Your grille and chrome bar are held to your truck with eight clips. You can see the top clips if you look. First VERY GENTLY!!! start pulling your grille until you start popping those clips out. Keep an eye on your chrome bar, because it is clipped into the headlight. GENTLY pull on the chrome bar at the headlight until the clips come off, then work your way over to the other headlight. The goal is to be take your time and be gentle until you have all the clips released. Set your grille aside(be careful not to scratch it). Each head light has two metal tabs on top of it, the outer tabs are slightly hidden in the fender. If you pull these tabs up, it will release the headlight from the frame of the truck(be careful not to let the headlight fall out and scratch your bumper). Once you have the headlight assembly out, pop off the circle rubber cover on the back of the unit. Your bulbs will be inside there, and make sure you don't touch the bulb when removing it. Just reverse the process when your done changing your bulbs. Don't forget to put the rubber cap back on the headlamp unit before you re-install it

How does one change headlamp for trailblazer? Owners manual doesn't show?? Thanks


Is the light burnt out or is the lens cracked (broken) ? If the light is burnt out, then the bulb is actually removed from the rear of the light assembly. this is done by opening the hood and looking at the rear of the headlamp. You should see a black plastic collar, that has wires going into it, If you grip the plastic collar with your hand, you should be able to turn it counter clock-wise a quarter turn, and then pull the bulb straight out of the rear of the headlamo assembly. If it is the lense that you are trying to remove then post that and I will display a schematic drawing for you to dis-assemble the entire headlamp assembly.... hopefully, this is what you are looking to do (change the bulb)

All you have to do is find the "round rubber cover" on the back of the headlamp, pry it out with a flathead screwdriver and the lamp is right there.
To remove the headlamp assembly on a Trailblazer, remove the plastic panel that covers the hood latch assembly.
Take the cover for the air filter in order to get to the low beam cover.
Take the 3 screws out of the air filter cover and remove. You will then be able to get to the back of the low beam lamp. The high beam is reachable without this hassle.

On the LTZ model the caps where the headlamps hide are round rubber caps approx. 3" in diameter.
They will look like hard plastic upon first examination but are actually pliable rubber and can be easily pried up to take off. The headlamps push in and turn to release, about a quarter turn. I wear latex gloves so if I do touch the bulb it won't hurt it. Unplug the old, plug in the new and reverse the process.
Good luck.
