hi guys,
need help removing the headlights. so far there are 3 visible bolts, 2 on top (not shown in the pic) then 1 at the bottom (shown in the pic) i've succesfully taken all these 3 out. but something still holds the headlight, i've no idea what it is, cause i can't see whats beneath the headlight.
someone said there might be a clip, but i can't locate it, if i force my way to push, i might just break the clip or whatever that still holds the headlight.

Correct, after removing the three bolts just pull it forward, you won't break the retaining clip. As a precaution, you might want to place some painter's tape on the bumper cover just around the headlight to prevent the assembly from scratching the paint when removing or inserting the headlight.

thanks!!! it really works! i thought i wasnt gonna remove it and gave it up.
the grill got in the way, so i opened up the screws and the bolts on top of the grill. after the grill's top part is loosen, the headlight is even easier to pull out.
