I have aftermarket lights and I was wondering if someone could break it down for me, the steps to remove and reinstall the lights, pictures would be helpful, ps I have the SAP so it may be a bit different, i think the bumper has to come off?

No, the bumper does not need to come off I don't think. You just have 2 easy bolts on the top and one bolt in the fender that will be a pain to get off. Look for the painting headlight thread. The three bolts are in pics there. Once you get those off and the lights still not comming off, then you might have to take the bumper off. I still feel the pain of getting the third bolt off....

Yeah, but the way the lights attach to the car frame should be the same. When you pop the hood, is there not two 10 mil bolt's holding the lights on?

Yeah, that is the way they are different. The part you might have to remove is the radiator cover (plastic thing over your grill). Until you unbot them, unless someone chimes in that has a SAP you won't know for sure...sorry!!!! Just an FYI, I never put the third 10 mil bolt back on in the fender.

For the fender bolt, a ratcheting wrench is very useful. I didn't have one and it took about 10 min to get the drivers side bolt out while laying on my back with just a normal wrench.

ok with the fender bolt i took of the lower splash guard and reached up and took them out...the fender bolts are 10mm..i think...even with all three bolts out you wont be able to get the lights out...with the sap...if u look at the pic you see the black thinkg where the hood lach is well you have to take that off...after that youll see 2 phillips screws take them out..they hold the grill back...after that look down where you took those screws out and you see another set of screws holding the bumper on the foam...after all this they will pop right out...any questions ask...but im leaving for class soon
