I have not touched the car. I only have the driver's side headlight lens which i am trying to replace.

I was involved in an accident. When the body shop replaced my bumper, they only replaced the passenger side lens. So the driver side looked really bad.

Your head light lense has retainers that hold it in place and are usually glued to the housing as well.The retainers need removed then it may need to be carefully peeled away from the head light housing then replaced. for these retainers as well as any other retainers around the head lamp lense and see if when you remove them that the lense comes off or try and carefully peel it off to see if you can then glue the new one on with a silicone type sealant and install the retainers.
