Default Replaceing head light housing

So I got new lights not to bad price, ebay. Reason is posted on general topic. I havn't installed em yet. Looks like a real challange, so far I figured I have to remove the front tires set it on Jacks. Theirs a axcess pannel behind each wheel. Also, the front grill, the air box and maybe I'm not sure the bumper. Looks like everything was built on top of the lights, probably cause their built to last, oh well. Has anyone done this, am I missing any steps? Is thier a site that has instructions on this? I'm feeling kinda unsure about this one, My Clinton book is kind of weak on explaintion. I hate just tearing into things without knowing all the steps. I wonder what the time frame is on something like this. All help is appericated!

(2) Remove wheel and tire.
(3) Remove splash shield as necessary to access
headlamp housing.
(4) Remove grille.
(5) Remove the two fascia bolts from behind the
grille (Fig. 15) and (Fig. 16).
(6) Remove fasteners attaching fender to fascia on
the side being worked on.
(7) Remove the three fasteners holding the lower
fascia to the lower radiator crossmember.
(8) Remove four nuts attaching headlamp housing
(Fig. 17).
(9) Remove headlamp housing by lowering the fascia
as necessary (Fig. 18) and (Fig. 19).

So- are your stock headlights in good shape? looking to sell them?
Mine are peeling & look awful. I need affordable legal replacements!!
If you're looking to sell , email me at TnRWessels@comcast.net if they're in really good shape & let me know how much you're hoping to get.[^]

Mission accomplished, feel much better now. A bit labor intensive, but doable. Thanks again Michael for the help. New lights make car look a sharp.[8D]
