    Once you have a replacement motor and the headlight you will see how it comes out.

    From memory you twist the motor then tilt it as you remove it out the locator in the headlight.

    As yours is pre facelift you can get away with undoing the clip under the bonnet on the bumper near the headlight you want to remove and if you undo the screws on the same side at the wheel arch. Pull the bumper outwards from the side fo the car there is enough room if you have a driver short enough to undo the bolt under the head light. The other two bolts are on top the headlight - after all three are removed undo the headlight loom - slide the maroon lever on the plug and it will become free. Headlight can be removed from the car.
