Exclamation 1994 Crown Vic. HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT

I purchased a new pair of headlights off of ebay for my 1994 Ford Crown Victoria. Like almost all of them out there. Mine are very oxidized and cloudy. I have tried sanding, restoration kits, etc. I just want new ones.

Can someone please help me removing the old ones? I have no idea how remove them. It doesn't look like a standard screw/bolt. I will get a pic if you guys don't know what they look like exactly.

Thanks ahead of time :)

On the back are 3 clips. They slide up and then the headlight can be removed. You have to spread the 2 sides apart before they will come up. I usually use a hose removal tool and pry one side at a time on the clips.

Hey thanks for the response. I think i see what your talking about.

So the black cap looking thing and screw don't serve a purpose?

I am going to post a picture soon...

Here is the picture, are the 2 sides you are referring the prong looking clips holding the screw/cap in place?

No. That's the part that sticks through from the front. The clip is the part with the small holes in it, that slides over the black part. Look at the new headlights and you should see the groove. They have to be pulled out away from the black part because they stick in the grooves. Look close and you can see what I mean.

Ok, I am confused lol.
(I don't have the new headlights yet)
What are you referring to as the black part at this point. Is it the Cap with slits around the screw in my picture?

Re: 1994 Crown Vic. HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT

Yes. That part shoves through from the front. The threaded part is the adjuster. They both go out the front, If you look at the slits, you'll see the clip sets in one and is won't pull up unless you put something in the little round hole and pull it slightly away fom the black part as you pull up on the clip. It's like a u shaped clip that slides down the black part but the clip slips in the black part and won't le it slide up without moving them away. Let me know if that helps.

Re: 1994 Crown Vic. HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT

Ok so in my pic I have the Adjuster and black part.
Are these connected to the Headlights then?

I see how the clips stick into one of the slits in the black piece. All I need to do is put something in the whole of each clip and pull them away. That exposes the other clip that I have to slide out. Okay, thank you SO much for your help!!!

Also, how do you know the difference between Base Model and LX. Would it say LX on the back?, Mine doesn't...

I am planning on ordering corner lights too. Can you tell based on this pic:

Re: 1994 Crown Vic. HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT

Check the Vin # the sixth and seventh VIN positions are as follows:

73 - Crown Victoria, Fleet, 4-Door Sedan. This is the code for a base model civilian Crown Victoria.

74 - Crown Victoria, LX, 4-Door Sedan.
