It's done from under the hood, sometimes you may have to renove the battery or washer fluid bottle, first pull off the wiring harness, the light bulb will be where the harness is plugged into, there will be a ring holding the bulb inplace, turn it about a halt or 1/4 turn to release then the bulb will come right out, becareful not to touch the glass on the new bulb as this will shorten it's life.

Need to instructions on how to replace headlights and header panel on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am

Why do you think you would need a body shop? Was the car in an accident? I don't know what you mean by a header panel, but any normal mechanic will be able to unbolt things that are not integral to the body of the car.

A bird flew into my headlight and broke it. There is a hole in it but the light still seems to be working. Can I just replace the cover or does the whole headlight need to be replaced. How much does it...

You cannot just replace the headlight lens. The headlight is an assembly and the entire assembly must be replaced. You can get one on the internet at many sites. You may want to replace them both if the lens has become cloudy and hazy or your vehicle will look odd with one shiny clean lens and one cloudy lens. They are not that expensive on this sire at $42.

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer

A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

Headlight Replacement not as bright

You should check the connection on the back of the light before replacing the whole thing.
