remove the battery or the storage box to see the screws that need to be removed,or remove the grille to see the complete headlight setup

If it is like the 1999 Suburban, there are 2 hex shaped rods comming out of the top of the headlamp assembly. You can see these above the headlight after opening 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... .

Correct - the 1996 is exactly as described for the 1999. I did it; it took less than 10 mintues to do both headlights. You may want to get a full set of four and do the high beams at the same time. No extra work, but they are different bulbs. The small socket should be 3/16".

Remove the headlight connector from the back of your 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo headlight. Take hold of the lightbulb, push in and turn at the same time, to remove. Reverse the process to replace the new headlight.
