Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
How do you get to the drivers side headlamp to change a bad bulb?
IF it's the headlight's light bulb you want to access to pull out old bulb and install new bulb, here it is:
The 3 bolts that secure the headlight body on the frame, also pull out the 4 black plastic clips that holds the grille-it's located on the top grille brackets (it's close to the top radiator area)
When you pull out the clips, gently pull the grille away from the top frame, then pull the headlight body away carefully to allow your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlamp body, find the wire that connects to the headlight bulb, use your fingers to feel the plastic 'collar ring' around the socket and twist it counterclockwise (just like unscrewing a lid off the jar) and pull the socket out with the bulb.
This space is tight for your fingers so it takes patient to get the job done.

The instructions are in the owners manual. I could not figure it out at first either but I did both bulbs in 30 minutes start to finish
