Default Say hello to Champaign!

I bought a 98 SSEi with 84,000 miles in near mint condition. This car was taken care of and driven with care. The previous owner installed gatorback belts to prevent slippage, so he knew his way around cars. Originally a fleet car in Detriot, then Oswego, IL...it then was bought by a couple in Aurora, IL. Now me!









Things are gonna change this time around. No chrome, no stripes, no stickers, no nothing....except a few things under the hood (pulley, K&N, wires, plugs, 180 stat...). But now I've grown up a little and decided to keep this baby in tip top shape for years to come, with the added joys of a few extra horses here and there. I'm a sedan driving grandpa in 20 year old shoes....watch out!

Few questions right off the bat:
1.) How do I remove the headlights?

2.) How do I remove these god forsaken bolts that connect to the stock airbox? I got them out partway and now they won't go back.

With those bolts, if I remember correctly there is some hidden stuff underneath the clips. I think you either got to pinch it together or gently pry it off. I had a PITA time to with those.
