didn't you by any chance mention that you have a passenger side headlight?

yeah i have one, but it's the one with all the broken tabs. I guess you could use the tab repair kit for the top 2 tabs, but iono what's left of the bottom two

nope going to swap it tomorrow, i'm assuming that the LCM might be the culprit if the other headlight doesn't work

Sillie,
Thanks for these excellent instructions! For folks with clumsy hands like myself, I found this fellow's technique helped me immensely with reinstalling the bottom two bolts.


I also found having an 18" or longer flexible magnet was the ticket for removing the bottom 8mm bolts after each bolt was fully loosened.
