    There is a 4th bolt.

    10 mm

    It's inside the fender. Feel up in there with your hand...you wont be able to see it but you can feel it. And you will feel two bolts...the one on top is the one you want to unbolt;)

    the headlight bulb?

    There is this bent wire that you lift and kinda twist...the wire should stay attached to the plastic headlight and the bulb will come out..


    play with it, be gentle...dont break it

    I didn't have a torque bit the first time i took them apart... used a flat bladed screw driver. Take one of the screws out and take that to the store to find the right size screw driver.

    lens up is what I did. Don't want to risk scuffing the lens. Make sure you put it on some cardboard

    what baking instructions did you follow?

    heat up the oven to 300*F

    turn off the oven


    put the headlight in the oven for 10 min....make sure the oven is OFF

    after ten min pull the headlight out...wear gloves

    pull it apart....its still going to be really tuff to tear apart, but it will happen after you struggle with it
