Going on a vacation today after church. I was struggling trying to figure out this routine headlight replacement. I saw your message and many thanks. I will make it to the church on time and be beaming out a bright headlight stream all the way to the beach! The Outlook is new to us. My wife and kids love it. They say that 6 female design engineers created this vehicle. I believe it. It is comfortable and very convenient...except for routine maintenance.
Happy Fathers day guys!

Same problem with my 2008 Outlook. Just wondering what is the part number for the harness?

The GM part no. for the driver side headlamp harness is 20913209. This harness has the improved wire strain relief on the connectors.

I'm glad to see others are making use of this information instead of blindly getting overcharged by the Chevy dealers for such a simple procedure!
#21 of 42 Recall for headlight connectors
Dec 21, 2011 (8:32 am)
I went to replace the lo beam bulbs on my 08 outlook and found the connectors melted. I called the dealership and they told me there is a recall for it. I have it in the shop today and they are replacing the wiring free of charge.
I havent seen a recall for this on safecar.gov though?

It's too bad it GM so long to admit and recall the design flaw. The recall doesn't help us owners who've already paid the ridiculous $200+ fee to replace their bulbs and burned out defective wiring harnesses. GM should re-imburse those owners! If they don't, it will make it look like they deliberately stalled on this recall, so they could keep charging the absorbanent fee for a simple proceedure. The dealer said they had to remove the whole front bumper assy which I now know is a lie. I paid the $200+ for the first headlight then found the forum post with the simple proceedure. I removed my 2nd burned out harness in less than 20 min and then showed it to my dealer, they still charged me for the replacement parts and refused to acknowledge that it was such a simple procedure or a design defect. Instead they blamed it on the bulb which was factory original. Very poor business practice GM. Shame on you!
