Headlights

My 2000 Bounder 39z headlights are in need of replacing. Anyone know how to get them out of the grill . Both are half full of water and I want to replace them but I can't get them out. Can anyone help.

On my Discovery you open the front hood. Reach down to the backside of the headlights and take the mounting bolts out. And then they just slide out to the front.
Where you unhook the wiring.

Then you will have to remove the bracket from the headlight that bolts it to the back.

Looks like you can unscrew the bulbs from the back, but they're really tight, I don't know if they'll brake or not . The light itself has little clips on the bolts so should I try pulling them off or screwing them off.

Looks like they little clips on the back of the bolts do they pull out or screw out. The bulbs look like they should turn out of the housing but they are really tight and I'm afraid that I'll brake the off .

Do those little clips look like a wing nut...if so they are threaded on. Remove like a nut, dont worry about the bulb until you pull the unit out the front of the coach....that is when you disconnect the wires...reinstall in reverse order...good luck.

I need to replace the headlights on my 2000 Newmar Dutch Star. Not the bulbs but the whole headlight- both the reflective material on the inside and the lens on the outside have gotten opaque with age, the material has degraded. That's why I need to replace the whole headlight.

See if you can see a ser. num. somewhere on the lens and run that on google and see what you get.
