1. Thoroughly clean both of the headlights and the headlight covers with soapy water. Then, dry them and repeat if necessary. This is done so that the finished product won’t have any fingerprints or dust that is visible when the headlights are turned on.

2. Once both the headlights and headlight covers are visibly clean, use the alcohol wipes provided to further clean the headlights. You are given two so use one for each headlight. If you don't clean off even the smallest amounts of dust, you risk the double sided tape not sticking properly.

3. Remove the tabs from the double sided tape and slide the bottom part of the headlight cover between the headlight and front bumper. Come at the headlight straight on with the headlight cover and press it firmly against the headlight. It will be very hard to misplace the cover and should fit exactly the way it's supposed to the first time.

4. If the headlight covers aren't lined up the way you want them to be, quickly remove them because the double sided tape will quickly bond after a few seconds. You can then try again to match it up correctly.
