I’m having some fitment issues with my headlights. One light protrudes about 1/4" forward while the other sits flush.
Should they sit flush or protrude? Which is normal? On the protruding one, it won’t go in any further, I pressed on it firmly and if I pushed anymore the mounting tabs would probably break. My hood and bumper alignment is fine. What gives? This friggin’ sucks! :wahmb:
do you have all tabs mounting the lights on? i.e. all top 3, and 2 bottoms per headlight?
the bottom tabs can help pull in or push out & keep stable by loosening the pivot point, re-tighten, then tighten the bracket that goes to towards the core support. so it either pulls in, or just keeps pushing out the bottom of the light.
other then that, for the tops, if u want it to look flush, u can remove the metal surrounding the mounting tab, and it’ll give you about another 1/4" maybe? just make sure to use a correct bolt with a larger washer to compensate for the missing surrounding metal that was originally there.
Nooooooo! Do not sell them. I’m sure you will be able to get them to line up. The beam pattern is way better with those lights. It is well worth the effort. Plus the looks. I was more happy with the performance over the USDM lights.
