I want to share how headlight replacement is on 94 - 98 Stangs is done, since I did it today. I did just stock replacements, due to cost restrictions.(and the price was really right)
I also installed 8500K Blue Xenons, and I did notice a huge difference (and
so did everyone coming toward me on the road!!)

Here's what I started with - everyone's got them, sad, hazy, yellow.


Here are the new headlights .....


Here are the bulbs(I put the stock 9007's back in the box)....


The first thing is to remove this clip...



the headlight is then held in by two more plastic locking tabs. Usually, you can push these in while gently pulling on the headlight assembly. If you have the right tool, you really want to squeeze both sides in while pulling on the headlight
REMEMBER, DON'T PULL HARD! It's only held in by plastic parts. Lube helps...


There was one tab facing downwards, to I used an old distributor wrench to pull up on the tab...



I should have done this before, but remove the one nut holding the side marker light on, and move the sidemarker out of the way...


Now, unplug the bulb, and pull the headlight straight out....


Install in reverse order, but make very sure that the adjuster assemblies are lined up on their tracks....


Lastly, put the sidemarker back on, and the clip on the upper headlight stud...




Now the right side was a little less cooperative than the left! Try to have patience, and avoid breaking out the 5 LB. sledge!!!!!!!



A little WD-40 goes a long way when doing this job.

Maybe one of the moderators will move it......

I'm glad the 99-up's are easier, I've never done one before on those.

It wasn't a nightmareto do on my 94, just a little challenge. I hope it helps others a little.

99 ups are cake, pull the two pins and slide it out.. no bolts to remove. You should have went with 98 style cobra head lights :( nice regardless. Remember to WAX THEM and they wotn fade.
