Hi All,

I have a burned out headlight so I figured I might as well replace them on both sides (99 RR 4.0). There are two nuts that should be pretty easy to remove that holds the headlamp assembly in place on the interior side of the assembly. One cam right out, but on the other 3 the nuts turn, but of course, so does the stud they are attached too. I don't see any way to get on the other side of these studs and I am guessing they just broke loose from whatever is supposed to keep the studs from turning. Does anyone have any ideas on how I should proceed? Normally I would just loose my temper and rip them out. That usually costs too much money with range rovers. Any and all ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Bradster

Why the hell do you need to remove the headlight assembly to replace the lamps?

? slide rubber boot back, release clip, remove bulb, unplg bulb. Install in reverse. You can easily replace all four in 10 minutes or less even with throwing the ball for the hound. :mrgreen:

Slight hijack: I have a similar problem with the bolts turning inside the headlamp frame, making it impossible to loosen the nuts. I could rip them out, but would rather keep them in once piece, as there's really nothing wrong with the headlamps, except that I want to replace them with MY 2000 ones.

Greetz,

Filip
