G35 Coupe Headlight Removal Guide (3 Simple Steps)

I put together a little photo tutorial of how to remove the coupe headlights in order to custom paint and/ or install Demon Eyes.

Prep: Lay down a towel or in this case a rubber mat in front of the vehicle to protect the bumper from hitting the ground.

* Find a safe place to store all of the rivets and bolts you will remove from the vehicle.


Step #1: Tools Needed- (1) Medium/ Small Flat Head Screwdriver.

- Open the hood and locate the 7 plastic rivets holding the grille and bumper to the radiator support.


-With your flat head screwdriver pop up the rivet and remove it.


- Now proceed to the driver side and turn your wheel all the way to the right so you can access the fenderwell. Remove the 3 rivets in the fenderwell in the same fashion you did for the grill.



Step# 2: Tools Needed- 10mm Socket Wrench w/ Extension.

- Pull back the fenderwell (using the flat head screwdriver where needed) to expose the (2) 10mm bolts securing the bumper to the fender.


- Using your 10mm socket remove these bolts and put in a safe place.

- Reach into the fenderwell and remove the plug from the corner lights.


- Repeat this process on the passenger side.

- Now the bumper is free and can be pulled forward. **Add painters tape to the fender to protect from marks caused by the bumper**

Step# 3: Tools Needed- 10mm Socket Wrench w/ Extension.

- Now that the bumper is pulled forward the 4 bolts holding the headlight in are exposed.


- With your 10mm socket wrench remove the following bolts:

Bolt #1-


Bolt #2-


Bolt #3-


Bolt #4-


- Now you can pull the headlight out and unclip the headlight harness.


- Put headlight in oven and repeat Step #3 on passenger side.

nice write up, i was just wondering how to do this this weekend. beside the pics not working, you may have a duplicate picture: DSC00172.JPG.

stupid question, why is it necessary to put the headlights in the oven? Or is this after the custom paint / demon eyes?

You need to put them in the oven to get casing to open.

I was also thinking about doing this again recently. I have some concerns about not getting the headlight sealed good enough to prevent condensation from developing. I though if I could fine a strap-based vice/clamp that could wrap around the housing and keep it pressed very firmly together, I'd feel more comfortable trying it myself.

Don't the headlight casings have a hole in them to allow breathing anyway? Of course I'd want a good seal too, but I was under the impression that they aren't completely sealed as it is.

Yes. You are correct. See the following

It states "All current headlamp assemblies are vented to the atmosphere (not sealed)."
