roof lights ?

i have a more detailed thread on this in the exterior 99-03 section but i think a lot more people look here, at least first so i'll keep it short. is the running lights screwed in on the bottom through the cab. if so where can i get the best directions for taking off the head liner. my repair man has nothing on the head liner or the runnig lights(everything else). i don't want to damage my head liner but i need to fix a leaky light.

Are you talking about the cab marker lights? I believe they are screwed in from the outside, under the lense. But I have never had my lense off.

They are fastened from the top down on (pretty sure) all aftermarket and probably OEM's correct me if I'm wrong. If you just have a leaky light you should be able to just pop the lens off and unscrew the light and make your fix. If you have to access the underside for some reason: you should only have to drop the front of the headliner... It's not hard at all. Take the sun visors off by pulling the 6 screws (3 on each side). Then it helps to take the A-pillars off. The driver side can simply be pulled off, on the passenger side you will need to take the handle off (4 bolts 5/16 socket pretty sure). After that there are two push-in plastic rivets, just pull and wiggle them loose. At this point the front of the headliner should be free. Just work it out from under the door seal from the front to the back until you have enough room. I just did it last night on mine to tie in some I just installed. There is a pretty good write up here Motoman's Madness on cab light installation (headliner removal included). Good luck, hope this helps

yes and thats what i thought too but when i opened the orange lenes expecting to find screws, instead there was a cylinder on each side and it looked as though the screws ran up from the cab into the cylinder looking things assumeing there treaded on the other side? i tried to turn them with my fingers hopeing that they were covers but i didn't want to mess them up by tring to use pliers.

Gotcha... I'm not really sure how the OEM's are fastened. Sounds reasonable they are from inside to outside. Dropping the front of the headliner for a quick look is not hard at all though.

was writing my respondse when you answered lkbogger, but when i take off the lens i see no screw head. i'm going to take a look at your link but if you could give a little more info of what to look for, also the one light i looked under to see whats under there, when i put it back on it doesn't seem as tight before. do you have to put a new foam peice on after opening for a good seal?

Haha yeah sorry about that. If you don't see any heads for screws...probably just pull the liner down and see what you got. My cab lights are aftermarket so maybe someone else with OEM lights will chime in to help you out. If your lenses are really loose and new foam is not a viable option I would probably just throw some silicone on the seal.
