Upside down L shaped bracket that is bolted to frame just behind headlight assy. Unbolt bracket, lift bracket straight up to unlock headlight assy. Headlight assy should easlier fall forward to replace any of the 3 bulbs

Replace headlight on a Pontiac Grand Prix


The Grand Prix uses separate bulbs for low beams and high beams. The low beams are located on the outer edge of the headlight assemblies while the high beams are located on the inner edge of the assemblies. With this in mind, locate the position of the burned out bulb prior to replacing it.

When you turn on your head lamp do you notice that you also have rear tail lights that are lit up as well? I have noticed on some occasion, both front headlamp assemblies could possibly be blown at the same time. One of the most important tools for checking to see if you have power on the low and high beam circuit will be a automotive test lamp, you can purchase these at most auto parts stores.

The low beams of my 2006 pontiac grand prix don't work only high beams work


mdsarnes, The first thing that I would check is the fuse for the low beams located in the engine compartment power distribution box. (Fuse box) GM does have a legend written right on the cover so you know which fuse to check. Also, when the low beams are on try and wiggle the connectors to each bulb. If these dont work, replace one bulb and see if it works. If it does then take the same bulb and try it on the other side. If you have a test light then you can test for power at the plugs before you purchase any bulbs. Good luck with this.

Need to replace low beam headlight bulb


Hello,

it's easier to change the light bulbs in this car than in a lot of other vehicles. The 2008 pontiac Grand Prix uses separate bulbs for low beams and high beams. The low beams are located on the outer edge of the headlight assemblies while the high beams are located on the inner edge of the assemblies.
To replace the low beam of the headlight bulb You will be in need of these instruments(Soft blanket or towel, Latex gloves, 9006 replacement headlight (low beam)), please follow the steps below:
  1. Open the hood to the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix after making sure the headlight switch is in the off position, and the keys are not in the ignition.
  2. Approach the headlight assembly with the spent headlight in it, and locate the retaining bracket (white) holding the assembly to the frame rail of the Grand Prix.
  3. Lift the retaining bracket up about a quarter of an inch in order to align the notches of the bracket to the riveted tabs on the frame.
  4. Pull the assembly forward away from the front of the car starting with the inner corner of the assembly toward the grill. Keep in mind the wire harness connection is still attached to the assembly, so only pull it far enough to reach behind and disconnect the plug located at the bottom of the assembly.
  5. Place the headlight and bulbs assembly lens down onto a soft towel or blanket.
  6. Disconnect the respective low beam or high beam wire harness.
  7. Turn the plastic base of the headlight counterclockwise a quarter turn to align the retaining tabs with the release notches. Remove the headlight from the headlight assembly.
  8. Put on latex gloves before handling the replacement low beam or high beam headlight. Oil from skin will compromise the life of the headlights if it contacts the glass bulb.
  9. Insert the new bulb into the assembly by aligning the retaining notches to the release tabs, and then turn the base of the headlight 1/4 clockwise to lock it into the headlight assembly. Reconnect the harness to the headlight.
  10. Bring the assembly back to the Grand Prix and reconnect the main wire harness at the bottom of the assembly.
  11. Align the guide pins at the back of the assembly to the locating holes in the front frame rail starting with the outer guide pin first and the inner (toward the grill) guide pin last. Lift the assembly upward while pushing back on the lens to push down on the retaining bracket.
  12. Place the key in the ignition and turn the key to accessory power.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

there are two L shaped metal rods/brackets that you pull out to remove the whole headlamp assy. dont touch the glass bulb with your hands. the oil from your hands can ruin the bulb or shorten the life.

Adjust a headlight 2005 grand prix


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
