540 factory Headlight help

I am replacing the headlight assembly for a 98 540i. Are there any tricks... I am having trouble taking them out.
There are two bolts on top I have removed, and based on the bottom of the new one, there are no other fasteners... but it isn't budging.
Also the body trim strip needs to come out...
Any pics/.pdf would be a help.
