need to know how to change the headlamp on 2004 Lag2?

Hi, I need to know if there is a 'how to' on changing the headlamp on a 2004 laguna 2.

The plastic lens cover shattered after something hit it at 30mph. Sadly a replacement is over 180 from Renault. I managed to source one on the bay for a cool tenner+ p&p and am going to fit it myself. Whats involved in removing the headlamp from the car?

2004 DCi Lag 2 Previdge with Xenons.
The replacement headlamp is Halogen. I'm hoping to disassemble the Halogen unit and swap over the lens cover to my Xenon unit.
I've seen similar operations carried out on BMW's so I'm familiar with complexity of this operation and resealing the unit.

should just be a few mounts?

Have a look at the replacement lamp for the mounting points, Disconnect the wiring and go!

Getting the replacement lense of the replacement will be some fun. I am lead to believe they use an ultra violet activated adhesive during manufacture which means the adhesive continues to harden - its the same process of as used in many dental fillings
