HOW TO Remove ENTIRE Headlight Assembly '99 SLK

Alright, after hours and hours of searching online, I have found many dozen threads of people replacing the standard headlight unit with a projector with halo type... However, the one step that is absolutely destroying my life is the back lower third nut to remove the original light assembly. It is never mentioned on several detailed step by step write ups... It's blown over with "just remove the light assembly". I did find one thread that mentioned that you do not have to remove the bumper. I've looked deep inside with a mirror and you could not get it from underneath anyhow. ???

Does anyone know the secret to getting to that back lower 3rd bolt?

A million thanks... I'll look into that tomorrow and see if it works... I would have never thought to look up something this specific in the owners manual. I'm so grateful for this to save a lot of mechanics time and expense of install.

No wonder nobody mentioned it... it's SO simple once you KNOW the secret tab to press between the lights. Thanks again. All wired up in just minutes.
