    You don't need to bake the headlights to change the bulbs - they are accessible through the backside.

    For the turn signal bulbs at least, it's best to remove the headlight assembly. Not sure if the same applies to the low/high beam and DRL/FTP bulbs

    I'd go with the route of least resistance... removing the washer tank and air filter housing are both trivial tasks. Might as well!



    Guy,
    Do you have the capability of fixing a crossthreaded bolt? I can't secure my center console due to the bolt being crossthreaded, so I fear I may need to tap it out with a larger bolt. I don't have the tools or know-how... do you?

    I have the know how but, not the tools!

    I looked up Lowes/Home Depot near Guy's address and there's a Lowes about 20 minutes from there. Hopefully we can find a suitable bolt to replace the old one... not sure what the factory thread is, but the head is 13mm.
