    • Use the 10 mm socket wrench to unscrew the first of three 12 mm long 10 mm hex-head screws holding in the headlight assembly. The screw is located just to the left of the headlight assembly.

    • Unscrew the second screw located approximately 6 inches below the first.

    • Locate the third screw at the bottom left corner of the headlight assembly just behind the bumper and remove.

    • When re-installing the screws do not over tighten. Over tightening the screws will result in stripped threads.

    • Approach this step with the process of unbuttoning a shirt in mind.

    • Be careful if the rubber gasket is dry-rotted. Use vaseline to re-moisturize if necessary. Manipulating dry-rotted rubber will result in tearing.

    • Pinch the bottom of the rubber gasket at the left side of the assembly and remove it from the plastic "buttons" on the headlight assembly.

    • Locate the green turn signal wire clamp. Use a flathead screwdriver to push in the tab on the side and pull off the connector.

    • Now that all connections between the car and the headlight assembly are disconnected, it is safe to remove the headlight assembly from the truck.

    • Rotate the outer ring of the headlight bulb holder counterclockwise to remove it.

    • Carefully pull the headlight bulb holder out of its socket.

    • When installing a headlight bulb, do not touch the bulb with your bare skin. Wear gloves when installing a new headlight bulb. Halogen bulbs are sensitive to skin oils, and the bulb may burn out quickly if you touch the bulb during installation.

    • If you accidentally touch the bulb, clean it immediately using rubbing alcohol on a clean cloth.
