How do you replace a headlight for a 2005 Buick Rainier?

This is not extremely easy, so if you aren't patient, take to the shop to have this done. Otherwise, here is how you do it.

1) Open up the hood and prop it.

2) Locate the headlamp support pins and pull them up about (1) inch, you will feel now that the headlamp assembly is loose.

3) Where the manual says to grab the grill and pull forward, forget it. Get a small screw driver and gently pry the grill away from the clips, you will need to release about 6 of them to get enough slack to remove the headlamp assy.

4) Unhook the wiring harnesses away from the headlamp assembly. There are (4) of them. This will allow you to pull the headlamp assembly out of the vehicle.

5) Depending on which bulb you are replacing, (lo beam or hi beam), remove the rubber cover by slightly twisting it and pulling toward you. It will come off and you can see the bulb.

6) Remove the wiring clip from the bulb, and turn the bulb 90 degrees and it will come out, be careful not to drop it.

7) Insert the new bulb and be sure it is locked in tightly. Be careful not to leave fingerprints on the bulb.

8) Reinstall everything in the reverse order. Good luck. The Buick manual is useless and they should be ashamed of the procedure they wrote for changing the bulbs.

Steve Stephens, owner of a 2004 Rainier.

Just to add this, Yes, you need to remove the entire grill. The Grill does not come off very easily..On the 2005 there are 8 clips, 4 on top and 4 at the bottom. The 4 on top are easy to see and a screw driver can release them. The bottom clips are not really accessible so you need to pull the grill straight forward, parallel to the ground to release it. If you twist it at all, the cheap plastic clips will break ( First hand experience. - It was very cold today so perhaps that had something to do with it! ) Perhaps a bit of wd40 or something sprayed into the clips will make the clips release easier. After gluing the clips back together I added a bit of lithium grease to the clips and they slid right in..Not sure if it will make a difference next time. Buick, why not just add 6 or 8 screws on those parts that you know will be removed from time to time!

What is trunking?

Trunking means that several connections in a network may be established simultaneously, and that setup of connections proceeds automatically using the channels available at the time in question. In this way many users may share a few connections, and if the number of connections is increased, the capacity of the network is increased more than proportionally. This means that an optimal trunking effect is obtained in very large networks. Commonly used with VOIP networks.

When driving your 1997 Daewoo Lanos there is grinding coming from the rear wheel drivers side and today there was smoke when you stopped. What is wrong and how much will it cost to repair?

There was smoke when you stopped - this smoke was coming from the brakes, the engine or the exhaust? What color was the smoke? Please be more specific.

Costs of repairs vary way too much to be quoted in a forum such as this - depends on regions, the shop, the cost of parts, the availability of parts. If you need a direct estimate, take this car to the Daewoo people - they built it, let them fix it.
