Best Answer

You have to remove the lock plunger. The red plastic inset in the plunger actually locks the plunger onto the "threaded" shaft. Pry out this center piece and the lock plunger will come off the top...and the rest of the door panel can be removed.

How do you reamove the headlamp on a 2001 Cadillac Catera?

Your best bet is to remove center grill 1st. Then, access to the headlamp is much easier. You might also have to remove trim piece unde headlamp but, it simply pops in. Also, on those headlights, there is a center reflector piece inside the lamp itself. This is what the bulb goes in. Unfortunately, it is common in these cars that this piece becomes detached from the headlamp unit and floats around inside there...causing your beam to be up or down.
