eBay lights - black housing - 05-07
 
Just installed the headlights! Took the bumper off, then the old headlights and installed the new ones and put the bumper back on.

I'd have pics but the passenger side housing fogged up after the wash. I guess at some point in the future I'll have to remove the new light and do a better job of sealing it up.

The bulb sockets seemed a little wiggly due to the aftermarket design. Is there any way to make a better seal around the bulb sockets? Thanks!

Ryan

They look great and fit about 97% perfect w/ a little gap around the amber area on one side.

I'll get some shots up shortly!! (once the fog in the lens dissipates a little)

Hey it's Ryan I'm on brads account. I took the bumper off to get to the two tabs under the light housings. They're impossible to get to without taking the bumper off. Thank you rob and madanio for the advise, I have extra bulbs laying around so I'll try that when I get back!

Pics very soon.
