new headlight bulbs
Does the whole headlight assembly have to be removed to install new bulbs - mine is a 2003 Booneville.

Yes, Remove the two 10mm hex head fasteners on the headlamp. Use gentle force to bring the whole headlamp assembly straight ahead forward in order to disengage the ball stud from the socket. This will give clear access to relamp.

It maybe a bit tough pulling the headlight assembly forward the ball stud gets a bit dry. Put a dab of petroleum jelly on it before putting it back in to help with the next time.
What brand of light are you installing?

Based on earlier advice, Siverstars were recommended. I also assume both high and low beam should be done. Does Silverstar make bulbs for the fog lights?

Thanks for all the help.

Yes they make fog lights #880, hard to find though? They're always out when I go looking :?

Thanks again - I will go shopping tomorrow.

Thanks again for the help.
