Step 1: Remove the two retaining pins that hold the bumper cover in place.
Using the pliers, you can pull the retaining pins out. Use the towel to protect the paint through this process.
Step 2: Remove remaining pins found below the bumper cover.
Step 3: Remove the 7mm bolts found underneath and on-top of the bumper cover.
Step 4: Unplug the fog light and parking light.
Step 5: Using the flathead screwdriver, depress the tabs that secure the bumper cover to the vehicle.
These are found where the bumper cover meets the vehicle hood.
Step 6: Remove the bumper cover from the vehicle.
Step 7: Locate and remove the 10mm retaining bolts beneath the headlight assembly.
Step 8: Disconnect the wiring harnesses connected to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be 2!
If you ordered your part from Go-Parts, the bulbs are included in the new part. However, if you need to keep the bulbs that are currently in use, you can pull the bulbs and their sockets from the back of the headlight assembly and remove the lens and its casing.
Step 9: Reconnect the electrical harnesses.
Step 10: Tighten the 10mm retaining bolts on the bottom of the headlight assembly.
Step 11: Replace the bumper cover.
Simply reverse the bumper cover removal process.
