Behind the low beam and high beam lamps, on the back of the assembly, you can see and feel a round, cup-like, hard plastic piece. This is really just a rubber cap covering a plastic cylindrical housing, and is the "back-door" for lamp access. This rubber cap, or lid, can be pulled off with your fingers...if you can grip it just right and pull off. If this is too hard to do, then take a flat tip screwdriver and gently "pry" it off. Once you see how it is attached, your going to do a 180 and say, "gee, this is a pretty easy design" ! The bulbs do not pull out!! They are removed with a 90 degree twist.
If you are going to replace the passenger side low beam remove the air cleaner assembly first. To do this remove the cross brace, then the 3 screws on the air cleaner assembly. This will give you easy access to the bulb assembly. Test the bulb before you reassemble. ADDITIONAL OPTION: On each side of the assembly, you will see a small, thin release bar that will pull up (I needed a small pliers to get one loose). Once both are in the "up" position, the entire assembly can be gently eased out. You won't get far because the other bulbs are still plugged in. However, you don't have to unplug any of the other bulbs or remove the air cleaner. Easing out the assembly simply proves more room for your hand to get a better angle at the bulbs. I simply reached around and removed the old bulbs as specified above and did the reverse to insert the new ones.

SOURCE: 2006 Trailblazer Headlight Replacement

There are not two rods, there are two clips one under fender weild and one right above the light on top of the cover. Pull up on these two clips and pull the light forward a couple of inches and remove the dust cover. You have to take the air filter cover off to be able to reach in and replace the light. It took me about 10 min to figure these out but hope it helps out.

I need to change the headlight bulbs ib my 2006 Chevy Trailblazer.


There are 2 methods....1 envolves removing the grill, but it's too brittle


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

Passengers- remove the air cleaner top, at this point you'll have complete and easy access, same procedure as above.

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.

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.

How to change headlight bulb 2006 chevy trailblazer


See note below for passenger side. Remove the dust cover on the back of the head light assembly (black round rubber cover about 3" in diameter, just pull it off), disconnect the plug on the bulb, turn the bulb a 1/8 turn and pull it out. Then reverse the process for assembly.

***NOTE***If you are trying to replace one of the bulbs on the passenger side, remove the air filter housing cover and displace the filter for access to the dust covers on the back of the head light. 2 screws hold the air filter housing cover on, one directly behind it and one on the side (drivers side of air filter housing).

Replacing headlight bulb on passenger side. It's the main bulb.


Headlight assembly should have "allen wrench" shaped pins that hold the headlight in place. Once removed, the bulb simply twists out and unplugs.

I have a chev 06 trailblazer, trying to change light on drivers side... i do not see two rods to pull out, i do see that the lights look like its covered with black circular rubber


All standard headlight bulbs are halogen, if you get the numbers off the bulb you should be able to cross reference it at a parts store. If you have no idea what it is you can call a dealership and they will tell you exactly what you need, they will need the vin #.
