How To: Remove Headlights; 2011+ models
Cellbine posted a topic in Glass, Lenses, Lighting, Mirrors, Sunroof (BAMR), WipersHey guys, Here is a quick how to remove your headlights for 2011+ models. No vid this time, just quick pics to help you along your way. 1. Remove your bumper. If you don't want to take the whole bumper off, you can leave the bottom bolts in place, unscrew the top and wheel well bolts and screws, and pop the sides off. Then lean the bumper back, making sure its supported. Here is a link to my thread on removing your bumper: http://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/12810-how-to-remove-front-bumper;-2011-2013-models/ 2. Once your bumper is out of the way, you will need to unscrew 4 bolts: You will need a socket wrench with a 10mm socket for the bolts above. 3. Before taking off your headlights, you need to disconnect the wiring. There is a wire harness located on the back of each headlight unit towards the bottom. You can disconnect it easily if access from underneath the headlights. There is a clip holding it in place on the top and it just slides straight out. Also, be sure to remove your turn signal and high/low beam wiring. This is were the wire harness pointed out above is located, shown from the back of the headlight unit: 4. Now that the headlights are completely disconnected electrically, you can pull the units straight out. There are no twists or turns, it is very simple. 5. When putting your headlights back in, follow the steps above in reverse order. The headlights have pins above where the bolt holes are. These pins slide into place in holes in the body of the car. This allows proper placement of the headlights and additional stability while bolting them into place. An example of the pin is below: 6. Bolt your headlights in place and re-connect any wiring from step 3. Once your, bumper is out of the way, this is an easy job. The only thing is, some of the bolts can be dificult to get to if you don't have a socket wrench extension. Other than that, very simple. Let me know if you have any questions.
