    as above, am i rightin saying that if you undo the small torques in the wheel arch liner, then undo the bolt that fastens the corner of the bumper to the inner wing, then the bumper should flex enough to be able to get to the last bolt under the headlamp?

    You can do it without removing the bumper, bit of a pain but I managed! Just undo one side of the bumper and you can just get at the other torx's, gotta push the bumper down a bit at the same time though! Just remember when you've removed one light, re attach the bumper at the side you removed the light from to keep the bumper on.
