trying to change the driver's side front parking light on my 1997 taurus

saw in chilton manual to remove headlight via 3 10m bolts

removed them, but headlight wont come out, comes out a little way and is stuck - pulling hard enough to rock the car, dont want to break anything:angry:


grrr, cant believe how difficult they made changing a stupid parking light

any ideas?

There's 3 bolts to remove but there's another long 10mm bolt that reaches way down and pinches a tab behind the headlight. So you still have one more bolt to back off before the lens will come out.

Yes after you get the headlight out, you kind of have to reach into the side and twist the bulb out .
