On the LTZ model the caps where the headlamps hide are round rubber caps approx. 3" in diameter.
They will look like hard plastic upon first examination but are actually pliable rubber and can be easily pried up to take off. The headlamps push in and turn to release, about a quarter turn. I wear latex gloves so if I do touch the bulb it won't hurt it. Unplug the old, plug in the new and reverse the process.
Good luck.

Hello robbe.
The lights are changed fairly simple, First of all you have to open the hood and look at the back side of the headlamp, you will see a screw on cap on the back of the headlamp system You may have to take somethings out of your way (Battery) I believe it may have to come out. Always disconnect battery by taking the Neg, off first and then positive, Now you should be able to get at the lamp by turning the lamp cover off counter clockwise, disconnect the wire by pulling tab up and unplugging it. Now you should be ready to remove and install the new lamp. ( Be Careful Not To Touch Lamp Glass With Your Fingers) Only touch the Plastic Touching glass will cause lamp to burn out premature, So that should get your lamp Changed. So I hope that Helps you out robbe. Take Care Bear001

Try swapping relay #45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel as a test. Relay #45 is for the low beams. Also check the headlight bulb connectors for signs of overheating.

High beam headlights don't work, changed the bulbs, and checked the fuses, help


This is going to be a problem with your light switch or dimmer switch. Replace the light switch and see if that resolves the issue.

Replacing headlights in my 2002 chevy trailblazer


You have to get to your headlights inside the hood. You turn your light bracket a quarter of a turn to unlock it. Then pull the bracket out, the bulb will be attached. Do NOT touch the new bulb with your bare hands. The oil from your skin will cause the halogen bulb to get tooo hot and will burn out. You might as well change both of the lights as well. The other one will be going out soon.

How to install headlamp on a 2002 chevy trailblazer


To change a headlight bulb in the 2002 Trailblazer: I writing this with the orientation of standing in front of and facing the Trailblazer.
Open the hood.
Remove the plastic cover that goes from the left to right over the headlight bracket, radiator, etc. It has 4 plastic pop retainers and 2 sheet metal screws. Remove the grill center bar that passes in front of both headlights. The grill and center bar come off as one piece. Start at one end and carefully pry it out, a little at a time. There are 2 clips at the headlight and 2 clips near the center top of the grill and 2 at the bottom. Two more in the other headlight.
Each headlight has 2 black metal clips that hold the assembly onto the bracket. One is above and behind headlight assembly, towards the right end if you're working on the left headlight (and visa-versa), and the other is under the fender (it pulls up OK, but may take some patience to push it back down when you're done).
Pull the entire headlight assembly forward. I only moved mine an inch or two. On the back of the assembly are round rubber covers. Pull off the one covering the back end of the bulb that needs changing. reach in and turn to bulb clockwise 1/4 turn and it will slip out.
Unhook the connector from the bulb. It has a little catch on it, otherwise it just pulls out.
Connect the new bulb.
Reassemble everything in reverse order.
As I said, the under fender clip that holds the headlight assembly on to the bracket may take some patience. It seemed to slip down OK once I had it in exactly the right position. Either that I needed to reach the required amount of cussing.
Good Luck...

How do I change the headlight on my 04 Trailblazer?


Hello;
Can't show you exactly, but is easy to take the grill out and change lamps while it is out! Grill has clips, you just have to un-clip it, pull two tabs on each side on the top and the whole thing comes out! (20 Minutes)
