Recon LED Headlights Installation: Ford F-150
February 6, 2023
This is a comprehensive step-by-step instruction of the U-bar projector headlights for 2015 – 2017 Ford F-150s. In this instruction, we will cover everything from the headlight details to installation.
Remember, regardless of which Recon headlight that you choose if you own a 15 to 17 F-150, the installation is going to be identical.
- First, remove all of the plastic pushpins on the headlight trim panel followed by the two 7-millimeter bolts, holding the fender trim onto the vehicle. Then gently pull the fender trim away from the body. Unpop the clips. After that, gently pull away the plastic trim around the headlight assembly.
- Next, remove all the ten-millimeter bolts, that hold the lower panel to the vehicle. Remove the three bolts holding the headlight to the header panel and the rad support.
- After all that, you can give the headlight a gentle pull and pull it away from the vehicle. Disconnect all of the connectors from the headlight and remove it. Next, slop the turn signal bulb end socket from the old headlight into the new Recon headlight. Plug the Recon harness into your factory harness.
- Next line up the dowel pins on the headlights of the hole in the fender and the top rad support clip, and push the new Recon light into place. Install the two top headlight bolts but leave them loose to ensure the headlight is flush and tighten them at the end.
- Next, we’re going to reinstall the lower panel below the headlight, then the plastic trims around the headlight assembly and ensure that it snaps in pop defendant trim back into place. Then reinstall the 2 7-millimeter screws.
When it comes to the installation, it was pretty easy. It has taken about an hour for us to do both sides. Te end result is great, as the truck looks totally different with these headlights installed.
