    headlight removal

    Got to get my pass side headlight out now ( 8L 2002)

    Firstly, i see there is 2 securing bolts at the top for the headlight , whats at the bottom ???

    Have seen thread for bumper removal , could i just get away with releasing the pass side and bottom bolts and letting it drop slightly to get to headlight lower mounts or would bumper need to come right off to carry this out ??

    Ok cheers guys, have found this , so nothing underneath then , looking at these spare units i have , i also see there is what looks like a locating peg that looks lke it may go into a rubber grommet ...

    so looking at all this , do you think i can get away with just loosening the bumper away from the top , then once all headlight bolts are out ( 3 bolts ) it will come out , like i said with this lug , i would presume light would need to pull away to the side first away from wing ???????
