Wow. Just wondering why you'd want to remove them... but my guess is that you have to remove the front facia completely. I think some of the guys here have done it - hopefully they can give you some DIY pointers. Good luck!

Once again... why?

Yes.

BTW if you are thinking of baking the orange out, think again.

First remove the Bumper skin

The light is on a "headlight arm"

You need to release the 5 screws holding it

2 by the radiator intake side, 2 ontop and 1 round the back somewhere

You can then remove the headlight from the "arm" by removeing the screws holding it on
