Default Removing headlamp assembly

I can't really find anything on the search link. I have an 06 Jetta TDI, and I am going to replace both headlamps completely. Is there a link for this? I have read where the bumper has to be removed to get to the bottom screw of the headlamp. Other than that, I am going in blind. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Headlight assembly removal

Switch off electrics & remove key
unlock & detach headlight assembly electrical connector
remove front bumper cover>
remove front radiator grill
remove lower sound absorber(skid plate) under engine
remove upper & lower bumper cover mounting bolts
unscrew bolts from inside front fender
disconnect harness connector for outside air temp sensor(mounted behind lower left bumper cover grille) Disconnect harness connectors from behind bumper
With a helper, pull bumper cover parallel out of fender mounts
remove headlight mounting screws

Really need a Bentley to see picture of where all the screws are located.

Yes you have to remove bumper cover to access that bottom screw to headlight assembly.
