Question about 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

Replacement of front headlamp. I need to replace the bulb in the right front headlamp. My mechanic says that the grill must be removed first. That does not sound reasonable. Can I replace the bulb without removing the grill?

Headlamp remove & replace


If it is just burnt out , you do not have to remove or replace the whole lamp , just the small bulb inside of it. They are usually easily accessable from inside the engine compartment , and just come out of the back of the headlight by 1/4 turn.
