Hello banviebtoy,

 

Are you attempting to replace the halogen bulbs, or the entire headlamp assembly?

I have instructions for replacing the bulbs, but unfortunately I do not show replacing the assembly in my database.

 

Here are the bulb replacement procedures.

  2. Install in the reverse order of removal.
