This video will detail headlight replacement on 2000 to 2006 GM SUVs pickups.

This replacement is similar for our 2000 to 2006 Yukons and Yukon Excels, 2000 to 2006 Tahoes and Suburbans, 1999 1500-series pickups to Sierra and Silverado, and 2007 classic series.

The headlight procedure is the same for all trucks that look similar to our example truck a 2002 Yukon Denali. It has the projector beam headlights. The procedure to replace the headlights is the same, whether or not you have the projector beam headlights or regular headlights. No tools are required for this and it only takes about three to five minutes.

The process to remove the headlight is very easy. Open your hood, locate the pins that hold them in, twist them, hold them up, and remove them to release the headlight from the mounting bracket.

Then, pull the headlight forward. Locate the low beam and the high beam connectors. Disconnect the connectors by putting your thumb into the connector and pulling.

Now the headlight is free from the vehicle. Get your new headlights and reconnect the low beam connector. Now reconnect the high beam connector, and then slide it back in the vehicle, making sure that on the pigtail of that low beam connector is pushed back into the hole so it doesn't get caught between the headlight and the mounting bracket.

Now press everything down and lock them back into place and you're done. Do a test and you're set.

Again, this goes for most 2000 to 2006 GM Trucks and SUVs.
