How do you remove the headlight assembly?
I need to change a bulb and I can't get the headlight assembly off. I removed the 3 Torx bolts, but there appears to be a plastic piece inside the fender well that is holding it. Do I need a college degree?

Pull Hard...just be sure not to scratch your bumper when it pops off!

There is a round locating plastic piece and there is a square plastic piece as well. If it hasn't ever been taken off, the square piece has tabs on it. You can just pull it out, or if you're feeling squirrley you can pull the plastic inner fender well out and release the tabs if you don't feel like breaking them. Then the light assembly should just slide out with ease.
whats the easiest way to get the headlight assembly off in an 07 without removing the fender? i cant find a good way to get to the 3rd bolt.....
Like what weed said, just use an extension and a ratchet. Pull the rubber plug out of the liner and stick it through. It should take under 1 min to pull a headlight off a 06-08. I slide a towel in between the bottom of the hadlight and upper bumper cover so it doesn't scratch.
