according to the manual you have to remove the front grill and plastic lamp cover then unbolt the lamp housing to remove it then replace the bulbs - unfortunately it is very vague as to the exact procedure for removing the front grill.
I dont think you actually have to remove the headlight assembly, you open the hood and get to the bulb through the back side of the headlight.
The headlamp bulb is removed from the rear of the headlight assembly. You have to remove the front bumber fascia to remove the headlamp assembly on this model. There is a plug that needs to be removed (twist one way, then pull) and the bulb should come out with it. Installation is reverse of removal. see the link below for more on removing te bumper to access the headlight.
Loosen the screws of the lower grill and headlamp assembly so that it can be removed from the fenders. Remove the upper grill fasteners and remove the grill. Take off the headlight housing. Remove the headlamp motor and housing. Take out the headlight. Now the fender can be unbolted and removed.
There are 2 hex shaped rods protruding from the top of the headlamp assembly. You can see these above the headlight after you open the hood. Just use a small socket (5/16" I believe) and unscrew these 2 rods and the headlight assembly can be removed . . . (it drops out of the front) . . . thereby exposing the headlight bulbs.
Hi,The headlamp bulb is relatively easy to replace in these vans. What you have to do is remove the turn signal assembly first, and then the headlamp assembly. This is done by removing 3 wing nuts that hold the assemblies in, and then pulling the turn signal assembly straight out, followed by the headlamp assembly. The headlamp assembly has to be lifted UP and then Out.Once you have the assembly out, the headlight bulb can be unscrewed from the back of the assembly and replaced. Be careful not to get any oil from your fingers on the new bulb, as that will heat up when the light is on and decrease the lifetime of the bulb.I have included a link below that shows pictures of the assemblies and how to removed them.Take Care, Greg
1. Open the hood. 2. Remove the front air deflector. 3. Apply light pressure to the headlamp lens to hold the headlamp assembly in place while disconnecting the retainers. 4. Lift up the headlamp assembly retainers to release. Important: Note the location and position of the headlamp adjuster retainers and the locator tab. 5. Remove the headlamp assembly, pulling straight forward from the headlamp mounting panel. 6. Disconnect the wiring harness from the headlamp assembly. 7. Rotate the headlamp bulb/socket counterclockwise to release. 8. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly, if required. There are (2) pull up clip retainers that hold the headlamp assembly in place...Both of these must be removed for the headlamp assembly to be pulled forward...:)
To get to the Malibu's headlamp assembly, first pull up on the two black plastic tabs to remove the headlights plastic cover.After the headlight area cover is removed, there are two tabs that when you pull up on them they will release the headlight assembly.got this from natwilson.com
Each of the headlight assemblies are braced through the radiator support with a pair of retainers. The retainers for the right headlight assembly are in front of the battery. The retainers for the left assembly are in front of the washer fluid reservoir. Remove the retainers by pulling up on the retainer. With the retainers removed, the headlamp assembly falls forward. Reinstall the retainers to the square tabs on the headlamp assembly and the rivet on the radiator support
The headlight assembly on a 95 Olds Cutlass Ciera is removed by disconnecting the wiring harness and removing the bulb. The assembly can then be unbolted and removed from the vehicle.
There are 4 screws located under the rubber on the edges of the headlight. These have to be removed in order to get the headlight out.
If you mean replace the headlight bulb they can be removed and replaced by opening the hood. Look at the back of the headlight - there are two separate bulbs for high and low beam on each side. There is a rubber cover on the back of the headlamp for each bulb that needs to be removed. If you mean replacing the entire headlight assembly then you need to remove the front grill and the front bumper cover.
Raise the hood. Looking down onto the headlight area you will see two silver bolts (approx 10mm) holding the headlight assembly to the upper fascia support (approx 8 to 10 inches apart). Remove the two bolts holding the entire light assembly in (side marker, headlight and turn signal) located on the upper fascia support. Once these bolts are removed the entire assembly will shift to the right for the drivers side (when facing the vehicle) or to the left for the passenger side (when facing the vehicle). Once the assembly is removed you will have access to the wires/bulb. Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly. Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle. Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise. Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly. To ressemble simply do the reverse. These instructions sound complicated but the procedure is not that difficult. If your bulb burned out due to humidity or water in the lens, then this problem must be remedied (Headlamp replaced $65 Ebay -new part)or the new bulb will be short lived. (courtesy of another posting) Hope this helps. "G"
you have to remove the whole headlamp assembly to get to the turn signal bulb pull the headlight assembly straight out it is fairly easy There are two wing nuts on top of the unit that must be removed.
Open the hood there are to locking pin above each headlight assembly. Turn them you unlock them and pull the up. Once they are removed the headlight assembly can be removed.
Per a manual: Remove screws holding the headlamp assembly, pull the headlamp assembly, disconnect the parking lamp socket from the assembly, replace the bulb, and reverse the above steps. User comments: The battery must be removed first as it is in the way on at least one side, and as the headlight bezel is held by two screws at its top, under the hood. Removing them does not allow the headlight assembly to come out, they just loosen the bezel a bit at the top.
There are two 10 mm bolts that are on top of the headlamp assembly. Remove those bolts. Then gently pull the assembly out of the frame of the vehicle. Remove the wire harness, and the lamp assembly. Then there are two plastic threaded 10 mm bolts that need to be removed..a deep well socket will be needed for this, as well as a 10 mm nut. It can be removed with the same socket. Then the headlamp will be separated from the "turning light". To install, just do the opposite.
Hi, There are three (3) wing nuts that have to be removed to take the headlight assembly out. Once they are removed, you simply pull the assembly up & out. I have included a link that shows these wing nuts and the process of taking the headlight assembly out. Good Luck!
First, remove the plastic cover that covers the headlight/grill area. Once that is removed, there are two tabs that stick up on both sides of the headlight assembly. Use a pliers to gently pull them up and the assembly will pull out. When you pull the bulb out of the assembly, be careful not to break the tabs off the plastic ring that holds the bulb in place. Reverse the procedure.
Open the hood, remove the two locks that hold the headlight assembly in place, with the two locks removed you can wiggle the headlight assembly out and gain access to the back side of the assembly to remove and replace the headlight bulb.
The headlamp assembly just snaps on and off. There are four attachments (one in each corner). Give the assembly a firm pull out, and it should pop on out. Additional Info: If your lens assembly is like mine then you'll need to pop the hood and remove the anchor screws - one on the top of the lens near the fender and the other is below the headlight lens near the center of the lens assembly. After the two screws are removed it simply pulls out.
Hi, You have to remove the entire headlight assembly to get to the bulb, which is located in the back of the assembly. There are three wing nuts that hold the assembly in, and those will have to be removed. Then remove the side signal assembly first, then the headlight assembly. I have provided a link that shows exactly how this is done and where these wing nuts are. Good Luck
to remove the headlamp assembly, open the hood of the vehicle. On top of the headlights you will see two l-shaped pins that run through the top. Turn these clips a quarter of a turn and then they should pull straight up. Once the pins are removed, the headlamp should come right out.
Well you can take two approches to changing the headlamp bulbs. First, although it is a tight fit you can pop the hood. remove the black plastic guards(for lack of a better word) you will see what im talking about, and reach your hand in the rear of the head lamp, remove the rubber cover and pull the bulb out and change. Another way is to remove the grille, and trim that fits underneath the headlamp, and remove the whole headlight assembly. it is alot easier to see what you are doing with the headlamp assembly removed
On the first body style Avalanche with the cladding there is a tab on the front turn signal housing that you need to press and remove the assembly. Once you have that out, there will be two metal bars on the headlamp assembly that you need to turn adn pull straight out. Once these have been removed the headlight assembly should come out to change the bulb or what ever you were doing.
Pop the hood, behind the the headlight is a little cover, pop it off and turn the knob left or right if you want to raise or lower the headlamp. There is also another adjustment underneath the actual headlamp itself. To access it the headlamp surround needs to be removed with a Philips head screwdriver. The small round headed screw can be adjusted by hand.
To replace the daytime running light on a 2004 Suburban, you will have to first remove the two metal pins that can be found on top of the headlight. The headlight assembly can be removed next. Pull out the plugs that are connected to the headlight assembly. Replace the bulbs and then reconnect the assembly.
