Step 2: Lift the 2 retaining tabs located above the headlight assembly. With these clips disengaged, you can pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
Step 3: Disconnect the wiring harness from the assembly.
Step 4: Disengage the bulb wiring by depressing the tabs, and turning the sockets counter-clockwise.
NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply transfer the sockets/bulbs to the new assembly. This process takes just a few moments!
Step 5: Attach the bulbs/sockets to the new assembly and mount it by re-engaging the retaining clips.
