I think gtsmotorsports has a little info on headlight removal in the intercooler install section. Hope that helps. BTW inquiring minds want to know did you get some diamond cut headlights??

I use a 5/16 on mine, but mine is a 99. haven't had the headlights out yet, but i believe Willyp was saying they just pry up, you could pm him to check, sorry man, wish I could help more.

They are something to change. GRRRR.I had a fogged head light in my 97 gasser and replaced it.$40 bucks at a wrecking yard. The counterman proceeded to tell me how hard they are to change and how to do it. Well his instructions didn't work. I finally got in my tool box ,grabbed a pair of side cutters an went down in there and cut the part that holds the screws off.Sorry it's hard to explain here,but if your not going to save the one your removing then you can try most anything Dood luck

You don't have to mess with the adjusters. Remove the turn and side lamps from behind. there are nuts back there that are hard to get to . Once they are removed you can see what you are doing.

oh yeah i got that far to where it is just the headlight on the truck...some instructions will tell you to remove the top screws by removing the clips on the backside and to turn out the horizontal adjusting screw completely...so i need to have the size of the adjusting hex head cause its tiny and i don't have anything that small
