If it has sealed beam headlights (square) there will be four screws, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom that will need to be removed.

If it is a composite lense (rectangular) than there are two torx head bolts that need to be removed. They are the two that can be accessed through the openings in the upper radiator support. The screws behind the lense are for adjustment and should not be moved.

Once the two bolts are removed the lens assemble will pop out and you will have access the the headlamp.

    If you have the owners manual, starting on page 6-35 it will give you the step by step directions for replacing the headlights including pictures.

    If you do not have the owners manual you can get a PDF version from the GM website. Click the owners link at the top of the page, register, select you vehicle, and then click the manuals link in the center of the page.

    I have a further question regarding the model with the hex bolts. Three of the bolts worked fine, unscrewed and came right out. The fourth spins and appears loose but does not pull out. How much do I have to remove to see what is wrong?

    • Open the RAV4's hood and locate the headlight bulbs plugging into the rear of the headlight assemblies. Each assembly has two bulbs, one outer and one inner. Unplug the wiring harness from the rear of the burnt-out headlight, by pressing the locking button and pulling down on the harness.
    • 2Grab the rear of the bulb and rotate the bulb about a quarter turn counterclockwise to unlock it. Pull the bulb from the headlight assembly.

    • Grab a new 9005 (high beam) or 9006 (low beam) bulb by its plastic base. Insert the bulb in the rear of the headlight assembly, lining up the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the headlight assembly, and twist it clockwise to lock the bulb in place. Do not touch the glass part of the headlight bulb, as the oils from your hands can cause the bulb to fail prematurely.
    • 4Plug the wiring harness into the receptacle on the rear of the bulb

How to change headlight bulb on a 1998 gmc suburban?


There are 2 small black posts that stick up from the flat trim slightly behind and above the headlights simply unscrew them while lifting the rods up & out this lets the whole headlight come out, then you simply un-clip the plug & put in the new bulb.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

first see if you can reach behind the whole light and get to the connector, daytime running light is more towards the centre of the truck. if you can reach it, just turn it and pull the bulb out. if not then its either going to be bolts or long rods holding the light in place, remove those and then turn the connectors to expose the bulbs
