Fits Years: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011
All Chevrolet Colorado Headlights for sale

Tools required:
  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

Step 1: Lift the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Disconnect the wiring harnesses (2 - 1 per light) for each upper light assembly on the front of the vehicle.

Step 3: Disengage the retaining clips (4) that hold the front grille in place.

To disengage the clips, depress the clips and you will feel them release.

Step 4: Remove the front grille from the vehicle.

There are retaining clips along the bottom of the grille and on each side. With a FIRM tug, you will hear these clips release. Be sure to release one side first, then work your way along the bottom of the grille, eventually finishing on the other side.

NOTE: Any clips that remained with the vehicle when removing the grille should be removed and reattached to the grille. This will make it easier to reattach it later!

Step 5: Loosen and remove the 10mm mounting bolts (2) that hold the headlight assembly in place.

Step 6: Pull the headlight from the vehicle and disconnect the wiring harnesses (2) from the back of the assembly.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new sockets and bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply transfer the sockets/bulbs from the old assembly to the new one. This process takes just a few moments!

Step 7: Connect the wiring harnesses (2) to the back of the new headlight assembly.

Step 8: Mount the new headlight by tightening the 10mm mounting bolts (2).

Use the guiding tabs on the assembly to ensure proper placement during installation.

Step 9: Reattach the vehicle's grille.

Use the retaining tabs as your placement guide, and "snap" each of them into place. You will hear them engage.

Step 10: Reconnect the wiring harnesses (2) to each of the upper headlight assemblies.
