    I'm really not much of a car guy but I'm hoping to put HIDS in my 08 tacoma. I got as far as fnding out i need the grill off which was no problem. I also remved the two screws on the on top a couple plastic rivets as well as one screw under the grill. It seems like i'm missing one though cause I still can't get the assembly out. Any suggestions?

    its a pain in the but. you can either go in through the inner fender, or what i did cause im scrawny and have long arms...i laid on my back and looked up at the bottom corner of the headlight and stuck my hand up there to find the bolt. Kinda have to do a half of a sit up to reach it. But beware there are 2 bolts there and only one of them is for the headlight. I took the wrong one off the first time and about lost my mind cause i couldnt figure it out. As for which bolt (top or bottom) i cant remember. But search for headlight removal and a thread with great details and pics is around here somewhere.
