Your 1996 Yukon's headlights should be checked every six months to make sure that they are functioning normally. Of course, if the headlights burn out while you are diving at night, you'll know right away. The headlights on your Yukon typically fail from regular use, although if there is excessive moisture building up inside the headlight housing assembly, you'll want to consider replacing the assembly before replacing the headlight. Replacement headlights for the Yukon are available from most auto parts stores. However, because there are a variety of manufacturers that make replacement headlights for the Yukon, you'll need the part number from the old headlight as a reference for the new headlight.
