It depends, if you have sealed beam headlamps, there should be a frame around headlamp, remove it.
If composite headlamps, there are two hex headed pins in top radiator support, remove those pins. Take out lamp assembly so you can get at bulbs.Don't touch new bulbs with bare hands.

1998 GMC Suburban. Did an oil change about a month ago and then changed the spark plugs, but now the car won't even start??? I have no clue now.

When you initially turn on the ignition switch,(before engaging the starter) do you hear a humming sound from the rear of the vehicle for about 3sec's? (sort of like a motor running) If not, you have a bad fuel pump. (The fuel pump is located inside of the fuel tank)

Left hand main head light not working. replacing light bulb did not help.

If you have headlamps failing and bulbs do not do the trick, the headlamp switch is your culprit and should be changed very very soon. Let me know if you need anything else. I have diagrams.

I want to replace the headlight and the owners

It's talking about the headlamp bezel, the bezel is a band that goes around the parimeter of the lamps and holds it in the "headlight bucket". The screws may be a T15 Torx, if it looks like an allen head but an allen won't fit try a Torx driver.

How to replace the high beam bulb on a 98 GMC Suburban. What needs to be removed to get to it?

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
: 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.
3. Remove the 2 long screws from the top of the radiator support.
4. Pull forward the headlamp assembly (3).
5. Disconnect the electrical connector (2) from the burned out bulb assembly (1).
- Replace a high beam bulb with another high beam bulb. The high beam bulb has a red gasket.
- Replace a low beam bulb with another low beam bulb. The low beam bulb has a gray tip and a yellow gasket at the base.
1. Install the new bulb assembly (1) into the headlamp assembly (3).
Twist clockwise the bulb assembly.
2. Seat the bulb assembly with the connector facing down.
3. Connect the electrical connector (2) to the bulb assembly.
4. Install the headlamp assembly.
5. Install the 2 long screws through the top of the radiator support.
6. Tighten the screws.
