    Not too bad of a project. The toughest part is the lack of pictures of where all the release points are located. I could not figure out how to remove the grill by removing the marker lights. I just couldn't see it. Then I saw the two Philips head screws under the plastic cover across the top of the grill. Once I took those out I realized the lights were just being held by the harnesses and the two plastic pins on the back. Once they were off, I could see how to remove the grill and ultimately get the lights out. The screw behind the marker lights was the easy out at this point. I reused the origianl mounting points with the old pieces rather than use the new ones that came with the lights. I felt it was easier to re-aim that way. Anyway, it's done and I'll see how the moisture situation is before I fully close it all up. If it weren't for this forum I would never have even thought to do it. :confused:

    I still haven't got around to getting mine in. You mention these mounting points and the stock hardware for the headlight assemblies, others have talked of them also. What exactly are we talking about here? Any pics? I want to get this right the first time! :p

    The headlights have three mounting points and they are press-in fittings. They look easy to install but tough to remove. Later tonight I will try and post pix. You remove them by squeezing the tab that goes through the plastic housing.
