Remove the headlight cover by flipping the latch and then disconnecting the electrical harness connected to it. Disconnect the wire harness to the light bulb, you can pull on it. At the top of the bulb you can slide the latch and open it, be careful as the latch will pop out, the bulb should pop out.

Loosen the top two bolts that hold the headlight assembly.Do not touch the bulb with your bare fingers.Use something like surgical gloves.Disconnect the wire harness to the light bulb, you can pull on it.Put in the bulb, make sure it goes into the slot, by looking through the headlight.Once you set the clip then install the wire connector. Now test whether the bulbs are working fine and mount the head light assembly again.

After you remove the bumper and unplug the light

2) remove the blots on the bracket and top of headlight(circle on pics2)
pics 3 is of the bolts behind the turn signal.

Instructions
    • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.

    • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
    • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
    • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
    • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.

    • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.

Trying to change headlight bulb


Hello,

The 2004 grand prix pontiac houses 2 headlight bulbs per headlight assembly. The low beam headlight are located at the fender of the car and the high beam on the grill side of the assembly.

To replace the headlight bulb of Your pontiac grand prix, 2004 model. It is qiute technical and moderately easy to fix. There is no solution that cannot be done the DIY way, as long as You get the proper guide and You are technically able to do such works.
  1. Park the Grand Prix on a flat surface, apply the parking brake and ensure both the engine and headlight switches are off.
  2. Open the hood and approach the headlight assembly with the faulty headlight bulb.
  3. Locate the headlight assembly retaining clip. It's behind the headlight assembly on top on the fender side. Lift the clip upward halfway to release the headlight assembly.
  4. Pull the assembly out being careful not to scratch the paint on the fender or the lens of the assembly.
  5. Reach behind the assembly and disconnect the wire connection and plug from the headlight bulb socket.
  6. Turn the socket of the bulb counterclockwise 1/4-turn to remove the composite bulb from the assembly. Discard the bulb.
  7. Install the replacement bulb into the assembly (handling the plastic socket part only oil in skin will damage the glass bulb of halogen bulbs because of the intense heat they burn at), but ensure the tabs of the socket end of the bulb are aligned with the notches in the assembly before turning it clockwise and locking the bulb into place.
  8. Plug the wire connection back into the socket of the bulb before replacing the assembly back into place and pushing down on the retaining clip. Test the headlight bulb for operation before closing the hood.
Hope this was helpful. Thank You for using FixYa!!!
