It depends how deep the scratches are you can use an epoxy to fill them in then sand them smooth with emery paper. when you paint it make sure you have a paint that has a flex agent in it because it's plastic and will flex and the paint will crack if it does not have an agent in it make sure to prime it with a primer that has the same agent in it. please rate this thanks

I need to replace the driver's side headlight assembly and need to learn the steps necessary to remove the damaged headlight and insert the new one. From what I can tell, one or more of the front...


Hi,

To remove the headlamp assy. you need to gain access to the bolts that are hidden by the front bumper.. you need to pull back the inner fender well closest to the edge of the front bumper and there is a 10mm bolt going into the bumper you need to remove then you will be able to pull the edge of the bumper away from the fender you will need to remove any clips and or bolts around the grill area to give enough room to pull the bumper cover out of the way enough you need to get your hand and a wrench or socket into the lower part of the fender there is a bolt there that holds the headlamp assy. in remove that bolt as well as the other bolts on the top of the core support and then you will be able to move/wiggle headlamp out enough and disconnect the wiring and remove the assembly be careful not to scratch the fender or bumper cover.. you may want to put some masking tape on the fender and bumper cover so as not to scratch during removal.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

What parts are needed for replacing the front end of a 2001 monte carlo? I find bumper covers, reinforcements, energy absorbers, etc. Do I need some or all of these?


It depends on how far in the damage goes. Usually fenders, hood, bumper cover and headlights, but if the damage is deep, you could need a bumper, absorbers, the bumper mounts, even the radiator support assembly, which requires welding.

Pull off the damaged parts and set them aside, and then go to gmpartsdirect.com and click on the catalog link, fill in your make and model and look for the bodyparts you need to replace.

I have a holden senator new model 2009, a car slightly.


Depending on how deep the scratches are, you may be able to keep the bumper. You can probably sand, bondo, prime and paint the bumper and be ok. If you choose to replace, after market bumper covers start and around $70 usd and OEM bumpers start at $250 usd. Good Luck I hope you find this very helpful!
