Step 2: Using the flathead screwdriver, remove the clip that is located against the radiator.
Be sure to pull the middle of the clip out first, making it much easier to remove the entire clip.
Step 3: Remove the 2 retaining clips, one on each side of the headlight assembly.
The retaining clips are beige/white.
Step 4: Pull the headlight assembly out.
Step 5: Disconnect the electrical harness from the back of the assembly.
NOTE: If you ordered your part from Go-Parts, your headlight assembly will include all new bulbs. However, if you are only interested in replacing the bulbs, you can remove the back covers and pull the bulbs from the assembly for replacement.
Step 6: Connect the electrical harness to the new headlight assembly.
Step 7: Insert the new headlight assembly into place.
Step 8: Secure the white retaining clips into place.
When taking this step, be sure that they have FULLY locked into place - you don't want your headlight assembly flying out!
Step 9: Replace the clip that secures the panel covering the innermost retaining clip.
