Be sure you have the correct Light Bulbs prior to starting this

project.

Estimated time required the first time 30 miniutes. You can do

better.

With Engine off and Key removed from ignition Open Hood,

Standing in front of either Headlight Passenger or Drivers

Side.

Look Down ( Locate two each Tork Screws for aiming Head Lights

DO NOT Turn but for reference only ) They are bright silver in

appearance.

There is a Black Plastic Cowling over Upper Front Engine

compartment covering the Headlight Assembly Surfaces.

Locate the four ( 4 ) Two piece Plastic Expansion Fasteners Note

Total Eight ( 8 ) for full Cowling ( With Flat Screw Drive pry out

Center Plastic expansion bolt ) Remove second part releasing the

Plastic Cowling. Fold back the plastic cowling

Look down at exposed Headlight Assembly Surface ( Locate two

Clip and pull up unlocking Headlight Assembly.

The Full Headlight Assembly will come forward and out to expose

Reverse Process to re-install.
