Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood and remove the 3 wing-nuts holding the headlight assembly in place.
IF the wing-nuts are tightened more than "hand tight", use the pliers to get enough leverage to loosen them.
Step 2: The headlight assembly will now pull straight out from the vehicle frame.
Step 3: Disconnect the electrical plug to completely remove the existing headlight assembly.
Step 4: Connect the electrical plug to the new headlight assembly.
Step 5: Align the pegs on the headlight assembly with the corresponding openings beneath the assembly position, and put the new assembly in place.
Step 6: Re-align the blinker and wing-nut pegs to ensure proper placement.
Step 7: Tighten all of the wing-nuts to ensure that the lighting assembly is not "loose" in any way.
Finger-tight is perfectly acceptable for the wing-nut tightness.
