It was done more as a general awareness item. Before I found the battery part number I assumed that I would need to go buy a whole new flashlight, as did several other people.

Also, I promised that I'd do a how-to for everybody, so I wanted to follow-through on that.

But yeah, once i started in on this, i thought "this is really easy"

Its the same for most of my how to's.
That being said, it is really nice to have a couple pictures to look at before getting into something. Sometimes they offer an easier way to do stuff and could save some hate.

You got a "How-To" take off a CSRT's front bumper laying around somewhere?

If UN4GTBL throws together one of those I would be concerned, and wondering who's CSRT he was disassembling.
That being said, I believe there is a how to somewhere on the forum.
If I ever get some free time, I'll make one, as I have to take mine apart to get at the broken clip I have on the passenger side. Had a droopy corner since I bought it from the stealership. They won't fix it without a fight.

Right on..well, I figure it can't be much harder than the NSRT's front bumper... I noticed there are a lot less screws and more clips though. I hate that, because it's hard not to break them. At some point, I'm going to do an FMIC and black housing headlight swap so I'll be needing to take off the front bumper.

yeah all those plastic clips are annoying as hell.

when i was doing my headlights, i actually didn't put the clips back on my car for over a year. as i wanted to make sure they wouldn't leak.

Holy have we gone off topic.

On that note.... I would love to see a thread with pics and info about the clips. I really prefer to have a couple spare on hand when doing any pannel removals.
