Replace headlight bulbs

Asked by Jul 07, 2007 at 11:51 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 WT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can't see how to get at the headlight bulbs to replace one that is burned out. Surely you don't have to remove the grill to do this?

Thanks,
TR

I don't think you need to remove the grill. There should be clips that are holding the headlight assembly into place. One you find and remove those you should be able to access the bulbs. I would be surprised if removing the entire grill would be necessary.

Changed bulbs in my 97 many of times, never have I ever get to remove the grill, that's just too much work and not necessary. Open your hood in the engine compartment reach behind the head light the bulb is right there, twist and it comes out unplug old bulb from harness plug new bulb into harness and twist bulb back in. The battery side is a little more dificult, so go ahead and pull the battery out of the truck because it sits right in front of the bulb acess holes.
