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.

The headlights on a 96 Chevy Silverado are adjusted by turning the screws on the top and side of the headlights. It allows the lights to be adjusted for optimal night vision.

Remove the wiring harness from the back of your 1997 Chevrolet Z71 headlights. Remove the headlight retaining bolts. The headlights will come out. Reverse the process to install the new headlights.

There are 10 screws in the grille that have to be removed. Remove all of them and then you should have the grille out. Simple as can be.

all you have to do is twist out the one bulb you can get to from the engine compartment, then take out both torx screws from the top of the core support just above the headlight, these are very long specialty screws. pivot the headlight out so you can unscrew the other bulb, installation is reverse

You need to periodically replace the headlights on your Chevy truck when the headlights start getting dim. You can purchase replacement headlights from retailers such as Parts Source.

There are two adjustment screws on each headlamp. One on the top for verical adjustment and one on the side for horizontal adjustment. These are different than the screws holding on the chrome headlight rings.

How do I get the front grill off my 1997 Chevy suburban? I've removed the six visible screws holding it in place, but it still won't come out..

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.

There should be adjustment screws located along the sides of the headlamps themselves. You may have to take the bezels off of the headlamps to get at them (but I don't think so).
