You need to remove the headlight assembly. Pop the hood. There are four bolts. Two are right up front on the sill, and very easy to get to. One is down behind at the right and very hard to see. You'll need a T30 torx screwdriver with at least a 6" blade. The fourth one is the aiming screw, so take care with that, as you'll need to put it back close to where it was. The pros would turn the working headlight on, and mark the throw on the wall to make this easier. DON'T remove the two back bolts. They only need to be loosened. Once the back bolts are loose and the front ones are off, you can slide the whole assembly forward. You can disconnect the electrical at that point, and pull the whole unit all the way out, or you can reach around and do it in place. I recommend the former... Once you have access, there is a small clip holding the back access hatch to the light assembly. Open that up and take it off. Pull the electrical connector off the lamp you're replacing and push in-and-over the metal clip holding the light. The lamp is now free. Pop the new one in (it'll only fit in one orientation) and replace the clip and electrical. CAREFULLY replace the hatch, making sure the seal is tight and correct. Reverse the process. Be careful when sliding the assembly in and out to make sure you don't scratch the bumber paint (or better yet mask it off before you start). That's it. It is a 15-minute job, but you have to have the right tool (T30 screwdriver) and a bit of confidence.

I think what you are referring to is a "blackout" headlight used on military vehicles - mostly during WWII. The headlamp lens was covered in the same camouflage green as the rest of the vehicle, but there would be a horizontal slit to allow just enough light to shine through to help light the road, but not so much as to make the vehicle easy to spot -- particularly from the air. Nighttime bomb raids occurred a lot during WWII.

Stand in front of the headlight assembly, with the hood open, notice the two black locking tabs sticking up behind the headlight assembly, remove the two tabs by pulling on them straight up, this will release the headlight assembly and allow you to wiggle the assembly out to expose the bulb and connections.

I have a 95 and I believe the headlight housings will be swapped out in the same manor. There are plastic covers under the hood that protect the back side and wiring of the headlights. You must remove these. Then you will see 3 circular plastic pieces with bolt ends protruding from them which are used to adjust the headlight direction. They will have metal clips that hold the plastic pieces in place. They each have 2 holes which need to be spread apart, this will allow you to pull up on the clips and remove them. Now you can remove the headlight housings.

Open the hood and notice the two black locking tabs sticking up behind the headlight assembly. Remove those two tabs by pulling on them straight up. This will allow the complete headlight assembly to come out the front. You can now remove the headlight bulbs from the headlight assembly.

The bulb can be removed from the rear of the headlight assembly. Remove the boot first then twist the bulb to unlock it. If you cannot access the bulb you can remove the headlight assembly from the truck by pulling up the tabs on the two clips that hold it in place.

You may have to pop the grill out to allow easy access. www.trailvoy.com all the answers for your Trailblazer from enthusiasts.
