of course, everyone does, just have to be patient, these plastic parts break easy, just take your time and you should be fine.

It wasnt plastic though. I get that it has to be fiddled with, but this screw was NOT moving. I have a 2011. I dont know if its different than others.

I meant the plastic that it screws too, and not to question you, but make sure you are turning the right way.

I did ratchet the nut off of the bolt/screw. But the damn thing wasn't moving. You know how a rusted bolt feels when its stuck? Like that. Except it wasnt. Ehh..Ill take another look tomorrow. Thanks for replies.

headlight removal is a cinch...after you hit a deer, all the tabs just break right off, even on the opposite side of where you hit them...ask me how i know lol
