Step 1: Remove the retaining bolts that hold the front bumper cover in place using the 10mm socket.
You will find one on each side in the tire well. Two more (one per side) are exposed by pulling the inner tire well panel back. Two more are found on each side underneath the front end of the vehicle. On top of the grille, you will find 4 screws.
Step 2: Using the flathead screwdriver, remove the 2 retainers found under the front end of the bumper cover.
Step 3: Disconnect the retaining clips and pull the front bumper cover from the vehicle.
Step 4: Remove the three 10mm retaining bolts (two on top, one underneath the assembly).
Step 5: Disconnect the wiring harnesses found on the back of the headlight assembly.
Step 6: Remove the "marker light" socket found on the outside portion of the assembly.
Step 7: Remove the headlight assembly from the vehicle.
NOTE: If you purchased your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, your new assembly should have new bulbs included. This will save you steps in the replacement process.
Step 8: Reconnect the wiring harnesses and marker bulb socket to the new headlight assembly.
Step 9: Position the headlight into place and secure it by tightening the 10mm retaining bolts.
Step 10: Reattach the front bumper cover by reversing the removal process.
