Renault Master Headlight

I need to remove the off-side headlight and sidelight of my Renault Master (0 and would appreciate anyone telling me the correct way to do it.
There's a bolt holding the top and another at the side but when they are taken out the headlight unit still refuses to come out.
I can't see any more obvious bolts holding it in and any helpful advice thankfully received.

Some time now since I has one but is there a release at the bottom on the inside?

I took the near-side headlight out when I was fitting DRLs to our 2007 Master. IIRC, the sidelights are held in place on springs that are retained behind the headlight. They just unclip and "come away in your hand".

The headlamp shell itself is also held in by the adjusters - see attached pics.

No longer motorhoming due to illness, but always prepared to help by sharing any experience I may have.

Many thanks for all the helpful advice and pictures.

I've managed to remove the headlight quite easily following your input.

Firstly I pulled the spring, rear of headlight, back to release the sidelight – which allowed me to ease it forward and out.

I then undid the top and side screws of the headlight.

Then I took out three screws holding the plastic grill, see picture, which allowed the grill to be flexible enough to bend forward an inch or two.

Then with a screwdriver I gently levered the headlamp forward out of the retaining hole at the bottom, see picture, and with a bit of jiggling the whole unit came out reasonably smoothly.

The whole operation should take no more than a minute or two now I know what I'm doing.

Reversal is just as easy.

Again thanks.

Keith

Good - now I will refer to this thread if ever I have to take mine out. I forgot to fully document what I did apart from taking the pics!
