Remove 1 retaining bolt and pry out gently on entire headlight assembly. This will let you access your bulbs. Once you've removed the retaining bolt, you probably can't pry out the headlight assembly with your hands. There are two "retaining clips" for lack of the proper description that hold the assembly firmly in place. You need to "pop" these clips free. One clip is on the far outside edge of the lamp, and the other is closer to the engine, about 3/4's of the length of the assembly in from the outer edge. You can use a screwdriver to gently pry the headlight assembly out. User note: I wrestled with the process above for about two hours, removing the one bolt and trying to remove the headlight assembly by wiggling it by hand. I couldn't get it out. I thought for sure that there must be another bolt or screw holding the assembly in, but I couldn't find it. So, after much hesitation, I took the description on faith and used a screwdriver to create some leverage. The assembly popped right out and I was able to easily change the bulb.

My husband and I own a body shop. People always think they can fix a window regulator but it is not as easy as you think. I have been working in our shop for aprox. 25 years and I still hate working on doors. My suggestion, get a professional. They have tools that make taking the panel off, regulator out and also tools to put the regulator in, a whole lot easier. Sorry.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT?

In order to replace the headlight bulb on a 99-01 ga gt the ram air cover needs to be removed. After doing that, locate two metal "L" shaped clips from the adjusting brackets. No tools are really necessary, however it is easier if you use some needle-nose pliers. Also, when replacing the bulb be careful not to drop the metal piece inside the headlights, man that thing is HARD to put back in! Good luck cause GM pulled a real job on these!

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

there is a little round circle to unscrew on the back, take it off but rememeber which way you take it off as there is a wrong way and right way to put it back on (know from expereince) and then replace the bulb. Hope this helpsAnswerIf it's the same as a 1996, you unscrew the top screw for the headlight & then you can unscrew the bottom screw, but I ended up breaking off the brackets because the 2nd screw is located between the headlight & the blinker housing, where there's absolutely no room to put any tools. I had no way to get that 2nd screw off, so you may be lucky to fit your hand in through the top & just untwist the bracket, but it's just easier to take off the housing. I guess a friend got his off by using an Allen wrench? The headlight does stay in there just fine even with the brackets broken off on the bottom, just make sure you get the top screw nice & tight. I've had no problems after that.
