open the hood lift the plastic flap that covers the side of the head light you are working on.They are held down on the outside edge with velcro. The light that needs replace looking down from the top, unclip the wire connection to the bulb. Their are two small metric bolts behind the light bracket that go straight down,( 8mm?) and one at the top of the light bracket facing toward the front of the car. Remove them and remove the bracket. The lite has a non-replaceable bulb, You have to buy the lite complete. Usually at an after market auto store around $25..

Need to know first if you have sealed beam headlights (those will have the single bulb with the dual filaments) or composite headlights (those will have two bulbs) in order to answer this question.

You can buy just the plastic housing, but not just the clear plastic. The housing is sealed for waterproofing.

Need to specify which headlights you have... you either have the dual composite headlights, or you have the sealed beam headlight. In the case of the former, you rotate the harness 1/4 turn counterclockwise and it pulls out. You just replace the bulb. In the case of a sealed beam headlight, you have to replace the entire assembly.

A sealed beam headlight is just that. The unit is sealed and you replace the entire light. A composite is made of pieces that's why the name. To replace a composite you put a new blub in the back.

I recently swapped the other way, from Silverado to Cheyenne grill when repairing collision damage on a Silverado. I did not care for the plastic/ composite headlights, and the donorparts were from a Cheyenne. All of the bolt holes were there on both trucks to goeither way. After removing the grille, remove the spring/ buckets/ adjusters from the Cheyenne, install the silverado composite headlights (you will need four metric bolts to match the existing headlight bracket retaining nuts in the radiator support of your truck. You will have todo a little rewiring since the connectors are different for the sealed beams and the composite lights. I have seen companies on the net that sell a complete Silverado change over kit. FYI:Be prepared to battle with the composite headlights yellowing and getting dim at night if the truck will be parked outdoors. Areyou interested in selling your Silverado parts? I have a used Silverado grill and headlights I would be willing to trade.
