I noticed that the headlight lenses were so weatherbeaten that they hindered the light going through making it difficult to drive int he dark. So, I bought new headlamps from Whitneys.
Have not idea what the quickest/easiest way is to replace the them without dismembering the entire front of the car. Tried consulting CHilton's but there are no instructions. Do I need to take out the grill? The battery?

Hi Phil,

Thank you for the donation.

To replace the headlights, you would need to remove the front grille and bumper face to get at the lower bolts.

Sorry I do not have any diagrams to show you how it is done. The bumper has many clips that has to be removed by pulling out the center portion slightly to release.

Removing the battery would make it easier to plug or unplug the bulb wires.
