Hi I'm Kevin you need to remove front bumper to access lower headlight bolts

First remove the 2 plastic rivets at the top middle of the bumper, then the 3 plastic rivets underneath centre, then the 2 screws either side in the wheel arches, after this hold the edges at the corners with 2 hands and give a sharp tug, this should unclip the cover at that end, you probably wont need to completely take it off, as you should then have enough room to access the 2 lower headlamp bolts.
