Head light change out How intrusive is the job?

Hello gary..... This is not a bad job. Here are the steps.

  1. Engage the parking break and remove the keys from the ignition before attempting any repairs. Make sure you've turned the headlight switch to the off position.

  2. Open the hood by first pulling the interior hood release lever located below the steering wheel under the instrument panel. Then, walk around to the front of the pickup and push up on the safety catch located in the opening beneath the center of the grill. Lift the hood and secure it.

  3. Unscrew the expanding fastener from the headlight welt, if equipped. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold it in place. However, not all Dodge Rams of this generation have this feature.

  4. Remove the first two bolts from the headlight assembly using a socket wrench. These two bolts will be on the inside near the grille.

  5. Remove the third bolt located on the outside bottom of the headlight assembly near the fender. You may find it easier to access this bolt from the fender well where you'll find an access hole after removing the fender plug. Use a socket wrench with a ratchet extender for easier removal.

  6. Pull the headlight assembly away from the front of the pickup, giving special force to the fender side. Be careful not to scratch the paint or jostle the assembly too much. You don't want to have to readjust your headlight aim when you're done.

  7. Disconnect the electrical connector by giving it a quarter-turn and pulling it straight out from the base of the bulb housing. This should remove it completely from the housing, so you can access the bulb.

  8. Twist the collar on the headlight bulb a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb base.

  9. Install the new bulb into the bulb assembly, reconnect the electrical connector and place it back into the headlight housing. Replace the headlight assembly in reverse order of removal. Make sure all bolts are secure before closing the hood.

  10. Turn on your Dodge Ram and make sure the headlights are working.

Remove headlight assembly from a 2001 Dodge Ram

On the upper grill side of the headlight assy. there
should be 1 or 2 push pins that hold the seal on the
headlight assy to the front of the fender. Also check
for a guide/push pin on the inner top of the assy on
the outer fender side. That should be all there is to
hold the headlight in place. Hope this helps.

Replace headlight

Instructions to change a headlight bulb on a chevy colorado or a GMC canyon : Make sure you have plenty of time , if you rush you will have problems so go slow and do it right the first time. > disconnect the parking light connections on the top of the parking lights . > carefully remove the grill by sliding the four plastic tabs on the top of grill while gently pulling , then just pull the grill off being carefull not to pull to hard . there are two snap connectors behind the parking lamps and three more along the bottom of the grill. > with a 10mm socket remove the two bolts that secure the headlights. slide the headlights forward . > this will give you enough room to change the bulb. I removed the connection first. I also put a clean sock on one hand to help handle the bulb without touching the new bulb. trust me on the sock, it helps. > line up the bulb prongs and rotate clockwise until you feel it snap. inspect the new bulb to insure it is properly installed and all three prongs on the bulb are now hidden. double check the bulb though the lens to made sure it is not cocked. >when reinstalling the headlight take a good look first to notice the two tabs on the bottom of the light . the tabs go in first then hold the light up and tight while you reinstall the two 10mm bolts. double check this to make sure both tabs are in . do not overtighten the bolts. check the lights . > use a flashlight to help align the grill push connectors snap in the bottom of the grill first then behind the parking lights then finally snap the four connectors along the top of the grill. > Thats it !!! take your time and you will have no problem. take care , Dave Dave's method might work but I just changed the low beam headlamp bulb on my 2006 Colorado in less than one minute with no tools needed. A simple 1/3 turn of the bulb socket from the back, (to the side of the radiator) and the bulb was out in my hand. Detailed directions came with the 9006 GE Bulb. Ron

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.
