I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Hopefully you have gotten it removed by now, but if not, make sure that the headlamp is not catching the bumper cover as you are pulling it out.

Also, there is a retainer clip that sometimes make pulling the headlamp assembly out tough and you have use quite a bit of force. you can also use a plastic trim tool to slip between the headlamp and fender at the outside edge of the headlamp and pry it outwards as someone pulls on it
