Well...guess that GM Customer Service Dept. trumped my answer by a long shot..lol.
I have an 07. What if the bolts are rusted and can't get them out?
@Jeni, I had to drill the plastic piece off after trying many things to remove the screws. When they rust over they bond with the clear plastic. I am currently trying to find a new way to cover the bulbs since the clear covers are no longer available.
