Headlamp Assembly removal

Recommended Posts

Will someone please explain the best way to do this. I just received both left and right complete assemblies ($113.53 to my door cost from EBAY). When I tried to remove the old ones I ran into a problem. Looks like I have to remove the top cap on the front bumper, yes/no?ThanksHNK

Shouldn't have to, if I can remember right you can just push down a bit on the cover and it should give you enough room to get in by it and get at the bolt heads :shrug:

it's been almost a year since i removed mine, so i'm working from memory here:OE had the side marker light separate from the headlamp, that came off simply enough with the screws you could see, plus the pull stud. the head lamps had a bolt somewhere (don't exactly remember), and you remove that one, (it was fairly easy). then there's the one you can't get to without removing everthing--forget that one (it's and engineer's trick). that one is far under the battery tray. make sure the headlamp wiggles right now, if it does and it's only held in by the on spot far, far under the battery tray (driver's side), just pull it straight out towards the front of the truck. it is just a pull stud thingy, much like door panel retainers, only more durable. good luck ps. i'm fairly lit writing this, soooo.... good luck again.
