Okay, how would i go about installing a new header panel for my cougar. I know i'd have to remove the headlights, corner's and grill (which is broken). and remove the old one, but how do i remove the headlights/corners/and the old header panel?
im not sure if yours is the same but i hope this helps. to remove the head lights there are small retaining screw/clip on the back. u have to turn those and allign the tabs with the cut out slots and the headlight will slip off. corners are easy. 2 bolts on each side. remover the bolts and then gently pull toward the front of the car. they are held in by ribbed rods that will hold it in place along with the 2 bolts. the header panel i have no idea tho. never had to replace mine yet! but now that i said it i will probably be doing it sometime soon. hope this helps you get them off. they are easy to do just have patients with the headlights cause they are kinda annoying. oh also just know that the header panel might be plastic but if you slide your hand across it with a lot of pressure you will end up with stiches, i found out the hard way. sliced my hand wide open and bled for 3 hours before i decided to go to the hospital, took 5 stices to close it up. ******* plastic header panel!
