Head light tool

I am trying to find the part # to the tool that is in the kit to remove the head lights. My son decided it would be a good idea to lose it on me.

Hi,

All you need is a 5(?) mm nutdriver. Insert it in the acess hole, loosen the nut (anti-clockwise) 'til you hear/feel a loud crack, and the headight will be free. It might be a 7mm I forget, been a while since I've removed one...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

headlight tool

You need a 6mm hex nut. Go to your local car shop and pick up a set of hex nuts. You dont need to twist it much and do it towards the car. The whole unit will pop out. Super easy, i did it yesterday
