How do you replace the headlights on a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada?

Each of the headlight assemblies are braced through the radiator support with a pair of retainers. The retainers for the right headlight assembly are in front of the battery. The retainers for the left assembly are in front of the washer fluid reservoir. Remove the retainers by pulling up on the retainer. With the retainers removed, the headlamp assembly falls forward. Reinstall the retainers to the square tabs on the headlamp assembly and the rivet on the radiator support

Can you play a flute with a front gap in your teeth?

Of course! In fact I did for about three years. But if you do have a gap in your teeth I suggest seeing the orthodontist. If you do happen to get braces you must mention to your orthodontic that you play a wind instrument. A common type of braces for people who play a wind instrument are called lingual braces. Instead of being glued to the front of your teeth lingual braces are glued to the back, they are a great solution for musicians, however they do cost much more than regular metal braces.
