How Much Does it Cost to Replace My GM Headlight?


When you have a broken headlight, the first question you may be asking is how much it’ll cost to replace it. We can’t give you an exact figure because there are a couple of factors that determine the cost of a headlight replacement:

  • The cost of the replacement headlight assembly: More complex ones are typically more expensive.
  • The cost of labor: Shops will charge you about $100/hour for labor, so replacing your headlight at home might be cheaper. The best way to accurately estimate the total cost of replacing your headlights at home is to figure out how much your time is worth on a hourly basis.

This article goes into more detail about the factors that determine the cost of a GM headlight replacement.

Should I Replace My Headlight Assembly Myself?

Basically, you need some experience or knowledge, a few basic tools, and a couple hours of your time.

Are LED Headlights Right For You?

When there’s a broken headlight, some people take advantage of the opportunity to switch to LED headlights. It’s a cool upgrade, but it’s not for everybody. This article will help you determine whether it’s the right decision for you. Keep in mind that GMC doesn’t sell OEM LED conversions, so you’ll have to get aftermarket LED headlights.
