It's a serious PITA to remove the entire headlight assembly, is that what you want to do?

Did you get the two nuts that are on the backside between the battery and the light assembly? The studs are on the back of the housing and I think the nuts are 10mm (maybe 11mm). They are recessed in pockets in the sheetmeatal and you cant see them from above. They're easier to get at with the batteries removed but if you're good at braille you can do it with the batteries in place.

I might have a whole writeup...I will see if I can find it

For some reason, every time I see a Duramax pull, they pull their right headlight. I'm a little confused as to why it's necessary.

DI 7.3 Turbo
Extended or Crew Cab
4x4
Manual Transmission
If you are willing to part with yours on the cheap, help a college student out.
