    Headlight Replacement

    Are the lights sold with the entire enclosure or just the bulb? It's still dark outside and there's not enough light in my garage to see it, but I looked for the part online, and it shows the whole glass enclosure. The movers are coming today and I'd like to fix this before they take my tools! Are these a big PITA? I've never changed a bulb on a car with flip up headlights.

    thanks

    Not a big deal, you need only a couple screwdrivers to change it. It's been awhile, tho, so I don't remember if one of the screws is a torx style. However, our headlights are the whole light assembly, not just the small bulb that fits into the back like most cars are today. It really is better, our lenses are glass and won't haze over like the Camaros/Mustangs/most other cars do. You can take the plastic bezel off for better access to the headlight retainer screw. First turn on the headlights, then turn them off leaving the parking lights on, this way they stay popped up without being on.

    NP. Hey, if you want to, try to just change the bulb from the back, without breaking the glass, and let us know how that goes! Somebody told me a story about a DIYer who tried just that, and took it to an auto parts place!
