How to change the headlight bulbs without removing the entire front end on a GWM Florid

The usual way is to undo the covers at the back of the head lights, remove the wiring connector and then change the bulb. On some cars you may have to remove one or two items that restrict access to the back of the headlight, and very occasionally you have to remove the headlight to gain access. What is the problem with this vehicle.

Headlight Replacement (Envoy)

Lift hood, at top of each headlight assembly look for two L-shaped tabs. Pull these tabs straight up, this will release the headlight assembly. Lift assembly forward to gain access to rear of assembly. There two rubber caps, the top one is for access to the low beam and the bottom for the high beam bulbs. Remove the appropriate cap, grasp bulb socket and turn CCW to release. Unplug bulb from socket by releasing catch on side of socket, install new bulb, DO NOT touch bulb glass with fingers. Reverse steps to re-assemble.

if it is a plastic headlight housing you can change just the bulbs lift the hood up and look behind the headlight housing for the access area. unplug the connector and turn the plastic ring off 1/4 turn to the left, then pull the bulb out of socket area. reverse going back together.
if no access panel it may have 2 plastic clips on top of headlight housings pull up on them about 1/2 way and entire headlight housing comes off to gain access for the first part of my notes.
good luck steve

this can be difficult on some cars you almost have to take it to the dealer. all i can say is you may have to disassemble things to gain access. maybe a battery of fluid bottle or even the headlight may have to have bolts removed. Once you gain access the connector just pulls off and the bulb should turn counter clockwise the come out. on some there is a ring that you turn andremove then pull the bulb out. good luck

You access the bulb plugs on the backside of the headlamp. Most likely will be halogen bulbs, so be careful not to touch the glass of the new bulb.
