Headlight help needed

I started pulling my lights today to start my quad projector retrofit. I got the passenger headlight out quick no problem but the drivers side is giving me trouble. Was anybody able to pull the headlight without taking off the front bumper? How did you get the screw by the coolant reservoir. Really don't want to pull the whole bumper but that's looking what I might have to do

Re: Headlight help needed

Just pull the bumper off. The passenger headlight always come out easy without pulling the bumper off but you're not getting the driver side out with the bumper on. You're just making the process harder and longer.

As for the rivets inside the wheel wells, I've been driving around without them since my retrofit because I'm going to take the bumper off again for more work. So if you don't have rivets, it's ok to drive around without them for a while.

X2 I've driven a while without rivets. It's so much easier with the bumper off.

Ok now I have the headlights out and taken apart. I have a couple of questions I now need help with. What do I do with the plastic bulb cover? That covers the factory headlight bulb. What did you guys do to remove and make it look good. Also is the only thing holding in the reflector the one screw in the back. Trying not break anything so needing all the expertise I can get

Re: Headlight help needed

I wiggled the dome bulb cover back and forward and broke it off with needle nose pliers.

That screw is not the only screw that's holding the reflector in. The last picture is the adjustor make sure it's still assembled before you seal the lens.

Did you shave the lip that was left from the bulb housing? I plan on painting the reflectors?

Re: Headlight help needed

Oh. No. Leave what's left over. As long as you got it out enough so the projector fit it. You won't see any of that stuff because the projector hides it all.

You see people. This is why I did a guide. It's good questions like this that makes the process confusing. It's not hard AT ALL. It only seems hard. Questions like the ones above will leave you stuck because you're not really sure what to do but it's not because it's hard, it's because we don't want to **** anything up. Lol.
