i had a whole how to planned out but...good luck...i would hate to see you waste your money having the dealer do it...hey you might want to go get some headlight bulbs that way you dont have to do this again.

Those retainer tabs suck. I have them in my Taurus and they snap in half trying to pull them out!!!! Had the shop do the headlight swap for me with new ones and still they snap off!!!

Any place where you can find those cause next time i'll rip them out and put newer ones in hehe.
