Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada
Do you need to replace the LIGHT or the LENS?
The headlight is not too much trouble, go to your local auto parts store and get the correct light replacement.
With power off, open the hood, (usually you do not need to isolate the battery, but I am always advocating safety)
Go to the light you need to replace, the LAMP is configured with a plug in the back of it, unplug the lamp from the car's electrical system.
Next, press in and twist counter clockwise to release the old lamp from the socket.
DONT NOT TOUCH THE NEW LAMP GLASS WITH YOUR FINGERS.
Your finger (everyone elses too) have iol residue on them that will shatter the glass when it gets hot..
Use rubber gloves or a paper towel, and replace the lamp unsing the exact reverse of the removal procedure.
Reconnect the electrical plug, reconnect the battery, and test the lamp.
If it is properly in the socket, you should not have to re-aim it.
If you need to change the LENS, please get the Haynes or Chilton manual, it gives much better directions than I could here.
good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza:
Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger
side (left). The headlight assembly
needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the
left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of
the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise
(to the left). Pull the pin straight up
to remove. The headlight assembly is now
loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that
still holds the assembly. Pull the
headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held
just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the
gasket out of the grill cowling. The
assembly should pull straight out. The
wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and
pull out the light holder. Change the
bulb. Do not punch your man-card for
credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second
time. Once you have put the L-pin in
place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch
I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.
