without actauly take out the headlight, take out all of the bulb pluggs like turn, highs lows ect. leave Hood open with all of them pulle dout. leave it for liek an afternoon liek that. Now you may want to use some silicon sealent or somehting after you dry it all out. thats aobut all i have for adivce smile

it si actauly really easy to take it off and take out headlights. actualy you dont even need ot take it off. just go in your fenderwellbehind the palstics, undoo the upa dn down screw, and pull out the side of the bumper a bit. it will give you enough room to get to the bolt ont he lower side fo the headlight. I had to do all fo this to change out my highs (damn HID housing) but really it is easier to take off the bumper. I finally did it one afternoon to cahnge fogs out. took no time at all and way really easy. I didnt eavn jack it up. I jsut layed under it to get to the lower screws.

Ps sorry for the bad typing: at a work pc with bad keyboard wink
