Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
First the Brakes. Loosen the lug nuts, then jack the wheel up. Remove the wheel and locate the 2 bolts that hold the caliper in place on the rotor. Loosen the bolts and remove the caliper from the rotor. Before removing the old pads, locate the side of the caliper that the piston is on and use a C-Clamp to push the piston back into the caliper. Then remove the spring clip(S) that hold the pads in the caliper and remove the pads. Use a silicone pad lubricant on the back side of the new pads, (not the contact side), this lubricant will reduce the chance of "brake chatter". Reverse the process...install the new pads, the clips, the caliper and tighten the bolts. Put the wheel back on, spin the lugs up snug, lower the car then torque the lugs. You have just done 1 wheel! Congratulations!
Now the headlight assembly. No trick here. Very easy. First disconnect the wiring connectors from inside the hood that go to the assembly that you wish to replace. If replacing the entire assembly, there is a frame attached to the headlight that bolts to the inner body of your car. Locate all the screws that hold this frame in place, then lift the unit out of the car. Reverse the process to install the new!...Also most new assemblies will be accompainied by detailed instructions complete with pics...you should have no problem, however, this is a simple fix...take your time and don't "Force" anything. Good Luck I hope you find both of these solutions to be very helpful!
It is very easy. Remove the wheel, remove the two caliper bolts that hold the caliper to the wheel assembly. Slip caliper off the rotor. Once the caliper is removed from the rotor, take the spring clamp off and remove and replace the inner pad. Put the old pad against the new one and use a C-clamp to push the inner pad back into the caliper. Remove the C-clamp and put the outer pad into the caliper and replace the holding springs. Reverse the removal procedure. Before you drive the car make sure you pump the brakes to get rid of spongy feeling. It should take about 25 minutes all total.

Hope they are they HID.If hey are just Halogen Lights jack the vehicle up and remove the tire on the side you are replacing the light
remove the inner fender.You will see a round plug turn and remove then you will see the bulb
replace the bulb and reassemble.
But if they are HID LIGHTS OR You are replacing the whole headlight assembley then the whole FRONT BUMPER FACIA HAS TO COME OFF.
For the break pad replacement there are only two (2) bolts on the backside of the caliper just about 13mm. It is sometimes difficult to remove. Be patient.
