The procedure to replace head light assembly on buick lacrosse is as follows:--- 1)To remove and replace the headlight assembly you will need to remove 1 retaining bolt on the top of the headlamp assembly and 2 sliding retainers at the rear. 2) The carefully Pull up the retainers and that will release the headlight assembly and allow you to pull it out the front. 3) When installing the new headlight assembly make sure you have it lined up correctly before trying to install the retainers, don't force them it may get cracked . 4) Both the cover and the bulb are removed by a standard twist to the counterclockwise and replaced by a twist to the clockwise. 5) Now to the dim light. You have to release the entire light assembly before you can remove the screw-on cover to reach the light. 6) On the rear edge of the light unit closest to the engine is a white locking tab. Pull that tab up just to the point where it releases…pull too far and it locks again. 7) Next, locate the other locking bracket which is a metal bracket in the center-rear of the light assembly. This bracket is held down by a screw. 8) Remove the screw with a 10mm wrench. Lift the bracket just like you did the white bracket. You should now be able to pull (or pry) the entire light unit forward a little. Depending on the size of your hands this might be enough. Note:-- The turn signal is part of the headlight assembly on your 2005 Buick LaCross. 9) To replace the headlight bulb you need to remove the front bumper cover. 10)To release the plastic bumper assembly to give you a little more space. This is done by removing two expansion locking pins, one that holds the little plastic strip down between the bright and dim lights and one that is located inside a rubber bumper on the engine side of the light unit. 11)To remove these locking pins, pull or pry up the little tab in the center of the pin. Thanks.

One high beam not working 2006 Buick lacrosse


Sampson, sounds like a bunt out bulb, which will need changed.
If you feel comfortable doing it yourself. Basically three screws, and you have to pull one plastic fastener from the fascia (bumper) and pull the bumper back a bit, and pull the assembly out. I believe it is in the manual, not bad to do. I will post a link to tell or show you how to do it. Press the helpful button

How do remove headlight assembly on 2005 Buick LaCrosse to replace lighe bulb


I just changed the low beam bulb in a '05 Buick LaCrosse and found it really rather easy after researching it. I found no reason to remove the grill and the bumper cover, BUT you do have to remove the top 4 fastners that hold the grill assy to the radiator support, then you can work the headlight assy forward enough to work it out of the socket and turn it down so you can get to the bulb pockets on the back side. NO NEED to remove it all, just loosen it and gentley pry things forward enough to get the light assy out. ALSO> My supplier said his Wagner lighting book called for a 9006 bulb, but the car I worked took a H11. About 4x the money over a plain ol 9006 bulb but it might save someone picking up the wrong bulb. I hope this helps someone else out....Best of luck to you all

How to replace left rear tail light?


I did the same thing on my 2005 Lacrosse. The owners manual shows you how to do this. You have to remove the entire assembly, unbolting it from inside the trunk and then pulling it out from outside the vehicle, standing by the back bumper. It's not like the "old days" when you just reached behind the assembly in the trunck and uncscrewed and replaced the bulb. Then you follw the same steps in reverse, obviously, to reassemble the unit.

The same applies for the front headlamps. I had to replace one and it is a bit trickier than the rear because of gently pulling away part of the front trim. I found the reassembly more difficult than the diasassembly.

there should be 2 brackets at the rear of bulb housing, 1 may have a small bolt.....lift these up and the headlamp housing should come out. you will see how it works when you get it apart.
