Hi, viewers! For the 2008 Acadia headlights replacements, standard procedures require removal of the front bumper fascia for ease of movement and effective replacement or repair jobs. But in actual practice, this isn't always so. As much as we can manage, we dont have to reach to that point of bumper removal unless absolutely necessary. The alternative approach will require some patience and wits to work your way around ,as fast and as effective as possible. Practice makes perfect as they say. : )

How to change a headlight on a 2006 cadillac sts


To remove the headlight assembly you need to remove the front bumper cover. There are two bolts and one stud with a nut that hold the headlight in. Two of the fasteners are behind the bumper cover.If you remove these the headlight must come out.

Replacing the front lights on a Nissan Almera.


I needed my headlight bulb changed. The repair shop quoted $125. Their repair manual said the front bumper had to be removed to access the light. But they found a work-around: by removing the battery, they were able to get at the light and replace the bulb. Only cost me $46 to replace my $5 bulb!

How to replace headllight lamp


I know your frustration! I cannot believe the complexity of changing the headlights. Chevy has tried to make this a dealer item only just to change a headlight bulb. I will try to explain the procedure unfortunately I do not have photos. First you will need to remove the wheel well liner (two bolts and two plastic push pins). Pull the wheel well housing back (you will need to turn the wheel/tire to gain access) and using a 7mm socket remove the plastic support piece that holds the bumper in place (two bolts). Pull the corner of the bumper down until you can locate the bottom bracket of the headlight assembly that is held by a 10mm bolt. Remove it. (Oh did I mention this is a two person job!) Next move to the front of the vehicle (hood up) and remove all the 10mm bolts holding the upper part of the grill (I think there are eight of them). Now remove the obvious top two bolts on the headlight assembly! With two people - one to work the headlight assembly and one to push down the bumper and pull out on the grill assemble, slowly and carefully pull the headlight assembly straight forward. You will need to be mindfully of the small tabs on the headlight assembly that like to get caught on bumper/grill. If you are just replacing the bulb, you should be able to move the headlight assemble far enough forward to gain access to the bulbs without totally removing the headlight assembly. What a ***** job! SHAME on GM.

Changing healights


I had to change my bulb on the same side of my 2001 sentra. I ended up taking the whole headlight out to get to the socket. It was a little more work with removing some of the front bumper parts, but well worth it to have a headlight! If you go this route, make sure to buy some new plugs to hold the bumper parts on - they are one-time use only. Take one in with you to make sure you get the right size, and you should be good to go.
