i removed mine yesterday to install some PIAA headlight bulbs (which are awesome by the way). i had trouble at first too. i removed the three screws holding the front bumper piece on, and i literally had to pull it forward (it is pretty bendable), and then slide the headlight assembly out... while being carefull not to scratch any paint. it really is a pain in the ass to get out, you just gotta play with it. don't be afraid to pull the front facia forward enough to get the headlight out, it won't break or anything unless your really rough with it. hope that helps. good luck.
