Just check the manual. It looks like you have to take the bumper out.

You will have to take the bumper off before you can remove the headlights.

Re: headlight uninstall and install

So my DTRL bulb has fallen off in my headlight. I seriously have to take off the bumper to get the headlight out? ****.

Re: headlight uninstall and install

bro it is not that hard, I mean time consuming if it is your first time but you have to understand that if you want you headlights not being too easy to steal. you can get to a few bolts but not the one on the bottom with out removing the bumper.

Re: headlight uninstall and install

I wont have time to take the bumper off tonight and may take it to a body shop to have it fixed. I really don't want the light rolling around in my headlight until this weekend.

Re: headlight uninstall and install

understand! for someone with experience it would take about 20 minutes considering you know which screws to remove.

Re: headlight uninstall and install

I bet the dealer will charge me $100 to get the headlight out so I can grab the bulb. Crap. Doesn't help that its a blizzard outside.

$100? ****, for that much money I would just go to the auto parts store and buy another bulb and install it. The other one can roll around in the headlight for all I care.
