     It holds a rubber cover, gasket, that can be easily pulled away now. Do it and you will gain access to two 10 mm bolts, as you can see below. Remove these two bolts and the one on the upper side of the headlight. Near this last one, there is a plastic tab that secures the assembly furthermore. Release it and pull out the lens.
