Default Service tools?

The service manual mentions several service tools. Anyone know where they can be purchased?

I can't say for sure, but I have purchased "special tools" from Ford, Chevy, and Kawasaki for various vehicles I have owned. Call 'em and ask!

nothing yet... but there is a bezel tool that looks like it would help prevent scratching. most everything else i would probably just use something else.

Hey, Jim, me again. If you're talking about the headlight bezel, right after I got my XCT two+ years ago, I went to my local Harbor Freight and bought this set of nylon pry bars: http://www.harborfreight.com/nylon-p...-pc-69668.html . Set is almost always on sale, and I probably had a 20% off + free flashlight coupon.

These -- any of the four, really -- are the nuts for taking off the headlight bezel and speaker grills: hard and thin enough to get the job done, and soft enough not to mar or scratch anything. If you don't have a HF nearby, I think most auto parts stores have similar stuff. And I believe the Vic special tool is something like that, too, FWIW, and probably way over-priced.

Cheers,

Bill P.

The headlight chrome ring just pries out with your fingers. No special tool needed and no scratching.
