I'd like to add one additional piece of info for anyone who may experience the same thing I did after replacing the headlight bulbs in my 95 Grand Cherokee and reconnecting the battery leads, the security system on the car would not allow me to start the car, and the headlights continued to flash. It was necessary for me to reset the Security System by inserting the key in the drivers door and turning it: left - right - left - right. After that it worked perfectly.

there is a bezel piece going around the headlight. you must remove this bezel (sometimes you have to remove the turn signal light as well) and you will see a metal ring that holds the light in place. be careful as there are two sets of screws. one set adjusts the light and the other removes the ring. drop the ring down and remove the light. installation is the opposite of removal.

hope this is right. that's how it's done on a '94.

On my 95 GC you just grab the headlight lens housing and pull it out. It has two plastic pieces that snap onto two studs that hold lens housing into place. Once you get it out you unscrew a plastic nut and twist and remove the headlight bulb. Then reverse the process to put it back.

I have a 96 Jeep. You just unplug the wire to the back of the headlight. Grab the headlight and pull. There are three snaps two on the bottom and one on the top. I used a little grease on the new snaps. Clean socket and push head light back into place making sure all three snap into place. It took me 15 minutes to complete the drivers side. You have to take the Battery out to get the other wire off the head light on the passanger side. I did not have to use any wrenches to complete this job.

Ok, My wife has a 95 GC that used to be my Dads.

Driver Side:

Unplug the wire from the back of the bulb. Locate the light colored ring that is around the bulb base (aprox 2.5" dia.) Rotate that ring until you can pull it off to the rear. Wiggle/rotate the base of the bulb and it will work its way out of the back of the headlight housing.

Reverse process to install new bulb.

Same procedure for Pass side, but start by removing the battery (I have heard you have to leave them disconnected for 10-15 minutes for the computer to fully reset before you reattach it)

Just did this 10 minutes ago

All of the answers above are Correct for 94-98 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Some have the bezel, others do not. Honestly you do not have to unscrew those shafts, it is a snap-on ball on the end of the screw adjustment shaft that connects to the plastic retainer on the Light Housing, 2 or 3 connectors depending on the model. Try not to break the housing, but it will come off with a strong tug or pry with a bar, first one side then the other. If you are just chamging the bulb then the above is also correct about untwisting the ring collar and removing the bulb, from the rear, (inside the engine compartment); remember to reinstall the ring onto the bulb and to not touch the glass bulb.
