Changing Euro headlight lens - R107 500SL

I lost a lens to a rock recently and have purchased a new one. I'm trying to remove the broken lens and am having difficulties. I've turned the three clips at the bottom of the broken lens but the lens seems to be hanging up on the attached signal light when I try to pull it free. Do I have to detach the signal light first?

Thanks for any insight!

There are clips on the top, also. DO NOT LOSE THEM. You really have to remove the entire assembly in order to do this "safely", without damaging anything. It isn't hard to remove the assembly.

After that, it's tight, but doable. You will probably discover that the seals are crap. I haven't found a good US supplier for them so I refurbished them as best as I could.
