Hi

I just got "volunteered" to replace the headlight on m y Lady's 91 240SX. I've replaced headlights before, but never on a flipup. My Lady loves this car, so if I screw it up, I'll be singin' soprano! ;)

How is it done? Is it fairly easy and straighforward?

its pretty easy. first of course you raise the light up, then remove the screws on the sides of the light. this hold the plastic head light surround. remove the surround (this can be a bit tricky, be careful not to break it). after that remove the screws that hold the lights retaining ring (its made of metal). after the retainer is out the light should just fall out. unplug it and repeat the same process in reverse to reinstall. hope that helps :) anyone feel free to correct me, its been a while since i did this and im saying everything from memory :p

If they salt the roads where you live, good luck withthe retaining clip screws. I had to have mine cut off and replaced on both lights, because they turned to rusty much.

Thanks- this sounds pretty much like any other headlight replacement. Trouble is, when I "remove the screws on the sides of the light..." I find they're the alignment screws! ;)

I'll give it a go tonight.

Did the job last night: went in slicker'n'snot ("That can't have translated right..." ;) )

Thanks for the help!
