Default Installing a headlight assembly

Hello, first post!

Ok so I'm going to be replacing the front left headlight assembly on my girlfriends 04 Lancer es tomorrow. Last winter she slid into a cement barrier, breaking the headlight and shifting her bumper about 1/4". I feel like it will be a pretty straight forward swap but is there anything I should pay extra attention too? Any advice or help would be awesome.

its really strait forward. there's 6 bolts, i'm pretty sure it's six, that hold the bumper on. you'll need to take off the black plastic weather trim underneath first, but you take out the bumper and then there is 2 bolts on top and one on the bottom/back of each headlight. super easy. took me about 45 minutes to take off the bumper, replace both headlight, clean out the radiator and all the little hiding spots, and put it all back together.

good luck
