un-install and re-install

sup people
I looked in my truck where the headlights bulbs are

but it doesn't give me any room to pull it out
got the windshield fluid block one and battery the other side

anyone have any idea how to un-install them cause I'm going to put HID lights later, ONCE THE NORTHEAST gets back into the SPRING MODE!!!

For HID's I found it easier to take them out, seal them back up properly (especially because the bulbs, wires, etc in them never are the same as the factory) and you have more room to work with. Also makes mounting ballasts much more manageable. Only four screws/bolts hold them in. Two Phillips head on the top, one phillips head screw kind-of half way under the bumper cover, and the 4th is tricky to find at first but not hard (use a ratchet and a 10mm socket) as you must access it from under the truck. Take your time with the last bolt, don't break the mount, and be sure to put it back in when you reassemble everything. Hope this helps.

If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving

^^^ that will make installation the easiest, but take a little longer (not a problem if you have time)

i installed a set of hids a few nights ago. i took out the battery, and unbolted the two bolts that hold in the washer fluid holder so i could tilt it out of the way. gave me enough room to get everything installed.

^^^ yeah, oyu don't have to take anything out, it just mkes it easier. the uninstall and reinstall of the battery and washer fluid was abotu 5 minutes, so i think it was worth it for how much easier it was
