I had the same post a few days ago when I was trying to take mine off. There isn't really a trick. I just ended up pulling/pushing and bending the top of the fascia until it came out. They didn't come out like the owners manual says, which is pull the right side out first. I believe that I actually pushed the outside of the light into the fender and then lifted the inside section of the light up while bending out the fascia a bit.

unscrew the 1st screw on each side to the top bumper. so you can lift up on the bumper to wedge the headlight out. try that...

i took off all 3 on top, still no help. im afraid to push/bend the fasia like the otehr suggested because my luck ill f*** it up. im aggravated as hell...lol

you just have to wiggle that shit around till you find that sweet spot to get it off. i've had my headlights off many times. it just takes a lot of patience like everything else on our cars u know? good luck on it bro!

I know what you mean. I started to take it off and then got mad at it an stopped. I thought I was going to brake something too. It did seem more difficult than it should have been. Like I said I lifted the inside bracket of the light off first. I did this by lifting it straight up. And it helped to first push the outside part of the light into the fender.

Just did this friday night, and have done it to my old SRT before too. Just unbolt the 3 bolts on the front facia, and then just [email protected]#&ing pull those things out. Try to bend the facia the least amount possible, but i didn't have a problem. I didn't want to force it out eather, but i got so mad i did finally and it worked. That plastic can take a lot so don't be afraid. If you think getting it off it hard, just wait till you put it back on. Need even more bending (or so it seems) don't be afraid though, that is the best piece of advise i can give you.
