C320 Headlights Removal

2003 C320 coupe
I purchased two new complet headligts units ( upgraded toExenon Hid with balast)
It looks like it should be easy lol
The two bolts on the top are easy and the complete headlight seems free except for something on the lower side close to the quarter pannel, you cant even see in the let alone get a wrench in there if needed.
If someone has changed one and could tell me te procedure to getting the bolt out I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

Hallo there. I had to remove my front bumper and beleive that this is the only way to get to all the bolts that keeps the Headlights in tact.
There is a lot of info on the forum of how to remove the front bumper.

Where did you get the headlights from and how much? I was also thinking about doing this. And for the LED strips for the front I am also thinking about this, but I was planning on removing the foglights if I do so, so it doesn't look too much

Enjoy your c230 coupe!

I'm not sure if I can say ebay lol but I bougt off ebay and I went with the black instead if the clear silver like it comes with,and that was a great call looks so so nice!
They cost me about 650.00 thats an entire new healigt with a xenon 8000k hid and balasts installed in the low beam only as well as a much nice blinker in it..

The inside day time running ligts are come with the old school buld which looks rediculous and im having hid or led installed in it this weekend.
Also I love your idea! I'm going to have the fogs removed and go woth the led ligt bar that is on the newer benz.
Also an led trunk ligt and rear tale ligts as well as all new led interior ligts..
I will take a pick of thr new logt tomorrow ans show you what the black looks like installed, nigt and day compared tothr stock ones.

Oh i think I know which one your talking about! the one with the black housing, I was actually planning on getting those once I get my money up for those. Keep me updated on how well they work for you

I definitely want to see a pic of the LED! I was thinking of either tinting my foglights yellow like JDM style, or getting LED's. I was leaning towards the yellow foglights but maybe your pics will help me decide.
