1.FACE THE VEHICLE SO THAT BATTERY IS ON YOUR RIGHT;

2.REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC PIECE THAT RUNS OVER RADIATOR BETWEEN

HOOD LATCH AND FAN. IT IS ABOUT 53 1/2" LONG AND HOLDS THE HOOD

PROP CLIP. (3 PLASTIC PUSH RETAINERS & 2 SHEET METAL

SCREWS);

3.REMOVE THE GRILL ASSEMBLY UNDERNEATH THE PIECE IN STEP 2 BY

PUSHING DOWN FIRMLY ON 4 RETAINER CLIPS WHICH RUN ALONG THE TOP.

USE A WIDE SLOT SCREWDRIVER. PULL UP GENTLY ON GRILL ASSEMBLY. IT

WILL POP OUT. THE GRILL ASSEMBLY EXTENDS UNDER EACH HEADLIGHT

ASSEMBLY (HA) AND IT DISPLAYS THE CHEVROLET LOGO IN THE MIDDLE. MY

GRILL ASSEMBLY POPPED OUT EASILY AND ALL THE OTHER RETAINER CLIPS

ON THE BOTTOM AND BENEATH AND TO THE SIDE OF HA WERE AUTOMATICALLY

RELEASED WITHOUT ANY FUSS;

4.ON TOP OF HA SEE ONE TAB (ABOUT 1" LONG)ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND

ONE ON THE LEFT (THE ONE ON L IS CLOSER TO THE FENDER);

5.PULLUPWARDDIRECTION ON TABS. THEY WILL SLIDE UPWARD A COUPLE

OF INCHES AND WILL RELEASE THE HA WHICH YOU CAN THEN PULL OUT

TOWARDS YOU;

6.AT BACK OF THE HA, REMOVE 2 ROUND RUBBER CAPS (ABOUT 4" IN

DIAMETER)--ONE FOR LOW BEAM--ONE FOR HIGH. REVEAL BULBS. UNSNAP THE

WIRE HARNESS FROM BULB BASE AND TURN BULB 1/4 TURN CLOCKWISE

(REMEMBER YOU ARE FACING THE TRUCK)

7.REPLACE BULB(S). #9006 BULB IS GRAY-BASE, FOR HIGH BEAM ON

OUTSIDE. #9005 IS BLACK-BASE, LOW BEAM TO INSIDE OF HIGH BEAM.

CHANGING HIGH AND LOW AND REASSEMBLY TOOK ABOUT HALF HOUR. GOOD

LUCK.

ALTERNATIVE: IF YOU ARE REPLACING THE PASSENGERSIDE HEADLIGHT

JUST REMOVE THE AIR FILTER COVER AND PULL PLUG OUR FROM BEHIND

HEADLIGHT AND REPLACE. BE CAREFUL HANDLING LIGHT BULB. TO CHANGE

THE ONE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE JUST REACH IN FRONT OF THE BATTERY TO

ACCESS THE PLUG AND HEADLILGHT. TOOK ABOUT 5 MINUTES. ENJOY YOU

TRAILBLAZER, GREAT TRUCK.

I got to the bulb by taking off the bar that goes across the top

of the battery box. There is a brace that goes to the bottom of the

box. This required taking out 2 screws and 1 nut. I have medium to

large hands.
