Headlight How To

I didn't quickly come across a How To for Headlights, so I thought I'd share some pictures of mine in case someone wanted to know how easy it is to change them. If anyone wants to add something or correct my mistakes, I'd appreciate it.

First, an overview. These are the 8 screws you need to remove to get the outer panel off:

The upper outer lights come out with a long screw:

The lower outer screws have two sets. One set outside, and one set inside once you take the light out:

The last set I took out were along the medial side of the panel:

Once you get that off, you'll see the light inside it's housing. You only need to take out one screw to get the headlight out:

The other screws at 9 and 12 o'clock are to change the light position. If your lights are aligned appropriately then don't touch the screws at 9 and 12 o'clock.

The little housing are held together with some tabs:

You just line those up and attach your new headlight. Then reverse the order. I hope this was helpful.
