I have 2 sets of XR lights, both drivers side sets are perfectly intact with no broken bits, the other passenger side sets has 2 cracked lights on a perfect bracket while the other has 2 perfect lights on a cracked/broken tab bracket. I want to swap lights but cannot figure out how to seperate the big black one from the bracket.

Any info would be great.

the white clips on the back of the lights are cup sockets, the adjusters off the backings have ball fittings.
apply a little pressure between the 2 with a flat head screwdriver and they'll pop apart.
be carefull not to break the clips, ford dont sell them anymore
