Most of the bulbs nowdays are replaceable through the rear of the lights.

Open the hood, above the head lights are 2 "L" shape rods, turn each rod and pull them out, this will release the head lamp housing. Once it is out you can then release the DRL/turn signal housing by releasing the retainer clip located behind the turn signal housing. The exact details with pictures are located in the Owner's manual on page 5-55

I also cannot replace the bulb. A five minute job turns bad, and makes me feel like a moron. I believe the 2003 cavalier has a design flaw in that the access hole is too small to get the bulb casing out and in easily.

Alright - I took my car to the dealership, and I watched how they did it. They had to remove or loosen the three nuts that hold the light in place. Once these were removed, they were able to get enough room to remove and reinstall the bulb assembly. You should be able to to the same for yours.

Ed's response about the rear driver's side turn signal light on the 2003 Cavalier works. I had to completely take the three nuts off the rear light assembly, lift the assembly away from the body of the car, and then carefully lift up the rubber gasket close to the area where the socket interferes with the lamp assembly. By the way, there is a recall on 2003 Cavaliers for turn signal problems. I will be calling my dealer this week for details.

Lift up on the E-brake until the first click. This works for any vehicle (Chevy at least) with daytime running lights.

The daytime running lights are connected to the bright lights. It just reduces the power for the daytime runners.

DRL = daytime running lights

User Avatar

That is a good possibility.It also could be running lean and causing it to smell that way.If it starts running poorly or wont accelerate then you will have to replace it. Need 2 find out why IT's running Rich.

Detach the screw that attaches the heater duct on a Chevy Cavalier and remove the heater core. Once this is done you can replace the faulty heater core with a functional one.

You can replace the dome light bulb in a 2002 Chevy Cavalier by first prying the dome light cover off of the light. Then, remove the bulb and replace it by twisting the bulb from the socket.

A 1998 Chevy Cavalier is an interference engine meaning any timing failure will result in catastrophic damage. A free-running engine will simply stop running until and can readily be fixed.

A 2004 Chevy suburban should still be under warranty,unless you have custom lights, you can take it to the dealership and have fixed for free.

As a guess both low beams are burnt out The daytime running and high beams are the same light filament. Or the fuse or the relay for the low beams.
