Remove the LEFT headlight by taking out the 10mm stem nut and gently using a pry bar, outside edge first, then inside edge. Trying to remove the headlight rapidly will result in a broken plastic tab that will need to be epoxied.Use 2" hole saw to create an access by cutting through the headlamp plastic cavity behind the headlight, a strong light will reflect onto the relay and you can see the bracket part below and between the battery and front frame toward the front of the car. With the headlight assembly out, pry the white ball socket fittings and oiled them for ease of refit. The piece of the cavity was saved because it is critical to keep water out of the relay area. There is a small red tab on the connector of the relay that needs to be pressed and the red tab moved to the side. Then insert a screwdriver into the bottom of the connector to release the black plastic tab that locks the connectors together. Hold the new relay in your hand. Push the red tab back across the connector body and push the two halves together, they will now lock It is critical that a good flat install be performed or the part will fail and you're out $75 and the time to redo it all over again. Use the new screws in the part bag, the old ones will not tighten enough for a good grounding of the part. Use metal duct tape to tape the plastic piece back into the hole and then sealed it with two more pieces. Pressing the headlight assembly back works best if you start from the outer edge and then press the bottom edge in.
