Or you could just remove the air filter on driver side the coolant reservoir on the passenger side and reach in from the top.

Funny, I go to your website and "Push Clips" and "Plastic Push Clips" and "Plastic Rivets" all return zero results. I guess I will buy them on ebay.

Thank you! I just bought a used 06 Altima 2.5S and the State Safety Inspector failed the headlamp lenses (among other things). Then he gave me a $660.00 estimate just to change the headlamps ($ 192.00 per headlamp! plus 2 hrs of labor???). OK, all kinds of alarm bells went off at that price – as well as their grand total of the other charges. So, immediately I googled prices on the headlamps to find his prices were about 350% markup. of course I have changed headlights before … so, I thought how dang long could it take to change to bulbs?? More googling and VOILA! I found your video! Admittedly, a bit shocked to learn I need to pull the bumper, but its a few snaps, bolts and screws – no biggie. I've had to get to tougher tighter spots on an airplane. BOTTOM LINE – I am purchasing these headlights from you and I will do the install myself. Your instructions are great. I don't have (and don't need) a lift to get to these bolts (Former USAF Aircraft Maintenance Technician and Daddy's Girl – the kind that helps dad work on the car! All those years of tagging along when he did mom's brakes, headlights, timing, tunups, oil changes, belts and hoses, radiator … and years working on planes have paid off! )

are you kidding me – i need to remove the bumper to change the headlight lenses!!! Did this just turn into a pricey auto-mechanic job?

MsAnthropea Necrosis says:

Why on earth would anyone design a car that you have to take off the wheel and the entire bumper to change a headlight bulb????
