    Default Removing headlight ???

    Hi guy's, Some T**t hit my car on the front wing breaking the bottom lug of the headlinht unit. I removed the 2 top bolts but can't manage to get the unit out of the gap to replace it, Am I missing something. It moves up & outward by about 2 inches then jams
    P.s has anyone used the after market units on ebay & are they good quality.

    The most difficult part I found was removing the push in studs under neath. Make sure you turn your wheels right over to the side so you can get easier access into the arches.
