Re: Head light casing

in order to get the headlight out its actually very easy. Notice the two little clips that you can pull up on. The attached pic has one of them circled in green. There are two per side. Pull those straight up and out.

After that wiggle the headlight and it will pop out and you can unplug the light easier and change it.

I would put a towel down under the headlight to keep it from scratching the paint.

Re: Head light casing

I replaced my drivers side the other night and it was stuck in there a bit. There are two metal guides that hold it on by the turn signal.

I would wiggle and tap that area gently and wiggle it up and down then pull out etc, keep at it and it should pop out. You can also push where the pins were at, you can see the part of the headlight the pin goes through, push there with your hands.

Re: Head light casing

not really other than put a towel under the light and just try to pull as you wiggle it up down/left right... cant think of anything that would hold it in.
