1998 headlight **** removal !!!
I am shaking I am so angry!!!
I am simply trying to take the headlight **** off on my 1998 Navigator (same as some F150s?)....to replace some dash lights that are out. This assembly has the 2 rotating wheels, 1 for dash light intensity & 1 for auto headlight turn on.
I have heard here & on the internet that you need to use a small screwdriver (or paperclip) and somehow find a spot in/under the **** through a whole in the **** when you pull it out for fog lights....and then it slides right off.
Another post says/shows you just use the hole on the bottom of the **** to PRY it off.
I have been trying to get this **** off for 5 DAYS now, and it doesn't budge!
I even brought it too the Lincoln dealer down the street and they (parts & service dept.) don't know how to take this **** off! They simply tell me they don't sell the **** separately, and I'll have to buy the WHOLE headlight switch assembly if I break it!
IS THERE ANYONE ON EARTH THAT KNOWS HOW TO TAKE THIS **** OFF???
I am not an idiot, I can build a motorcycle in ONE day....I just don't want to break this ****.
(I realize the 1999 headlight switch assembly is different, w/ a slot on the assembly instead of the slot on the **** itself)
This is the last 2 warm days of the year here in the North East....I would like to get this done, or live w/o some dash lights all winter.
