Default Help Removing my headlight assembly.

I took off the 2 front clips, and i heard you had to take off these too screws with are really long, they both look like they need allen wrenches to take be taken out.

So i tried using allen wrenches, i got it a lil bit up, but none of mine really fit them correctly without some wiggle room.

Cliffnotes: How do i take out these darn screw type things circled in picture.


Also looked at older posts about people clearing their headlights using the search button, and alot of the links people post on write ups, i get a 403 Forbidden when i click it, and i really want to view them, it would make this way easier.

the bolts i circled in yellow are the bolts to remove the headlight housings, the ones you have circled are the aiming screws and lense clips

I've got the same setup (03 SSEI). Once you remove the bolts he circled in yellow, there is one harness to disconnect towards the right of the assembly (assuming you are in front of the car), that harness feeds all the lights and is the only one you have to disconnect. Then there is a piece that will pop out when pulled with the right amount of force. Be sure to pull straight out on the assembly though, so as to not snap this locking piece.

Does anyone know the size of the small bolt for the headlight assembly?

The bolts circled in yellow are 10mm. One is about 2.5 inches long and the other is about 1 inch
