Default Clearing the Corners

Sorry to bother everyone again but I would appreciate your responses. I went down stairs to clear my corners a few hours ago with the manual in hand on how to replace bulbs. Unfortunately I am quite... well... stupid when it comes to things like this and the manual just baffled me. I understood the pictures but not what to do. Does anyone have a descriptive way to remove the headlamp? Or a descriptive way to clear the corners. On cardomain, the same exact way to clear the rear lights was there, except with pictures. Something like that. Thanks fellas.

unscrew the two screws that are closest to the edges of the hl and pull forward.

make sure the headlight is not cold.. you want the silicon to be room temp so it pulls apart well

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ear+generation

the headlight is held in with 2 bolts and one ball and socket at the rear... take the two bolts out and pull towards you... hard

once you have the headllight out, pull all the clips off and start pulling apart... it takes time, and probably will be frustrating.. keep at it

my guess is that if you cant get the headlight out, that you are not gonna be able to clear it without several hundred pics...

Ohhhh thanks, somebody said take the screws off so I looked at those and said... those aren't screws! Alright thanks. Once I pull it off, the little pin thingies that I need to pull off... will those be on the orange part or ?
