Headlight Clips

Is there an easy way to remove the clips that hold in the headlights without damaging them? Between his clips and mine I would hope some would be salvageable.

My buddy wrecked his truck and we're swapping out my stuff for his.

Chrome bumer/grill, 02' headlights, cup holder, cd player.

My truck is looking pimp.

you talkin about the metal clips or the plastic ones? Snap ring pliers might work on the metal ones.

The two metal ones on top...

They had plastic at some point? Maybe that's why I thought these would brake, as I've heard of people breaking them from readings.

Haha, ya.

I'm pretty nervous about switching them out with his. I really don't want to break anything and be at square one again. It might just stay as it is.

The truck looks 100% better with just the added chrome in front.

We went for it today. Got the bumper and headlights in.

Those clips on his truck came out easy, and workable.

Pics from today, and the day I bought it 3? years ago.

Looks so much better than the work truck front end. Oh and the single cab on the right of the pics isn't looking to healthy, might need and alignment job but for the life of me I can't figure out why it looks odd.
