I'm replacing the headlights in my '96 and can't figure out how to get the coolant reservoir out of the way. Can anyone shed some light before I break the mounting bracket? Thanks!

Just lift it up.

There is no mounting bracket per se. There is a bracket it slides onto that is on the core support but it just slides into a slot in the reservoir. There are two finger tabs on either side of the reservoir that you just pull up on.

PS headlight bulb replacement

So on passenger side (USA) to replace the headlight bulb you have to simply pull up on reservoir to remove it to access the bulb?
It sure looks that way.

Correct. Just pull up on the finger tabs while wiggling and it will POP loose with enough muscle. You can just lower it down and lean it against something still attached so you don't lose fluid.
