Does anyone know how to replace these bulbs? I have one that is burned out and cannot figure out to get access to replace the bulb.

You have to remove the whole headlight if its a 2002+. Remove the two pins that holf the headlight in place, you might have to remove the grille aswell.

Sorry. It is a 2002 Escalade. I cannot find the pins or anything else that holds the assembly. Sorry to be so stupid but, I cannot see what is holding this in place.

There’s one on top of the headlight and one on the side. The top one goes down vertical and the side one horizontal. # 2 on the picture shows what the pin looks like. I dont know how else to explain. unless i take pictures of it.

Crawl under the truck and take a look behind the bumper. You should be able to clearly see the housing and the wire attached to it. Disconnect the wire, then remove the bulb.

Man I can't get my DRL bulbs out! I got the headlight assembly out fine, but I simply cannot get the bulb out! :mad:


I don't want to pull too hard, I'm afraid I'll break the bulb.

Around the plastic base, where the bulb is held into the headlight, there should be a tab for you to press against the housing, then turn the bulb to release it. I know when I switched to the SilverStars and chrome turn signal bulbs, they were on there nice and good. A little bit of pressure while pressing down the plastic tab and they came right out.
