    Take of the front bumper first. Two torx screws in each arch, two poppers underneath where the front of the bonnet sits and 4 push pins underneath the middle of the bumper

    I found it just as easy to remove the airbox on the drivers side and the washer bottle filler neck on the passenger side when i fitted mine,and i have fitted my hid kit to a prefacelift and a facelift and did it this way on both,there was no need to remove the headlights.

    My holes where misshapen (oo-er missus!) - I had some rubber washers and used 2 of those to create a seal either side. It's whatever works I guess
