you need a repair manual, Haynes or Chilton, there are too many places to explain here in this format, if you can not find these book at your local parts store, then try your local library, then sometimes even have the dealer shop manuals for your use, hope this helps

SOURCE: I need to replace the front header panel on a 1990

I've found a 1/4" ratchet with a long extension works really good for getting into the tight spots.

When you look at it from the top down you should see 2 adjustment screws. Remove those and the headlight assembly should come out.

If by "welts" you mean some kind of plastic or rubber trim, clean area with 3M adhesive cleaner, then use 3M Black weather strip adhesive.

Changing the headlights. Do you need to remove the front bumper???


Hi, viewers! For the 2008 Acadia headlights replacements, standard procedures require removal of the front bumper fascia for ease of movement and effective replacement or repair jobs. But in actual practice, this isn't always so. As much as we can manage, we dont have to reach to that point of bumper removal unless absolutely necessary. The alternative approach will require some patience and wits to work your way around ,as fast and as effective as possible. Practice makes perfect as they say. : )

DRIVING LIGHTS STOPPED WORKING.


You have to basically remove the bumper cover in order to do this.
You will need a 10mm socket with a couple extensions and a phillips screwdriver.First remove the plastic shield inside the wheel well using the phillips screwdriver.There are three 10mm bolts that have to be removed the attach the bumper cover to the fender. The first one is just inside the newly uncovered hole. For the other two you will need the extensions. They are located all the way back in the hole beside the headlight assembly. If you look in with a flashlight You will see 3 bolts down in there. One of them will have a 1/2 inch spacer on it. Do not worry about this bolt, it holds the header panel on. The other 2 bolts are the ones you need to remove. Once this is done, if you need to remove the bolts under the hood that hold the bumper cover on the header panel. You should now have adequate movement to move the bumper cover out of the way of the 3 10mm bolts on the headlight assembly that were blocked.

How to change headlight on 2007 saturn outlook


Best method that I found is to just take the 6 phillips screws (4 in the well and 2 below the front bumper cover) out of the forward wheel well panel and reach in behind the panel to the headlight assembly.
