REMOVAL

Make sure the headlamp switch and autolamp time delay switch (if equipped) are in the OFF position.

WARNING: THE REPLACEABLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE. THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB MAY SHATTER IF THE GLASS ENVELOPE IS SCRATCHED OR THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB IS DROPPED. HANDLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CAREFULLY. GRASP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB ONLY BY ITS PLASTIC BASE. AVOID TOUCHING GLASS ENVELOPE. KEEP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Disconnect headlamp dash panel junction wire.
Use a 9 mm deepwell socket to remove the three retainers on the two headlamp adjusting screws holding the headlamp to radiator grille opening panel reinforcement.
Remove headlamp from vehicle and remove headlamp bulb and retainers.

INSTALLATION

Follow removal procedure in reverse order.
