Question about 1998 GMC Suburban
Posted by Rob Johnson on
I just did this a couple of days ago. It's very easy. Open your hood, You'll notice right above your headlights are 2 hex shaped screws. Use a hex socket the same size to remove BOTH of the screws. Gently pull out the plastic headlight casing. The High beam light is located towards the center of the vehicle and has a red gasket and the low beam is located towards the outside of the vehicle and has a green gasket. There should be a blue clip on the back of the bulb, gently unclip and pull off the clip. Then unplug the lamp. After you've done this, gently unscrew the bulb so the parts line up and the bulb can be removed. Change the bulb reversing what you did to remove it. It only takes about 10-15 minutes maximum. Hope that helps.

Headlamp Bulb: Service and Repair
1. Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position.
CAUTION: Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments.
To help avoid personal injury:
- Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb. Leave the lamp switch off until the bulb change is
- Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
- Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
- Do not drop or scratch the bulb.
- Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb.
- Place the used bulb in the new bulb's carton and dispose of it properly.
- Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children
NOTE: Avoid touching the bulb or letting the bulb come in contact with anything damp. Oil from your skin or moisture on the bulb can cause
the bulb to explode when the bulb is turned on. It either comes in contact with the bulb, clean the bulb with alcohol or a suitable degreaser and
wipe the bulb dry.
2. Remove the bulbs from the headlamp capsules by reaching from the engine compartment and by twisting the bulb counterclockwise.
