There are two bolts holding the headlight buckets in, you will need to remove them to get at the bulbs. The lens will come out and you will pull the bulbs out of the lens itself. They are hex head bolts, DO NOT TURN THE TORX SCREWS THEY ARE THE ADJUSTING POINTS FOR AIMING.

How do replace a headlight bulb on a 2001 silverado?

If you open your hood and look right above your headlight you will see two rods with 90° bends that are retained by two plastic tabs. If you turn them so they are not retained anymore and pull them up they will come straight up and out, then you will be able to take out the headlight assembly and change your bulbs! I hope this makes sense and works for you!
