Headlight removal?

:pray: Please someone tell me the trick to getting the clips off that hold the headlights so that I can put a new one in!
I'm ready to take a baseball bat to the whole frontend of my truck!

Just grab the clip with a pair of needle nose and pull strait up. It helps to push in on the light.

Thanks for the reply Glenn! I got it FINALLY! It was the peg on the bottom, outside rear that was the problem. I took out the right side battery so I could actually SEE it. It didn't help that I was doing it in the dark.

Anyway, I put the clear headlights, corner lights, and the clearance lights on the top of the cab tonight. They look pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Tomorrow I'm gonna try and tackle the TS 6 pos. chip.

Glad you got them out. Those bottom adjusters were a bear to get out on mine too. You'll like the light they throw along with the looks.

After changing out the lights did you have to re adjust them or re align the light beam?

Just got back online tonight. I had to adjust them a little bit, but not much.

I had a high beam out on the right side, so I thought I'd give a set of Silverstar Ultras a try. They better turn night into day, for the $50 I shelled out for them.
