Converting to 05 headlights

ive got this how to written by someone. Dfuser on his license plate. Anyway I noticed for one that the lights came with no screws and that on the part list it says picking up a screw set.

Is this is as simple as going to Ford?

You will use the bottom screws from your old park lights, you will need four more for the tops, they're the same size as the bottom ones.
You could get them from ford or anywhere else that sells sheet metal screws.
I assume you know about cutting the header panal and wiring in new style pigtails righ?

Wait wut^^^^



So these screws are just holding in place. How do you adjust the light and no I was not aware of having to wire in a new pigtail.

Adjusting is the torx screw in the top right?

Yes the screws just hold the lights in. The adjusters are built onto the light.

And yes the 05-07 light takes a different headlight bulb than the 99-04, so you have to change to plug or the harness.
