    2015 low beam change

    Heavy duty nitrile gloves. Small flashlight. Patience.

    No problem.

    I found it necessary to loosen the top star bolt that holds the horn bracket to the frame so that I could push the horn back out of the way to give my hands more room to work, but it wasn't necessary to remove the horn. And I wear size large gloves, so I don't have small hands. I think it does help that I am a keyboard player by trade, so I have spent a lifetime honing fine motor skills with my fingers.

    Took me about 30 minutes and I really took my time, checking and double checking at every stage so I had a picture in my mind about what needed to be pushed where.

    Next time will take about 10 minutes. The biggest pain was that start bolt that holds the horn bracket. Not a lot of room for a socket wrench.

    More details to change Low Beam on '14-'18 RTW

    I was able to get a picture of the area where all the problems are with this job.
    Seeing exactly where to push in and push aside, really helps with this "touchy feely" job...there's just no way to watch what you're doing!

    Hope this helps someone!

    Yup, but the RS, GS, and R are also wet heads.
