Brandon Flodman: My first video to surpass 100k views. Thanks to all that watched. #youtube
Edward van halen: Do you grab the housing and pull violently to get these pins to break
loose? Mine is impossible to get out this far?
aziz sa: Do you mind must unpack the front shocks so full I can take out the entire
Matthew Shaw: Thanks! I was able to get my headlight changed out within 30 minutes.
Lee Mychajluk: Thanks for this. I found this video after spending an hour and a half
putting new bulbs in my 2007 Avalanche (pretty much identical front end).
The passenger side light was easy, except it took me 45min to catch the nut
with the right bolt. The C-clip seemed to be bent a bit and it was a bear
to line up. Then it took me another 45 minutes trying to get my hand behind
the driver side lamp. When I finally got it out far enough to get my hand
back there, I think I heard some plastic cracking. I have no idea what
Chevy was thinking....
Christopher Gibbons: Well, after spending 10 minutes looking for the last bolt holding the head
lamp in, I decided to turn to YouTube. Thanks very much for this, had both
main bulbs changed in another 10 mins. You saved me a lot of time and
Carlos Nagaya: Whats the light bulb number?
rvwoody: I just used this method to replace the low beam/DTR bulb. With the top
bolts removed and the upper side catch popped lose, I was able to reach
down to replace the bulb in 10 Minutes. Thanks!
Adolfo Perez: One more thing I forgot to mention is that I'm trying to replace the
daylight running lights only.
Adolfo Perez: I have a 2012 suburban and housing does not come out I took all the
necessary screws out and still nothing. The fender, bumper and grill are on
the way. If u could've just zoomed out on the video to see how u took the
entire housing out from the bottom that would've been great.
Warner Smith: This is by far, the most thorough and direct method for replacing the DRL
lights at the bottom of the light housing unit. You do not need to go
through the wheel housing to access the lights for changing
Don Girard: it took me less than 30 min. to change bulb. thanks a lot.
بزون البزون: at 2:27 i stop and i go to my car , change blub and come back
Lenny Greyhound Guy: I hope the parking light isn't important because I plan to disconnect it
rather than take out the bad bulb and drive to the parts store for a
replacement with the light housing hanging loose.
Clint Lawson: The bolt below the light inside the inner fender is easily removed by
taking the inner fender lose. You do NOT have to remove the wheel.
Paul Nosty: I don't know hoe to google +. Can you email? did u not see the picture ?
Paul Nosty: There I made it my profile picture . Don't use google + really...
Paul Nosty: I can't get the bulb out! Iv tried Twice now and pulled really hard where I
feel Im going to crush the bulb between my hands and cut my fingers open.
and its not budging. I took a picture incase anyone can help out and
identify if it pulls straight out or what to do.
William Jones: I tried this with a 08 silverado but grill won't let the light housing come
free. I say a Chevy forum the guy there said he paid dealer to change.
Needless to say he watched the mechanic. The mechanic lifted the air intake
free and removed the bulb as you can easily like the driver side. I did
this works great once changed line the air intake box back up with grommets
and press down firmly. I definitely recommend this way no bolts or screws
to deal with.
Edward Crosby: So easy! Don't let a mechanic tell you different! My wife just changed mine
for me while I was gone!
Russ Carlisle: After removing the two screws that secure the headlight housing, I still
couldn't get my hand behind the headlight housing enough to remove the
daytime running lamp bulb at the bottom of the assembly. If you just gently
pop off the bottom part of the grill, you can easily access the bulb
without breaking any clips.
crlaw75: How did you get the pins loose?
Ken Graham: This is much better than taking the wheel well bolts and rivets out. I just
attempted this method without removing the side pins and was able to make
enough room to get my hand back there and change out the bulb. Too easy.
EliteKilluh34: Great video!
Brandon Flodman: Sorry, should have made the video sooner. Thanks for watching and your
feedback though. I did not go through the wheel well. Doing it this way
will possibly damage the headlight housing (hence the warning at the
beginning). I could be wrong but I see no reason for the under side bolt
other than to force more people to taking their vehicles in to a dealer to
have the bulb replaced. I noticed no difference in how secure the housing
was after replacing the bulb.
PET7672: Thanks man. That was awesome
Brandon Flodman: Thanks for watching and thanks for the comment.
Diane Boylston: I'm taking it that you have to remove the bolt/screw on the underside of
the housing before you can proceed?
crlaw75: I wonder if this will work for the Chev/GMC pickup truck models to.
PET7672: Awesome video man, thank you thank you. Will let you know how it
goes...loll. Just watched this. Encouraging
Brandon Flodman: That is an option and that is what the auto maker wants you to do. It just
takes much longer. I myself did not do that (reason for disclaimer). I
could not see any structural benefit to using the underside screw. If you
leave it in place it will break away from the housing fairly easily. After
doing this I noticed no difference with how well the housing is held into
Brandon Flodman: You are welcome. Hope it went well for you. Happy to help.
pheet: "MyMan"where you this past summer when i needed your vid? =8^D.i had to
learn how to do this the hard way..Very hard way..the first one was tough
cause i never did it before.but the 2nd one went real smooth and
fast."trail&error".but i notice you didnt go into the wheel well to get
that other secure bolt?at least i had to do it on my.good vid anyway =8^)
Brandon Flodman: Much easier. I think they do that to make more people take their vehicles
into the dealer to get work done. Glad the video helped you out.
Brandon Flodman: Thanks for the feedback. Happy this video helped you out.
mark chestnut: This is a great video, I had one of my DRL go out in my 08 Avalanche, I was
dreading it now I feel much better with your instructions. Thanks for
Brandon Flodman: You're welcome! Thanks for watching.
Brandon Flodman: At first they are a bit snug. After you remove the screws then you just
have to move the housing around some to get them loose.
