Ya, i got the headlights to work. You basically have to remove the three screws holding the headlights into the black plastic and transfer all the mounting clips and stuff from the old headlights onto the new ones and they should fit into the black mount. hope that helps but if you need anymore. Let me know!
So I was looking through the threads and I saw you had a pre 7/96 f150. I bought some headlights for mine (5/96) and they have the wierd mounting bracket issue too. I was wondering if you ever solved that problem, and if so how? I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks.
