To begin pop the hood and remove the 5 Phillips head retaining screws that secure the grille to the header panel.
There will be 4 across the top of the grille and one underneath.
Remove the 4 Phillips head retaining screws securing the headlight bezels to the header panel.
There will be 2 per side.
Pull out on the grille and set it aside.
Remove 5 of the 8mm retaining bolts that secure the header panel to the core support.
These are currently the bolts that are accessible. The other four will be removed once you remove the headlight bezels.
There will be one bolt in the center, two bolts attached to the angled bracket on the driver side, and two bolts attached to the angled bracket on the passenger side.
Starting with the passenger side, locate the two 11mm park light retaining nuts.
These are hard to see, but can be accessed with a deep socket.
Each nut is located inside the provision on the core support which are just above the horn assemblies.
Remove these nuts and then disconnect the side marker and park light electrical connections.
The side marker and park lights are secured to the head light bezel so it will be removed along with both lights.
Repeat these steps for the driver side.
Now, remove the remaining 8mm header panel to core support retaining bolts.
There will be two per side.

It may help to carefully pry on the lower metal trim to free the header panel.
Lay the header panel on an old towel or blanket.
Take this time to clean any dirty areas.
Remove the three headlight retaining clips from the studs.
This can be done by working them up in a back and forth motion.
Once those are free, remove the headlight from the header panel.

This will ensure that the headlights are properly aligned.
Hold the plastic retainer while you rotate the adjustment screw.
Position the new headlight into place.
Press in on the light and then snap the clips into the groove on the headlight.
Do the same for the other side.
Before reinstalling the header panel, take this time to tuck the bulbs inside of the core support to prevent damage.
Reposition the header panel.
It may help if you go at a slight angle to get the panel past the lower metal trim.
Retighten the 4 previously removed bolts.

Remove the three Phillips head screws securing the park light to the headlight bezel.
There are two on the bottom and one on the side.
Remove the park light and then clean the bezel.
Before installing the new park light and side marker, use the previously removed hardware and begin cutting new threads into the new lights.
Make sure the screws are straight and make a few turns.
Once you cut a few threads go ahead and back them out.
Position the park light into the headlight bezel.
Start each screw a few turns before fully tightening each one.
Position the new side marker into place.
Reposition the bracket in the same orientation it was removed and retighten the previously removed hardware.
Do the same for the other side.
Positon the headlight bezel into place and reconnect the park light and side marker connections.
Loosely tighten the top two headlight bezel to header panel retaining screws.
If for some reason the headlights are misaligned, remove these screws and make the proper adjustments.
There is an adjustment at the top, front and corner of the headlight.
Put it back into place and tighten the two screws.
Reinstall and retighten the two 11mm park light retaining nuts.
Repeat these steps for the other side.
