I'm looking to do a headlight swap with dayvers, but convienently, neither of us have the mechanical ability to take out and reinstall headlights ourselves. Anyone know of a good shop or person in Orange County that could easily do this?

i'm sure there are some DIY guides on here. you'll have to take off the front bumper to get the headlights out. i've only assisted a couple times before. i've never done it on my own. sorry!

some scattered thoughts? you'll need to pop off those black plastic "rivets/buttons" in the wheel well areas to allow you to remove the front bumper. you'll also have to disconnect all the lights before pulling the front bumper completely off. you'll have to remove some of those black "button" looking thingies near the grill area, where the front bumper & grill is held onto the car.

please note: there are some black plastic headlamp & bumper clips that need to be removed gently. if you break them, you'll need to get them at a dealer. so don't just pull off your front bumper too quickly.

to get the headlamps off, you'll have to undo/unscrew 2 points on each headlamp?

search around on here to see what you can find. anyone who paints their headlamps needs to take the bumper off too, so i'm sure there has to be a write-up somewhere.
