Well I cant say that I know how to change the bulb because im still figuring that out myself, but the only way I can see is probably reaching through the bottome of the car to the light because it pretty crowded from up top and almost impossible to take the light out.

To change the bulbs in the headlights,(on a 2002 Z24) you need to remove the plastic splash cover the extends the width of the car over the headlights by removing the plastics pins that hold it in . Pull up on the center of the pins to remove them. Once the cover is off, remove the two bolts that hold the headlight in, then place a screwdriver into the slot for the parking light lens to pop the clip loose that holds the lens in place. The headlight assembly can then be removed, once the wire harness is unplugged from the bulb. There is a round retainer that locks the bulb into place. Rotate the retainer counter clockwise and remove the bulb. Don't touch the bulb surface as oil from a person's hands can cause premature failure. Just reverse these dirctions to reinstall the rest of the parts. This may sound difficult, but it really isn't. I out some fellow z owners.

If you can reach the backside of the headlight without taking out the whole headlight assembly, some have suggested this as quicker. Don't turn the Torx screws with the star shape, they adjust the light beams.

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.

The headlight relay on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier should be inside of the relay box. It is mounted close to the drivers side headlight.
