you do not need to remove your bumper when extracting the headlamp enclosure... just the obvious attachment bolts

Check the install guides for "painting headlights". This will give you a nice pictorial of how to remeave the enclosures from your vehicle

if you remove the single corner screw from the bumper and have someone pull it aside - the entire bumper does not need to be removed
