2005 Chevy cobalt Headlights

how in the world do you change a Headlight in these things?

I usually use a T15 Torx screwdriver and a Chilton’s.

[b]The lamp is replaced from the backside of the headlight. This may require the removal of a component or two. Such as the battery.

Once you gain access you’ll find some kind of retainer that holds the lamp socket in the back of the headlight. This could be a quarter turn collar or retainer clips.

When you install the new lamp, make sure you don’t touch the new lamp with your bare fingers. The oils in your skin can cause hot spots on the lamp, resulting in premature failure.
