Tools required:

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension

  • Flathead screwdriver

  • Panel Popper Tool


Step 1: Open the vehicle's hood.

Step 2: Pry and remove the retaining clips (6) that line the UNDERSIDE of the front bumper cover.

Step 3: Pry and remove the retaining clips (2) found by pulling the UNDERSIDE edge of the front bumper cover down.

Step 4: Pry and remove the retaining clips (2) inside the front wheel well. Repeat this process for the other side.

Step 5: Pull the fender liner aside and loosen and remove the 10mm bolt (1). Repeat this process for the other side.

Step 6: Pry and remove the retaining clips (6) that line the TOP of the front bumper/grille. Remove the plastic cover.

Step 7: Pry and remove the plastic clips (2) located on either side of the radiator grille.

Step 8: Loosen and remove the 10mm bolts (2) that secure the grille/bumper cover to the radiator mount.

Step 9: You can now remove the front bumper cover.

Step 10: Loosen and remove the 10mm bolts (3) that secure the headlight assembly to the vehicle.

Step 11: You can now pull the headlight from the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the BACK of the assembly.


NOTE: If you ordered your replacement headlight from Go-Parts, it likely includes new sockets and bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply twist and remove the sockets from the old assembly and mount them to the new one.

Step 12: Connect the wiring harness (1) to the NEW headlight.

Step 13: Mount the headlight by tightening the 10mm bolts (3).

Step 14: Reattach the front bumper cover.


Simply reverse the removal process. Be sure to re-engage all retaining clips and tighten the 10mm bolts!
