Looking for information about replacing gen5 headlight unit
Has anybody here had any experience changing the headlight unit (the unit which is bolted on and holds the headlight) on a generation 5 Celica? I damaged my left one just before christmas. I picked up a replacement unit and I am going to attempt to replace it tomorrow.

Does anybody know about this or know of any good resource sites where I can find info about this?

Thanks.

Raise light up. Turn it off but leave it in raised position.
Remove the headlight fuse is also a good idea.
First take of the black cover. There are three screws on the side.
Once the cover is off, you will see 4 screws holding the chrome ring,
Remove them, there is one screw at each corner of the bulb.
Remove the bulb and unplug the harness.
Pop the new one in and reverse the procedure.
