Removing 2012 FL headlight.

Any guides how to remove a FL headlight , I've sourced a replacement part but the underneath of the headlight has a connector so is this a bumper of to switch out?

Thanks

Ive done it here but cant recall how I did.

Put it this way, if I can do it anyone can.

IIRC, undo the screws on top and I think thats it? It just sits in there? Pull it out with a wiggle. I must have found a guide somewhere when I done it so I'll take a look.

@DucDude That`s a preFl guide. For the facelift version they made it much harder and more anoying.
I found this guide useful when I had to change mine last year, even though he said he couldn't pull them out. Just take your time and be careful not scratch it when pulling the headlight out / putting it back in. The shape of the headlights and bumper make it harder. What I did was pull the outer part of the headlight while pushing the inner part just a bit, and after that just wiggled it and pulled it until it came out. Took me about half an hour each. Good luck.

You'll have to excuse my brain fart. I was looking through the manual and it said "Removal of FL headlight" which I'm sure meant Front Left and not Face Lift lol

This is the one for the FL models - not sure how much it's going to help. It does look a whole lot more involved as it does say you have to remove the bumper cover. I haven't done it myself so I'm sure someone else can be more helpful.
