Renault Laguna I - spot/fog light replacement

I've a Laguna 1 with the round spot/fog lights (year 2000). A few weeks ago a stone smashed the glass on one so it needs replacing. I thought I'd take it out before replacing it - a 2 minute job - easy.
No such luck!
My Haynes manual says "undo the mounting bolt under the bumper then release the upper mounting lugs then pull the light unit forward out of the bumper".
The mounting bolt just seems to turn both ways freely. The bolt doesn't drop down or come out so i suspect it's sheared or the thread has gone. The light is loose but I can't free the mounting lugs (I just have cut and gashed fingers where I tried to prise the lugs away using a flat screwdriver). I thought, I, know I'll try the good one on the other side but the bolt is the same - it just turns and turns bothways but doesnt't free the light mounting.
Half an hour later - I'm still unable to free it.
Can someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong or missed the obvious!

Thanks, Peter A
