Monte Carlo Headlight Replacement

The Chevy's plastic headlights show more wear than they really should. They had that yellow, weathered look when I got it last year. When another Monte Carlo owner on the Monte Carlo Forum upgraded his 2007 SS with aftermarket units he offered his nearly new originals for sale. I bought them.

I also sought to remedy this - the passenger side lens has the metal reflector rolling loose inside. The only fix (besides a lucky game of shake the light and hope that bugger drops in it's hole) is to separate the halves and reset the thing, then re-seal the halves together.

Headlight removal is easy since one must remove the entire assembly to change a bulb. Pull up the plastic stick and push toward the back. Loosen one sheet metal screw and pull the light forward. One connector to unplug and that's it.
