Yeah so because i'm pretty much blind, i ordered new headlgihts (thanks pimped3point3)And in the manual it says to remove the mounting screws and then remove the light bulb etc. well upon trying to do what the manual says to do, i found out that the cheap plastic that dodge used from taiwan cracked and now the mounting screws are pretty much not an option to remove the headlight, i need help any suggestions or real experiences with this that will help get those lights out would be greatly appreciated. thanks
:D

I started a thread like this about 4 months ago. There is nothing you can do. You could try some penetrating oil but I doubt it will work. The nut that is in the plastic sticks to the screw and the plastic yields before there is enough torque to loosen it. My advice is to break 2 out of the three and zip tie the housing back together. That's what I did and it works fine. Lamps are still steady as a rock. BE CAREFULL THOUGH!!!

yeah, bread = break, but is there a way to take off the whole headlamp apparatus, i removed the two black bolts at the top and it became loose, but it wouldn't come out far enough any ideas?
