Hey guys,

probably a straight forward procedure that im missing one little thing but i have undone all the bolts and removed everyone that seems to be stopping it but for the life of me i cant get the whole light section out.. all cables to globes been unplugged but it seems to be hitting on something and it is a very tight fit to try and get it over the front bumper.

is there some stupid little part that i am not doing or something?

some help plz??

Thanx

despite what Uglybob will tell you - the bumper needs to come off before you take the lights off. At least that is what bothe the Gregory's and Ford Factory manuals will tell you. It is also what I did when I took my EF GLI lights off recently.

How Uglybob got them out I have no idea.....

as for how, never done it before :D

ive removed my headlights in my ef a few times without removing the bumper. i know the ford manual say to remvoe ti but if your gentle u can get it past the bumper by pushing the top the bumper down and coaxing the head light out. good luck with it
