Question about 2005 Pontiac G6

2 Answers

Is there a trick to removing the headlight assembly on a 2007 Pontiac G6? I took the push pins out holding the front facia and the two bolts at the top of the assembly but it is still secured at the corner by the fender. The owners manual says to pry out but I am concerned about cracking the plstic assembly.

Hi,

On most of the models, there are two jack screws. They are 7 or 8mm. Once the 2 screws are removed you will need to pry on the back of the lens, forward. There are two ball and sockets that need to be released by prying.

I am sorry but there is no trick.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Use a hair blow dryer to warm up the plastic and it will "pry" out much easier and without worry of cracking. Warm it up again when you reassemble.

How do i change head lights on a pontiac g6


Which ever side you are looking to change, you will find an 8 to 10mm bolt. Once you remove that bolt located near the headlight housing, you lift up on the bar that you just took the bolt off of, then once you have the bar up, gently pull out the headlight housing starting from the inside pulling straight out, thats it. Remove the bulb, and replace in reverse order.

How to change headlight lamp in 2005 Pontiac g6


To change the bulbs you need to first remove the 5 plastic pop screws on the front bumper. They're spread out at the top of the bumper right under the hood. Once you get those out, you have to remove the two hex bolts on each headlight. Then it gets tricky. You need to pull the light towards the front of the car until it pops out of the ball-bearing type mount on the fender. Once that pops out, you have to pull the front bumper forward while maneuvering the headlight out towards the front.

As per the manual it says as follows:---

Open the hood.

Hold the headlamp to prevent damage to the headlamp or to the fascia. Remove the bolts from the headlamp assembly. Remove the push-in-retainers across the front fascia. Remove the headlamp assembly. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab from the front edge of the fender.

Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.

Remove the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the headlamp bulb access cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the headlamp bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Disconnect the headlamp bulb electrical connector, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover counterclockwise, if necessary.

Remove the park/turn bulb from the housing by rotating the socket counterclockwise, if necessary.

Gently pull the park/turn bulb from the socket, if necessary. Install the park/turn bulb into the bulb socket.

Install the park/turn bulb socket into the headlamp housing by rotating the socket clockwise.

Install the park/turn bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Connect the headlamp bulb to the headlamp electrical connector.

Install the headlamp bulb into the headlamp housing. Rotate the socket clockwise until locked.

Install the headlamp bulb access cover by rotating the cover clockwise.

Position the headlamp assembly to the vehicle. Lift the headlamp upward to release the locating tab to the front edge of the fender.

Install the bolts to the headlamp assembly. Tighten the bolts to 2 N·m (18 lb in).

Install the push-in-retainers across the front fascia.

Close the hood.

----------This will help.thanks.Helpmech.

    How do you replace the headlight assembly on a 99 Pontiac Grand Am?


    1. Open the hood to your Pontiac Grand Am. Have the car keys on you, but not in the ignition and make sure the lights are in the "off" position.
    2. Step 2 Locate the splash guard and the plastic push pins that hold it down. It runs along the entire front frame rail. Removing the entire splash guard will make it easier to to remove even one headlight on one particular side.
    3. Step 3 Remove the pins by lifting up on the center of the pin. Pull it up about 1/4-inch and then pry the pin insert and pin out of the hole.
    4. Step 4 Locate and remove the two-headlight assembly bolts on the the top of the headlight assembly. Use the ratchet and a socket to remove the bolts.
    5. Step 5 Pull the headlight assembly forward by hand. Be careful not to scratch the lens of the assembly or scratch the paint on the front bumper.
    6. Step 6 Unplug the wire from the back of the headlight that is blown out.
    7. Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel counterclockwise (about 1/4 turn) until it releases the headlight from the back of the headlight assembly. Extract the old headlight and discard it.
    8. Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the headlight assembly. Be careful not to touch the glass of the bulb. Handle it only from the bottom.
    9. Step 9 Replace the bezel and turn 1/4 turn clockwise until it locks into place.
    10. Step 10 Plug the wire back into the headlight and rest the assembly onto the bumper gently so you can turn on the lights to test and make sure the headlight it working properly.
    11. Step 11 Insert the headlight assembly back into place. Replace and tighten the headlight assembly bolts.
    12. Step 12 Put the splash guard into place and place the push pins into position. Insert the pin and its insert into the hole with the pin still in the "up" position. When the insert is seated flush to the splash guard in the hole, simply push the pin down to lock.

    Can't get passenger side marker light out on a 2007 kia spectra


    There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.

    Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.

    1. open the hood.
    2.Remove the push-pin retainer's that secure the top of the upper facia and grill assembly to the upper tie bar to allow the upper facia and grill assembly to flex forward.
    3. remove ther bolt and push-pin retainer that secures the top of the headlight assembly to the upper tie bar.
    4. Gently pull the upper facia and grill assembly forward to access the bolt on the inboard side of the headlight assembly
    5. Pull the headlamp assembly straight out to disengage the the snap in retainer at the lower outboard back surface of the assembly. Turn the assembly so that the inboard assembly clears the front facia.
    6. pull the assembly out and away from the veh.From there you'll be able to access bulbs.
    be careful not to touch the bulb with fingers or oil in skin will blow bulb.
