KC HiLiTES 7" LED Headlight Install
Let's get started!
Hopefully I am making this as easy as possible for those that are experienced and to newbies that have never touched their Jeeps.
Here is what comes in box. (Make sure you obviously have both lights and both harnesses before starting)
Flat Head Screwdriver
T10 Torx Screwdriver
First you need to undo the blinker/running lights on grille. You have two options depending on what you find easier. You can pull red tab, press the harness bottom tab and pull harness, or you can just twist the light housing and light when come out with harness still attached.
Next, opening hood. On each side of front of hood you will have two latches. You will need to pull back those hood latches on each side for hood to open enough to unlatch hood lever under hood. **Note** to Jeep owners that have never owned a Jeep before. There isn't a hood lever to pull inside of Jeep :friendly_wink:
After propping the hood open, you will see on the top of grille 6 black push button tabs.
Here is where you will need the flat head screwdriver and pick.
First take flat head screwdriver and pop at the plastic pin in the tab. (If the entire push button comes out that is fine)
Then take pick and gently go under tab to pop out.
After all 6 tabs are completely pulled out it is time to gently pull corners of grille. On each end of grille there is tabs behind and also down lower middle section. By pulling one or possibly even both ends "gently" that will help pull the rest of grille from Jeep.
Place grille aside and this is what your Jeep should look like at this point.
Now it is time to start pulling your factory headlights!
Grab your T10 torx screwdriver (I've heard some Jeeps have a different size) and unscrew the chrome ring that goes around the actual headlight.
**BE AWARE THAT ONCE ALL FOR TORX SCREWS ARE PULLED, THE HEADLIGHT CAN FALL OUT** Make sure you are holding light in place with one of your hands!
Now that the ring is pulled, gently pull light out so you can see wiring harness behind.
**Note** My harness will be different due to having the KC HiLiTES H4 coversion 7" Headlight upgrade.
On the wiring harness you will need to pull the red tab out then push the harness tab button and pull wiring harness apart.
