Trying to change passenger side headlight on my 2005 CAVALIER (Only Cobalt was listed below). Back of headlight is blocked by frame. How do I get to it to remove the old one and put in the new one. Thank you in advance!

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Mary, It looks like you have to remove the headlight assembly before you can replace the bulb. This means that you'll have to remove the cover on the front half of the engine to get access to the headlight bolts. This seems like a lot of work just to replace a headlight bulb, but each manufacturer is different. In this case you cannot get enough access behind the light to remove the bulb without pulling the headlight assembly out away from the vehicle. I'm sure you can probably do this if you have the patience and the tools to remove all the screws. Good luck. Lori Johnson www.ladiesstartyourengines.net
