How do you remove and replace the drivers side parking light unit? Can it be done without removing the headlight unit?
Do you
have the same problem?

I don't have a diagram to look at, but may on Monday. Sometimes you can sneak your arm in from the bottom, through the wheel well to get to them. Sometime they are attached the the headlamp assy.

May have to pull off the headlamp assy to see better.
Post pics if you like and I can try to help that way, or I can check Monday morning.

I take it that the easiest way is to take out the headlight assembly and then the parking light. I would presume that you would then have to have the headlight realigned(?). I was trying to avoid that.

IS this the lense you need removed?

Looks like 1 screw.

Without seeing it, I would expect there is an area that has a tab or protusion the slips into the fender somehow.
