    Remove the entire headlight. It should take you about 10 mins and give you plenty of room.

    Thanks

    thanks, didn't think of that. I just didn't want to have to pay the dealer 50-60$ for this..I won't have to have my headlights adjusted once I have reinstalled them??

    Nope. Just don't mess with the adjustment on the back. It is a little white toothed wheel with a matching "gear" that attached to a screw. As long as you don't turn it your adjustment will not change.
