need help with headlight install

I got my new headlights and I am tryting to install them. The new lights have some kind of mechanism on the top mount that looks like it helps adjust the beam. That part is not allowing me to screw the light in for some reason. I'm thinking I need to remove that thing and use the stock one from my old lights. Anyone have a trick to get it to work? I just worry that if I try to remove the old ones to use that they will break and I am SOL... Any tips? Thanks guys...

Re: need help with headlight install

Figured it out... The headlights I bought came with the adjuster mounted on the wrong spot. I relocated it and all is good.... Since the old one was broken a few months ago, that is why it didnt seem right....

Re: need help with headlight install

The nuts you need to remove behind the lights are really fun to get to. Removing the batteries first might be a good idea. I almost think it is easier to remove an IPR with a butter knife.
