Well first if it is a bulb replacement you do not pull out the front lenses! Access to the bulb assembly is from the engine compartment. The bulbs are held in a pronged clip that is attached to the housing assembly. That housing assembly is retained either by a screw or a twist off retaining ring. Depends on year. On the passenger side light remove the retaining ring. Then rotate the housing assembly counter clockwise. Once loose pull out of lens assembly. Pull the old bulb from the housing and replace with new bulb. Reverse procedure to install. On the driver side it will be necessary to pull the battery out of its retaining position. Remove both cables. Remove the retaining bolt and assembly at the base of the battery. Follow passenger side bulb replacement. Reverse procedure for reinstallation of the battery.

It takes a little while to do. You just can't take out a couple of screws. You need to take out some Wheel Well screws, Bumper screws etc. It is a very poor design on Chevys part. If you go to the Chevy Avalanche Fan Club Website, it has step by step instructions. Just use the search function. It worked for me. Just took a little time to do. I know the dealers tend to charge 75-100+ to change them.
