Tools required:
  • Pliers

  • Phillips screwdriver

Step 1: Lift the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Remove the Phillips retaining screw located on top of the parking light assembly.

Step 3: Disconnect the parking light's wiring harness and remove the parking light.

NOTE: If you are replacing your lighting assembly due to damage or wear, it may be a great time to replace the parking light, as well. After all, you already have it disconnected from the truck!

Step 4: With the pliers, lift and disengage the two retaining tabs located on the top of the headlight assembly.

Step 5: You can now pull the headlight from the vehicle.

Step 6: Disconnect the wiring harness to fully remove the headlight assembly.

NOTE: If you purchased your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it may have the new bulbs included in the assembly (as many of our models do), so you can move directly to installation - we just saved you some steps!

Step 7: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the new headlight assembly and move it into place.

Step 8: Secure the headlight assembly into place by locking the retaining tabs down.

Step 9: Reconnect the parking light, and secure it by tightening the Phillips retaining screw.
