Headlights removal

Recommended Posts

Trying to do the side blinkers mod. But unable to take headlights out. Did the counterclockwise 1/2 turn but unable to take out the headlights, almost broke the side corner. When I turn the headlight tool clockwise, the headlight goes back to lock position what makes me think the lock/unlock mechanism is working.

Any suggestions?

But why is being so hard? It should just slide out. The headlight tool should only be turn half counterclockwise, I turned it till it can not be turn any more, I'm afraid of braking the taps on the plastic taps in the headlight.

Turn 180 degree then turn BACK 90 degree per the owner's manual

3. Placesocketwrench(toolkit)ontheunlocking spindle.

The handle of the wrench should point horizon- tally to the rear.

4. Turn socket wrench approx. 180° A. The headlight is unlocked and pushed forward slightly during this process.

5. Turn socket wrench back until it is pointing vertically downward B and leave in position.

Ok. It worked on the driver's side but not on the passenger side. On the passenger side I put the tool horizontally towards the rear, when I try to turn it 180 it only turns 90, the headlight tries to go forward but it stops. I can also hear a "clunk". When I try to revers the action, the headlight goes back to the "locked" position but a "Clunk" is also heard. When the headlight tries to go forward/out, I try to pry the top of the headlight but it does not comes out.

Finally. Had to remove the front lock cover piece, plastic that goes from side to side. Lift the passenger headlight from the bottom left corner. It finally came out. However, noticed some parts of the headlight weather strip is going bad, king of gooey. Can that strip be purchased without the need to purchasing the whole headlight?
