    Can anyone tell me how to remove the headlight assembly of a 97' grand
    caravan. Does it require the removal of the bumper. I'm trying to
    replace my brokem headlight thanks

    If you just need to replace a burnt out bulb in the headlight assembly, all
    you need to do is look inside the front wheelwell and you should see a round
    plug which you push andturn. This will give you access to a spot where you
    can stick your hand up inside to reach the back of the headlight bulb
    assembly and twist it out to replace the bulb. You can also replace your
    turn signal bulbs from here as well. It can be fairly hard sometimes to do
    this as there is not much room for a big hand.It once took me 20 mins to
    replace a turn signal bulb because I could not see the tabs on the socket to
    line up with the tabs on the turn signal assembly. I could only use my
    fingers because of the space limitations.Oh yeah it was dark outside
    to...make sure you do it during daylight hours as it would probably much
    easier to see what your doing.....lol

    You do not have to remove the bumper for the bulb replacement but if your
    headlight lens is cracked then that is a whole different ball game and i
    have no suggestions on that one.....Good luck....

    Mic, so I do not need to remove anything (bumper ect.) to remove the
    headlight? This might be a dumb question but what is the header
    pannel. I'll try to find the three bolts that you mentioned thanks.

    Tom, I am trying to remove the whole headlight assembly to replace it
    not just the bulb but I appreciatte your trying to help anyway.

    the header panel; raditor support, is the top beam that goes from one
    side to the other if you look behind the lite where the wiring travels
    through it you will see the nuts 2 on top and one on bottom no need to
    remove the cover
