so when I went to re-install my headlights I cant seem to get them to sit right(theyre to high and stick out). I can't get the little tab on the bottom of the headlight in. anyone got any tips?

I have noticed it helps to put the side towards the grille in first then angle the outside edge in and push down and the same time to help get them in the tabs. also did you pull out the push pin things above the grille? that helps. it's tricky but once you figure out a method it's no problem at all

I always find it easiest to angle the interior side of the headlight inward and then push the outer side in last to get it to swing into the tab locations.

Well I did this today and to be honest I didn't have any problem at all. I inserted the inside corner first and then rotated in the outside corner and everything just lined up for me. Check to make sure the wires aren't getting caught on anything, make sure there is nothing in the slots where the tabs go, and just go slowly and have a little patience and you'lll get it eventually...
