Last night I was driving around with my headlights on of course and I hit a rather large bump in the road and it jolted my car around quite a bit. Well in the same instant the inside pivot point on my drivers side headlight broke and jammed my headlight between the front "eyebrow". Hoe easy is it to fix this and how expensive? Oh, when it jammed itself down there the motor kept on trying to get it back up and it ended up draining my battery overnight.

A word of warning: The Allen screws that hold these things onto the car can be REALLY ugly to remove. Use the *correct size* Allen wrench, and *don't* use one with a "ball-end" or "wobble end" unless there is NO other choice. The heads strip out reasonably easily. (Ask me how I know...)

Liquid Wrench (or Kroyl or PB Catalyst) is your friend! So is tapping with a hammer. So is repeating that treatment once or twice a day for a week...
