Default How do you remove front headlight in a'08 astra xe? Need to reseal lamp

Of course before I purchased my car an idiot replaced the front passenger side headlight and didn't seal it so it's full of condensation. Without having to read through the 1300+ page manual I downloaded for it and figured I'd ask here. Suggestions?

First remove the front grille, three screws on top and bottom tabs that pull up and out. There is a hex head screw on the top corner, remove it. Look for other fasteners. You must also disconnect the bulbs. On the inside fender well in front there is an access cover. Remove it and the bulb sockets behind it. I never removed mine but looking at it from the outside it should be rather simple as newer cars go. Good luck.
