Remove the red dotted plastic plugs out. So you have wiggle room.
Once removed all the red dots, where the green dots are you can gently lift it past it, and pull it towards the front away from the engine.

SOURCE: Changing Headlight bulb

okay it is actually really easy althought they wouldn't want you to think so. It took me and my husband like 3hours to figure it out. But we did and now were like duh. If you open your hood and stick you hand down the front to where you are right behind the headlight if you feel around you will find that there are like caps over the place where you should be able to get your bulbs out. what you have to do is get a small flat head screw driver and pri the cap off and take out your bulb. It sounds worse than it is i promise and the only hard part is getting your hands on the caps

It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.

SOURCE: 2006 buick lacrosse how to replace headlight low

The bright light fitting is the same as the dim so take it apart fist to see how the cover screws off/on and the light comes out. Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. If not, then you need to release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin just like you were pulling a nail by the head. That should give you a little more space.

One high beam not working 2006 Buick lacrosse


Sampson, sounds like a bunt out bulb, which will need changed.
If you feel comfortable doing it yourself. Basically three screws, and you have to pull one plastic fastener from the fascia (bumper) and pull the bumper back a bit, and pull the assembly out. I believe it is in the manual, not bad to do. I will post a link to tell or show you how to do it. Press the helpful button

Need to replace low beam headlight bulb


Hello,

it's easier to change the light bulbs in this car than in a lot of other vehicles. The 2008 pontiac Grand Prix uses separate bulbs for low beams and high beams. The low beams are located on the outer edge of the headlight assemblies while the high beams are located on the inner edge of the assemblies.
To replace the low beam of the headlight bulb You will be in need of these instruments(Soft blanket or towel, Latex gloves, 9006 replacement headlight (low beam)), please follow the steps below:
  1. Open the hood to the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix after making sure the headlight switch is in the off position, and the keys are not in the ignition.
  2. Approach the headlight assembly with the spent headlight in it, and locate the retaining bracket (white) holding the assembly to the frame rail of the Grand Prix.
  3. Lift the retaining bracket up about a quarter of an inch in order to align the notches of the bracket to the riveted tabs on the frame.
  4. Pull the assembly forward away from the front of the car starting with the inner corner of the assembly toward the grill. Keep in mind the wire harness connection is still attached to the assembly, so only pull it far enough to reach behind and disconnect the plug located at the bottom of the assembly.
  5. Place the headlight and bulbs assembly lens down onto a soft towel or blanket.
  6. Disconnect the respective low beam or high beam wire harness.
  7. Turn the plastic base of the headlight counterclockwise a quarter turn to align the retaining tabs with the release notches. Remove the headlight from the headlight assembly.
  8. Put on latex gloves before handling the replacement low beam or high beam headlight. Oil from skin will compromise the life of the headlights if it contacts the glass bulb.
  9. Insert the new bulb into the assembly by aligning the retaining notches to the release tabs, and then turn the base of the headlight 1/4 clockwise to lock it into the headlight assembly. Reconnect the harness to the headlight.
  10. Bring the assembly back to the Grand Prix and reconnect the main wire harness at the bottom of the assembly.
  11. Align the guide pins at the back of the assembly to the locating holes in the front frame rail starting with the outer guide pin first and the inner (toward the grill) guide pin last. Lift the assembly upward while pushing back on the lens to push down on the retaining bracket.
  12. Place the key in the ignition and turn the key to accessory power.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

2007 buick allure headlights will not turn on parking lights work,high beams work. no low beams or daytime running lights


As you described the problem the solution is to replace the headlight bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting or low beam and one for high beams. the elements for the low beams are continuously used and are subject to burn sooner.

Open hood, look on top of head light assm, you will see a bolt or screw, these hold assm in. remove, and pull out assm. Turn lock collar, remove old bulb, install new, BUT DO NOT TOUCH GLASS END OF BULB WITH YOU HAND, the oil from your skin will make the bulb explode when it is heated.

1988 buick century headlights


To change the low beam headlight on the 2001 Lesabre, the headlight assembly must first be removed from the car. It is really quite simple to do. There are two bolts on the top of the assembly that must be removed - that is all! The entire assembly comes out and gives easy access to the low beam bulb. Give it a 1/4 counterclockwise turn to remove it. Plus in the new one (#9006) and reverse the procedure.
