For composite headlamps:

2. Headlamp to the vehicle.

4. Plastic caps that cover the headlamp retaining pins.
For sealed beam headlamps:

Remove or Disconnect:
1. Screws that retain the headlamp retaining ring.
2. Headlamp retaining rings.
3. Headlamp from the vehicle.

The '97 is one of those years that a lot of people ask questions about. If you have the composite headlamps and wouldn't mind snapping some pictures of the plastic caps and the retaining pins, I'm sure that would help out a lot of people in the future! Thanks!!
