist light bulb 1/8 turn.
5. Unclip the wiring harness to light bulb assembly.
6. Test by turning light switch on.
7. Align assembly with light housing and turn 1/8 until it snaps in.
8. Put 3 inch cover back on.
9. Place filter cover back on and hand tight the 4 screws.
10. Close hood.

Hi El, Since it's on the passenger side you'll need to remove the air filter housing & filter to get to the housing for the bulbs. Right behind that bulb housing there are two rubber coated caps (those caps are where the bulbs are located) that you'll need to remove. They can be tough to remove so it should be ok to use a flat head screwdriver to GENTLY pry the caps. Just make sure you are GENTLE with it and once it is loose use your hand to turn it counterclockwise about 1/4 turn. Gently pull it out then unplug the wire harness to it. **** IMPORTANT*** Like most headlight bulbs, DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. Halogens are ruined by our natural oils and it will make your new bulb burn out extra fast. Also: The outside bulb should be the LOW BEAM and the inside should be the HIGH BEAM. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll be happy to help.

SOURCE: How do you change the headlight bulb on a 2005 Chevy?

You DO NOT need to remove the grille. That is a lot of effort and you can easily break the mounting clips or the assemblies they clip to. Here it is step by step with a few warnings and tips. Replacement time - 5 minutes per bulb. It takes longer to read this than do the job, print it up.

(WARNING) when handling the new bulbs, DO NOT touch them with your bare hands. The oil from skin will create a hot spot on the bulb and cause it to burn out sooner than it is rated. I touched one that was on and smoke actually came off the bulb! Use either a cotton glove or I used a clean paper towel to handle the bulb. (tip) If only one low or high beam bulb is out, replace the low or high beam partner on the other side or you may be doing this again real soon.

1. Drivers Side. This is the easiest to get to. After opening the hood, right behind the lamp housing there are (2) rubber caps. The outside cap contains the low beam/day running bulb and the inside cap contains the high beam bulb.
a. Both bulbs are replaced the same way. Remove the rubber cap, these caps are soft and pliable but when you grab the edges to pull them off, they feel rigid. This is because the rubber cap is pressed over a hard plastic flange so when you squeeze and pull, it can be difficult to remove. If you can’t get a good grip to pull them off -
b. (Tip) There (2) clips on the headlamp housing, one is in plan view to the left and the other is under the fender just to the right top of the housing. It’s a little difficult to get to and you may need a flat head screwdriver to pry it up. Pull up on these clips and they will release the housing, but you cannot remove it. This will allow you to pull the housing out a few inches and you can see the edges of the rubber caps.
c. Using a flat head screwdriver, just gently pry the cap, once it starts coming off you can remove it with your hand. Reach in and grab the bulb assembly and turn it about ¼ corner turn “counter” clockwise and it will come out.
d. Remove the power wire harness that is clipped on.
e. Snap the new bulb into the power wire harness (DO NOT TOUCH) the new bulb with your bare hand!
f. Gently place it the bulb assembly back in the housing, turn ¼ turn clockwise, it will snap into place, replace the rubber cap, push the housing back into place and press the housing clips back down.
g. NOTE: Always put the rubber cap back on, it helps to keep moisture out of the housing.


2. Passenger Side. This is the hardest to get to. Remove the air cleaner cover and filter or you won’t be able to reach the back side of the housing. The instruction on how to remove these items should be in your owners manual.

How do change a low beam headlight on a 2005 trailblazer?


Drivers side....stick your hand down by the alternator and over behind the back of the headlight assembly. You'll feel a 3" round rubber boot, just pull this off. Twist out the bulb and replace.

Passenger side...remove the air cleaner box, when this is done, you can remove the rubber boot and replace the bulb with plenty of room.

The other method involves removing the grill, but pulling this out can break the grill, it's brittle. So I choose not to do this method.

Needs steps to remove grille to change headlight


Typically you do not have to remove the grill. Usually you DO have to remove the entire headlight assembly, which comes out with 3 or 4 bolts. Then the whole thing comes out and you can easily change the bulb.

Replace the headlight bulb Chev. Trialblazer. 2005


On the drivers side pop off the black round cap from behind the light in the engine compartment and turn and release the connector. On the passenger side remove the air filter housing and remove cap and connector. this is very tight and the wire harness is short. It is mostly a one handed operation. Good luck.
