    everything comes out but the bulbs and wiring will go into the new shit. so i figure there are three main screws holding them on each side,two under the hood and one under the wheel well. but the grill and the front end seem to keep it in.

    ok, you have to drop the bumper to take the headlight out. to take the bumper of there is 1 screw in each wheel well, then there is some along the bottom and i think 7 that hold the grill on. then to take the headlight out there will be bolts on to and bottom and side of the headlight there easy seen with the bumper off
