How to remove Headlight Assemblies?

I tried once and.. Perhaps I am an idiot. Can anyone walk me through how to remove the headlight assemblies? Fairly thorough?

You will have to remove the Grille, the side marker lens first, then there's screws around the upper lip of the bumper that mets the headlight and grill you have to remove that, then you'll see two screws on the side of the headlight where you removed your side marker lens and the two screws on the inner side behind the grill. then you have to tilt it out to remove the headlight assembly.
