    does anyone know how to get the headlight out of a 97 without taking off the grill because when i changed my radiator... i broke a few of the plastic things on the grill and if i try to take it out again it will probably not go back on

    Grill must come off! Well, it has to on my 98... Just use a needle nose pliers to unclip the grill

    good luck with those lights .. i owned a pair. make sure the lights in all the way or the light may wiggle of and burn the plastic housing.
