Step 1: Remove the two 5mm bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place.
NOTE: If you are only looking to replace the headlight assembly, you can disconnect the wiring harnesses and install your new assembly without removing the grille. However, if you are replacing the assembly due to front-end damage, there is a good chance that the plate behind the assembly is broken. For that, we'll have to proceed to step 3.
Step 2: Remove the 4 Phillips screws that hold the parking light in place.
Step 3: Pull the parking light from the front end of the car and disconnect the wiring harness.
Step 4: Remove the 10 screws that hold the grille in place. Once they have been removed, you can remove the grille from the front of the truck.
You'll have to remove the marker lights before removing the grille!
Step 5: Lift the grille and remove it from the truck.
Step 6: Remove the 4 retaining bolts to fully pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
Step 7: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the assembly and remove completely.
NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it may have new bulbs in place. This means that you won't have to use your old ones, and you can simply disconnect the harnesses, reattach them to your new assembly, and move forward!
Step 8: Reconnect the wiring harnesses and bolt the new assembly into place.
Step 9: Reattach the grille using a reversal of the removal steps.
Step 10: Reattach the parking lights once the grille is in place.
Step 11: Replace the 5mm retaining bolts on the top of the headlight assembly.
