Removal Procedure:


1. Open hood and prop open.

2. The entire front bumper must be removed to change out the headlights.

3. Start with removing the radiator cover.

4. Remove the six plastic clips with a flat head screwdriver(if difficult use the needle nose pliers to pry out).


Removal Procedure continued:


1. Next step is to remove the two 10mm bolts holding each headlight in from the top.


Removal Procedure continued:


2. Next step is to remove the three Phillip head screws holding the valance to the bumper.


3. Behind the fender lining (valance) holding the bumper to the frame is two 10mm bolts both of these also must be removed. Just gently pull the fender lining back no need to remove the fender lining to remove both bolts.


4. Next step is to disconnect the two marker lights from both sides.

5. Lay your blanket down under the bumper so as to not scrape or chip any paint when removing the bumper from your vehicle.

6. Pull down on the bumper from each side of your vehicle but do not remove completely until you disconnect both FOG Lights.

7. Then remove both 10mm bolts underneath each headlight.


8. Once you remove your headlight disconnect your bulb.


Installation procedure:


1. Then take your new Axial smoked headlight and reconnect your bulb.

2. When installing aftermarket headlights look for any seals that are not completely sealed if you see a gap this is the time to take your silicone and cover this area so as to not allow any condensation on the inside of your new headlights.

3. Then install the three 10mm bolts on each of your headlights.

4. When reinstalling your bumper is much easier with two people if available.

5. Do NOT forget to reconnect your fog lights and two marker lights on each side.

6. Once you have reinstalled your bumper and reinstalled the Philips head screws on each fender lining you are ready to reinstall your radiator cover.

7. If your clips are not reusable these are available at your local auto parts store.


The new Axial smoked headlights had more light than most clear headlights and gave me the blackout look that I was hoping for, enjoy your new Axial Smoked Headlights from American Muscle.
