I got some Silverstar headlamps. Does anyone have a detailed explanation on the procedure to remove the bulbs? The system appears to be a lot more complicated than what is found on most cars.

Thanks.

PS: This section isnt for questions, its for you to post up how you did something.


Remove the two bolts that hold the headlamp assembly to the bracket(should be 10mm)
Remove the inner upper grille fascia push-pin. (pin closest to headlamp youre removing, lift up on center of pin then remove both pieces)
Pull the lamp forward until the lamp disengages from the lower bracket.
Push the lower inside corner of the headlamp inboard until the outer lens releases from under the outer fender flange.
Rock the headlamp side to side and pull outward.
Disconnect the electrical connector.
Remove lamps from rear of assembly.

Easiest way is to possibly take out the entire headlight assembly by removing the (2) 10mm bolts on the top and then turn the assembly counterclockwise. Now disconnect the wiring and lift the assembly out. Now you have easy access to the bulbs. Replace the bulbs and reinstall the entire assembly by repeating the steps in reverse. Hope that helps

Thats what I just described, though in more detail :D
