Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
1999 GMC Envoy w/ same problem - we removed the bumper then had easy access to the ballast (two bolts on top and one on the bottom if I remember correctly). For the bumper, there are two bolts visible on top, then two a bit lower just inside. Remove the 4 bolts then you pull the bumper forward to unlatch and remove it. When you put the bumper back on, insert the lower bolts first - otherwise it\'s a pain to get them back in correctly. For a temp fix we removed the ignigtor/bulb and ballast, took the wires going into the ballast (regular bulb wires) and connected a 9006 bulb. We removed the retainer from the ignigtor to hold the new bulb into place, it took some adjusting to get it set in place but it worked nicely. We will be putting new/aftermarket headlight assemblies in soon, but this fix only cost $25; it was a quick solution that took about 2 hours.
