Default Headlight removal

Hello all. I am looking to remove my headlamps and the instructions on the tech dump are straight forward but I am struggling. I have removed the upper trim, undone the bolts for the grille and headlamps. The dump states to remove the trim on the top grille but it is attached the front bumper and I am afraid to break it. Anyone removed theirs on a D3? Thanks

I removed my headlights when I did the cambelt and followed this guide.

Thanks Matt. I was hoping the bumper wouldn't have to come off but it looks like it does

Oh yes, it does have to come off. There are two bolts that are not accessible (see attached). So wheels off, wheel liners out to access the bolts holding the bumper. Then the bumper near the bottom of the wheel arch has some clips, be brave and pull! Keep note of the screws and bolts of where they go.
