Your gonna have to pull the bumper. The headlight will be glued together so it will be difficult to take apart without damaging it.

You should get some masking tape and tape off the painted area of the front end surrounding the headlight, which will save you big time. Seen way too many people scratch their paint from a simple job like this.

Prevention is key.

Figured it out, kinda. There are two bolts right next to the fender that need to be removed, two clips on the frame that need to be undone, and a snap on clip that you need to unsnap towards the front of the car. Not sure about the electrical wires though. Hopefully these pictures help!
