hi all,

i need HELP to remove the headlight assembly - not the just the headlights.
i checked the owner's manual and it does not have the instructions.
i did a search and only came across information on the headlight removal, not the complete assembly.
this is for 1st generation 126 headlight assembly.

thanks in advance for your assistance.

Well, you have 2 screws on top and 2 on the bottom and everything comes out.
hi AndreiRN,

would you happen to have some pics of the location of the screws you are referring to?

i noticed there is a bolt on the bottom of the light assembly but the access is restrictive, and i'm not sure if that's what is securing it.

thanks

You might want to first remove the side (turn signal) light. Unscrew the large round (1") plastic nut. Then slide the light forward. Disconnect the wire.

Just look at it. It took me 5 minutes to remove my second gen lights that were attached to the wipers. You have no wipers. Make sure to remove both headlights and disgard them. Install Euros in their place.
