help with tyc

I just searched and couldn't find an answer about a metal brace that comes with your new tyc headlights.The photocopied page(which is so unreadable and can't see any of the diagrams} says that from the factory the headlights in the high or low beam.i can't tell which has a brace that needs to be removed before you can install your headlights.I don't see such a brace myself.So anyone that has done this can yoy tell me where the brace is and how to remove it.

took it to a shop that sells tyc and they said the brace wasn't on this one. anyway it's installed and working fine just have to adjust the daytime running lights they are aimed a little high.

where does the brace go? if it goes under the headlights, then its not supossed to come with it, cuz you already have it. head lights and tail lights come ready to be put on.

take off your front bumper.... the brace is under the headlight, it will be VERY easy to take out your headlight... you will not beable to take out your headlight unless you take your front bumper off, four bolts two in each wheel well and take all the plastic pops underneath and the two under the hood, do a seach for it and you'll find out how to take it off

btw, nice headlights 1lif2liv : )

First, Thanks for the comment
Second, it wasnt the brace that he said "come with TYC"
The ones you talked about was the stock metal bars that always ON the car and yes, you have to take it of in order to take the headlight off.

a fender bender shouldnt have messed up thealightment of ur headlights because the adjusting screws are in the headlight itself....if ur headlight is still on and it looks lie it fits, then its probably not the fenderbender......
