got the screw out, however now. The housing wont come out because the bottom part of the housing is catching on the plastic piece above the chrome bumper... Any ideas?

Yea that's what I figured. I attempted to do that, but there are these weird looking tabs that are metal and then split the ends 3 ways. They are really hard to undo so I stopped. My car guy said he could do it for hundred

Ohh come on! You are so close. Why spend $100 when you CAN do it yourself. Get that confidence up and go to it. ****, pull the bumper if you have to. Its only nuts and bolts, there is nothing difficult in store, just time spent. Bust some knuckles (or wear some gloves) and get dirty! Youll feel so much more satisfied if you do it yourself too!

To remove the plastic piece you have to take out the two bolts in the top left of your picture, two 10mm on each side. Then remove 3 or 4 of these type of clips from inside the grill area

And there may be 3 or 4 more inside the bumper mouth on the top. But now that I am thinking about it, I don't think those will have to come off for a chrome bumper..

If you are talking about the flat looking clips under the head lights, don't try to remove those. Once you have the bolts and other clips out, the trim will pull out of those. You don't want to/can't remove those.

I know its a lot of work, but its not that bad. But Tacoma's aren't much better; I have done a few before and you don't have to take off the bumper for theirs, just some small trim covering the bolts under each light. Which is nice, but I have broken every one of those trim pieces I have touched. They are just so fragile that it isn't even funny.

Yea the black ones i can get off no problem. But i'm pretty sure that the plastic piece was also held on with those metal flat looking ones with the three prongs that spread out to hold it all together. Ill take it all apart again tomorrow. LOL and look again.
Thanks for being so helpful.

Can you get some pica of the metal clips? So we can better understand.

I'll try and get some of what I'm talking about after I get home from class.

Sorry for the awful pictures, but I was trying to do a few different things before it got dark so this is the best I could do.

These would need to come out:


But if you are talking about clips in this area, then those do not need to come out. Once you take out the bolts and other clips, you will pull the bumper straight out and it will pop out of those clips.

Got it!

Hey Thanks a bunch!
I figured it out. The small metal clips, that almost look like rivets are what i thought had to come out. They were exactly where you circled and they were also on the bottom of the plastic peice above the bumper. It looked like they were attached to chrome bumper, but it turned out there was a really big lip that i just had to force over the bumper.

Lights are installed and B E A utiful.

Thanks a bunch for your help and Ill post pics soon.
