How to Remove the Headlight assembly.

Can someone help me out. I just received my hid's tonight and I can not remove the headlight assembly. I removed the 2 bolts in the front and remove 1 nut under the wheel well. The light does not want to come out. Is the another bolt or nut I am missing? Any help will be appreciated..

No you have removed two bolts in the front and the one nut in the rear.
The trick now is to pull hard to overcome the plastic guide pin with the retaining clip.
The guide pin looks like a ball bearing on the end of a rod with a four fingered clip holding the plastic ball bearing in place. It is a real pain especially if you have to change out a head lamp on the side of the road in the middle of winter at night at -40C

there are the 2 bolts up front the one in the wheel well! and then there is a ball that pops in a holder that acts as a swivel! u have to pull pretty hard to pop it out! and then u have to push pretty hard to pop it back in! its just above the wheel well bolt but u can see it at all!

3 bolts and pull REALLY, REALLY HARD. That's about the only trick there is.

Do yourself a favor and put a cover of some sort over the bumper just under the headlight. When the thing pops out, it comes out with some force and you can scratch the poop out of the paint. I just did it two days ago and it takes a surprising amount of force with no reall good grip points...SC
