Red face replace headlamps with angel eyes pictorial?

HI, new to forum. updating look of my 2000 E46, I've bought aftermarket angel eyes and wondering if anyone has a pictorial guide to removing old units and fitting new?

Googling has proved fruitless so far.

thanks in advance.

by the way, i had a go tonight and the lower screws seemed to be inaccesible without removing the bumper.

all advice appreciated

Depends on the kit you have but this is a pretty good guide to follow:

Thanks for the help. I got to that stage last night but have DEPO full headlamp units to replace and have been struggling to find bottom fasteners to remove original units.

I think part of the problem is I have headlight washers which are preventing me removing the lower trim altogether. I've been told to look for some torx fastenenrs under there but can't see any.

I really want a picture showing me where all fasteners for entire headlamp unit are located.

As I say Google has proved fruitless.

they are on the back of the headlight. one is right behind. and the other is wedge between the headlight and the grill. the headlight washers shouldn't be a problem.
