Tools required:
  • 19mm socket/ratchet or tire iron

  • 7mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Jack/stands

  • Needle-nose pliers

Step 1: Lift the vehicle and using the tire iron (or 19mm socket), remove the front tire.

This is located under the bumper. You can use a flathead screwdriver or needle-nose pliers for this step.

Step 4: Locate and remove the pins in the tire well that hold the protective panel in place.

Use the screwdriver to remove it.

Step 6: Disconnect the electrical harnesses from the posterior of the headlight assembly.

Step 7: Remove the two 10mm nuts and four 10mm bolts that hold the assembly in place.

Step 8: You can now pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.

NOTE: If you purchased your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it may have all of the bulbs included, so you won't have to remove the bulbs from the old headlight assembly!

Step 9: Insert your new headlight assembly and connect the electrical harness.

Step 10: Secure the headlight assembly by tightening all of the 7mm retaining bolts.

Step 11: Reattach the protective panel, reversing your removal procedure.

Step 12: Replace the protective panel's retaining pins.

Step 13: Put your tire back on the vehicle.
