You have to take the bumper off to get the headlights out. It is pretty straight forward, but you will need to get those plastic rivets to put it back together (like OEM).

I have the front bumper off, and took off the three screws to remove the headlight assembly, but there's a fourth metal stud of sorts that seems to snap into a plastic retainer. How do I get this apart. I tried yanking, but it doesn't come apart.

I just got off the phone with ACC, they said "pull harder!" Hope it doesn't break..

Had to pry them off with a screwdriver, but they finally popped out. Eating some eggs, then will crack open the headlight housings.

Hi there SpudRacer, I am helping my friend on her headlight removal, we tried that last night and no luck for that one. We had a hard time on the screws. We will try this one hopefully will work.

Did you get it out?? That stud on the back of the headlight housing near the fender is a real bear to get loose...
