There is only one screw to remove that releases the mounting tab at the upper inner corner of the assembly. That screw has a plastic wingnut molded onto it so you can turn by hand. Once that is removed, the assembly can be pulled straight forward. At the inner bottom corner, a spring clip faces straight rearward. Pull with enough force to to release the clip from its slot. Only two "Fingers" hold the rear of the assembly in the sheet metal holes.

SOURCE: Removing Headlight assembly
There is a small hex headed fastener behind the headlight, oriented vertically. Loosen this and remove it, it is long and passes through the body of the light housing to threads below. You then pull the headlight housing forward, its still held in place by several friction fasteners so it may take a little force but it will "pop" off and then when you're through you'll have to "pop" in back in.

Look at the top of the headlight assembly. There is a plastic panel on top of the assembly that is held in place by two plastic pins. Remove those pins by lifting the center of the pin and then pull out the pin. Remove the panel. Then you will find two small plastic levers that will lift about 1/2 inch. They do not come out but they will release two studs that secure the assembly. After the assembly is released, slide it forward to access the bulbs you need to replace. Installation is the reverse of these procedures.

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.
