its pretty much straight forward. you have to pull the grill off and if you are putting new headlights in, the only thing that i broke was the retaining clips that hold the headlights in, had to get a couple new ones from the ford dealer. but other than that its pretty easy. good luck.

I found retaining clips at NAPA, much cheaper than Ford. I also pulled both batteries to reach each lower 10mm nuts..
