7. Align slots on bulb with corresponding bosses on headlight assembly. Insert bulb into headlight and

combination light assembly.

8. Install back cover to hold bulb in place.

Much too vague, completely useless. Anyone could have written this because it lacks any meaningful details. Not even a single picture. Why even bother to write this, it's not going to do anything to help.
