I have purchased a set of Hella headlights (OEM), but am having trouble removing the old units. Can someone help me? I need to know how to remove the painted trim piece below the headlight. I can see an indent depress on the trim (inward to the unit, and from looking at the new unit, it appears the trim needs to be slid inward (meaning towrd the center of the grille). I do not want to break anything, so if anyone can give some info, please do.
