Bumper/Headlight Q's

Really just to verify -

Bumper bolts/nuts are 3/4" right. I have to pick up a deepwell for it. I only have metric socket set and 19mm fits pretty close to perfect.
Also, whats the best way to get these suckers off. I tried to just break them loose last night and only got one.

And

Headlight retaining clips - Anybody have a part number? I guess i'm going to have to go to a dealer and get them.

Its 19mm. Some reason ford uses all metrics. Try using a breaker bar if your having trouble getting them off

19mm and I use a 3/8 long arm ratchet w/ swivel head. They are breaker bar length, but ratcheting head. I use the 1/2" drive one as well. Works great!





Headlight retaining clips....dealer or you should be able to find them at the auto parts store in the HELP! brand stuff probably.

Ok thanks guys. Is it easier to put the valence on before or after you get the bumper on?

I found it easier to put it on before since I was doing it by myself.
