Four 10mm bolts hold the headlight. First take the corner light out by CAREFULLY unclipping it, and pushing it out, this will expose two of the bolts. Then take out the grille by taking the two clips which hold it-they are right on top, easy to pull up. This should expose the other two bolts holding the headlight.

There are TWO types of headlights, actually fronts, for this car-WITH fog lights and WITHOUT. The foglight is between the grille and the headlight on each side on the FOG type, even the grilles are different. Make sure it is the right type.
