Unfortunately Yes

I just retrofitted xenons to mine.








It isn't to difficult. I did it without removing wheels or the inner arch liner.
The arch liner is pretty tough.

The only other bad bit is the unclipping at the corner by the lights (indicator) as it feels like it will break but luckily on mine it didn't.

I just re-read your post and am confused as to how you have removed your old headlight without removing bumper?
Are your lights like this?
