    I really need help on figuring out how to get those 4th screws out that hold in my head light. I have got the bolt off of the back of it but i can't seem to get the actually screw itself out. I am having a really hard time and I was wondering if someone could give me some suggestions on how I can get it out. I have used a flat head screw driver to try and wiggle it out but it seems to be stuck. Both sides seem to be stuck. My truck is an 06 so maybe its rusted or something?

    Hmm that is strange.. I doubt it could be stripped. Have you made sure you fully unscrewed it?

    Yep the bolt is fully off. The front of the screw is flat so there is nothing I can use to really get it off. I am going to go out at try using some needle nose pliers to wiggle it out or maybe twist it. I am really hoping it works.
