Hiya
\015\012IF it's the headlight's light bulb you want to access to pull out old bulb and install new bulb, here it is:
\015\012You know where the 3 bolts that secure the headlight body on the frame, also pull out the 4 black plastic clips that holds the grille-it's located on the top grille brackets (it's close to the top radiator area)
\015\012When you pull out the clips, gently pull the grille away from the top frame, then pull the headlight body away carefully to allow your hand to gain access behind the grille/headlamp body, find the wire that connects to the headlight bulb, use your fingers to feel the plastic 'collar ring' around the socket and twist it counterclockwise (just like unscrewing a lid off the jar) and pull the socket out with the bulb.
\015\012This space is tight for your fingers so it takes patient to get the job done.

\015\012IF it's the ENTIRE headlight body you want to remove it off the equinox (since you mentioned you've removed the 3 screws) there's one more that still holds it down is the black plastic tab that's only accessible inside the fender! So to gain access under the fender, remove the plastic wheelwell liner part located underneath the front-left fender (driver's side) there's a small screw and few plastic clips you'll need to remove it to move the wheelliner liner aside to locate that headlight body's plastic tab on the fender frame, use a plier to 'unlock' the tab out of the hole.
After popping out the little rivets, you can support the grill out of the way. While the grill is out of the way, you can pop the headlight assembly, and get better access to it by laying the headlight forward, and to the outside of the vehicle. I found this much easier than fishing with my fat hands in the small space between the headlight, and the frame.
