Step 2: Locate the three 10mm retaining bolts and remove them.
These bolts are located on the upper-outside region of the assembly (beneath the hood), the upper-interior region, and lower-interior region.
Step 3: You can now remove the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
Step 4: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the headlight assembly.
NOTE: If you purchased your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely has the bulbs already included (as most of our models do), which saves you time! You can now move onto the installation of your new assembly.
Step 5: Connect the wiring harnesses to the back of the new headlight assembly and move it into place.
Step 6: Secure the headlight into place by tightening the three 10mm retaining bolts.
There are two adjusters on the back of the assembly. If you feel that you'd like to calibrate it, simply turn the light on, compare it to the other side, and adjust accordingly.
