Do Not use this method!
1. There is no reason to remove the whole lift and bucket assembly.
2. Reinstalling them is harder then many think. The 4 "slotted" holes are slots for a reason. (ETA: 4 slotted hole to mount on studs on "firewall.")
Most don't bother and HL in up position is still low. Example my aiming section in my cave...
Bottom of HL is lower then the hood by ~1/2".
I haven't had time to fix this problem. You can fix most of that by moving 4 mount holes to bottom. Most people just use top of holes. I did because of time to fix motor issues. (weather at the time was getting bad.)
Even GM method in OM etc sucks but won't affect aiming etc. I've tried and is a pain to do that. Worse w/ one hand to use.
This method have been covered in my Cave, Headlights
and PFF for Many years but only added pictures and long version in cave page today. This method Does Not affect bulb aiming etc.
Unplug HL Motor. <-- Very important for Gen 1 motors! Gen 2 doesn't care.
Unplug HL bulb.
Loosen the HL motor to unload the bucket.
bolt at the link connects to HL assembly. T30 bolt head
Carefully Flip up the HL assembly to remove the trim and HL chrome.
