Step 3: You can now pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
Step 4: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the headlight assembly.
NOTE: If you purchased your headlight assembly from Go-Parts, it likely comes with new bulbs (as most of our models do)! If so, you can move directly to installation. If not, you can gently twist the bulb sockets and they pull right out from the old assembly.
Step 5: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the new headlight assembly.
Step 6: Engage the retaining clips to secure the new headlight assembly.
