Hello mjmichgan,

1 Open the hood

2 Remove the radiator air baffle retainers,tilt the rear of the air baffle upward slightly,slide the baffle rearward in order to disengage it from the lower retaining clips.

3 Apply light pressure to the headlamp assembly & pull up on the retaining clips & remove the clips.

4 Remove the headlamp from the slots in the upper fascia support.

5 Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp.

6 Remove the headlamp from the vehicle.

7 Remove the rubber access cover from the headlamp.

8 Remove the bulb/socket by rotating counterclockwise.

9 Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb.

10 Reverse this process to reinstall the assembly.

NOTE : Halogen bulbs get very hot quickly,let cool before removing if the bulb was burning.Do not touch the glass of the new bulb,hold it by the base.

Reply to john's Post: Are these instructions for replacing the bulbs? If so that is not what I wanted. I have purchased a pair of Clear & Black Headlights from parts for your this is the complete headlight assembly for both sides. This is what I need the instructions for.
