I tried to reconnect these for ages until I watched a video of someone else doing it.
Don’t try to line up the connectors by looking at them with the screen leaning on a soda can, just hold the two halves in each hand and line the first one up by feel. Really. After that it’s plain sailing.
Even with great lighting I couldn’t make this work with the bits on the bench - yet when I picked them up it was really easy to feel them line up. I had all four popped back on in about 60 seconds.
Thanks for the guide, this was super easy to perform and took less than 10 minutes.
I had to squeeze the headlight assembly and holder together really hard to get the connector to seat properly - at first nothing worked when I put it back together...
