Headlight removal requires the removal of the Front Bumper Cap assembly.
I went through this whole process when I replaced my US Lights with European
First take off the bottom body pan. 2. Disconnect Turn Signals and Parking Lamps
3. Remove the 4 nuts on each side that hold the Bumper Shock Absorber Assembly in 
place. 4. Slide Bumper Cap off. 5. Remove the bolts that hold the Headlight Frame 
Assembly. 6. Remove screws that hold the Chrome Trim Piece and Wiper Assembly,
 and careful on the headlight wipers. Voila, Headlights comeoff.
If you find a shortcut, please let me know.
