Removing headlight: Doblo

Does anyone know how to remove whole headlight section on a 2002 doblo?

I have undone the 2 bolts/ screws but it just seems to wobble - it does not want to actually come out. Really after someone who has actually done this.

Thanks, K

You and me too - the elearn is about as much good as a chocolate tea-pot on this one. From the picture, there seems to be two lower "tabs" that may - or may not - have holes in them.
Presumably these are screwed to the front - either under the bumper or from inside the engine compartment - but I must admit I got as far as you - took the obvious bolts out and wobbled it and pulled at it, but I was only futzing about wanting to clean the "glass" so I left it at that.

Re: Removing headlight: Doblo

Holy Thread Resurrection, Batman!
But
After undoing the two 10mm bolts top and towards grille, there are two press-stud type fixings at the bottom of each headlight unit. You have to pull the unit forwards until they unpop. Push from behind is possible but try pulling the outer edge, front of the wing, should unpop the outer one. There are some other mouldings that might catch too so jiggle 'em about after freeing the studs. Then unclip the wiring connector and you're good to go.
Found out when rebuilding the front after a prang....
