    I have taken the top two bolts out of the headlight with a philips screwdriver. I also have done the bottom one where you have to go up and under and they still wont come out, any suggestions?

    There are 2 screws on the top of the headlight, One by the clip where the bumber attaches to, and one under the headlight (where you have to move the fender.

    remove the grille, you will see a screw kind of "INSIDE" the bumber... stick a phillips screwdriver in there and hold back the plastic part of the bumper (it should flex around a little)
