Step 2: Remove the 6 retaining clips that hold the protective panel over the radiator area.
By lifting the center of the clip, you can pull them from the vehicle.
Step 3: Loosen and remove the two 13mm mounting bolts that hold the headlight in place.
Step 4: You can now pull the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
Step 5: Disconnect the headlight's wiring harness.
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 bulbs and sockets to the new assembly. This process takes just a few moments!
Step 6: Connect the wiring harness to the new headlight assembly.
Step 7: Mount the headlight by tightening the 13mm mounting bolts.
Use the guiding pin to ensure proper positioning.
Step 8: Reattach the protective panel by re-engaging the retaining clips.
