    Need steps to replace the Headlight Bulb

  • villainsdeed Sep 06, 2008

    Yeah, after removing the entire headlight enclosure (a pain, but the only possible way to replace bulbs), I found that it's impossible to pull the bulb out of the socket. I guess I'll just be driving with high beams on, unless anyone has a suggestion.

You need to turn the bulb left or right about a quarter turn until the notches line up and then pull out.

Headlight bulb replacement


Surprisingly, your owners manual is one of the best sources for information on headlight replacement and taillight replacement. I learned this a few years ago myself, it's the only repair instruction they put in a automobile owners manual.

'03 Cavalier driverside headlight looked dim. Replaced bulb, lasted 1 day, then it looked dim, too. Bulb socket had burn mark. HELP!


When replacing headlight bulbs it's best to wear gloves as the oil from your skin can actually damage the new bulb. Spray out the headlight socket with some electrical cleaner and make sure the bulb is properly seated with no bent wires on the the bulb where it inserts into the socket.

Cobalt 2005 ls headlight bulb replacement


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • 9007 LL halogen headlight bulb
  • Wrench
  • Gloves or clean rag
  1. Step 1 Set the parking brake and remove the keys from the ignition to ensure your Chevy Cobalt won't roll while you're replacing the headlight bulb.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood by pulling the hood release latch located under the instrument panel on the driver's side of the car. Locate the secondary release latch on the front of the hood at the center, slightly towards the driver's side. Slide the latch to the left to release the hood and raise it.
  3. Step 3 Locate the headlight assembly and remove the bolts by turning them counterclockwise. Set the bolts aside in a safe place, so you won't misplace them.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plastic fasteners from the headlight assembly molding. Carefully pull back the front fascia, or molding. You may need an extra pair of hands to perform this slightly awkward task.
  5. Step 5 Grab the headlight assembly and pull it towards the radiator at a slight angle to remove it. This should provide easier access to the headlight bulb and wiring harness.
  6. Step 6 Lift the plastic locking tab on the wiring harness to disconnect the bulb base. Then, disconnect the wiring harness from the bulb socket and remove the black retainer by turning it counterclockwise.
  7. Step 7 Disconnect the bulb socket by turning it counterclockwise. Remove the old bulb from the socket by firmly, but gently pulling it straight out.
  8. Step 8 Replace the old bulb with a new 9007 LL halogen headlight bulb. Put your headlight assembly back together by reversing the steps when you disassembled it. Use 89 inch-lb torque when retightening the headlight assembly

if you're dealing with a v6 ram air you first have to take off the black plastic clips that hold down the hard plastic housing in order to access the headlight. once thats removed you have to TWO clamps u have to pull up on EACH headlight in order to take off the headlight, from there u should be able to access your headlight and bulb.
