There is an Access Panel in the wheel liner (you may have to turn wheel inward to access). Open access panel and locate Slider Mechanism, high on the back of the headlamp, slide it upwards to release the lamp. Then pull lamp forward away from vehicle. There is a Ball Stud and Socket holding the Lower outboard corner you will have to overcome. DO NOT loosen or remove screw that is visible through the opened access panel. On DS it has no effect on headlamp removal, it is part of the carrier assembly. Be sure to replace fender to headlamp wedge if it falls off.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
