How do you Change, Replace, or Install 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Headlight Replacement

Tools required:
  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Loosen and remove the two 10mm mounting bolts that secure the headlight assembly to the vehicle.

Step 3: Disconnect the wiring harness from the headlight assembly.

Step 4: You can now remove the headlight from the vehicle.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs and sockets, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model doesn't, simply remove the socket retaining ring by turning it counter-clockwise, remove the sockets/bulbs from the assembly, and attach them to the new headlight. This process takes just a few moments!

Step 5: Connect the wiring harness to the new headlight assembly.

Step 6: Mount the headlight by tightening the two 10mm mounting bolts.

Use the guiding tabs on the headlight to ensure proper installation.
