    so I got both of my headlights opened in about 2 hours. But now I can't get the reflector bowl separated from the back housing. I removed the headlight motor, which seems to be 1 of 3 mount points. How do I remove the remaining two mount points? Hopefully the pics below provide a reference for those that have completed their retrofit.

    It can be separated but I don't see the need. I kept mine attached for fear of reattaching it completely out of whack. If you loose track of your stock reflector bowl's height adjustment, you could risk your bezel touching/scratching the inside of your lens. If that happens your adjustability will be limited and you could ruin the inside of your lens and scratch your freshly painted bezel.

    I also left my level motor in. Couldn't find a reason to remove it.

    Thanks @MotoTundra, that's what I needed to know.

    Easiest way is go ahead and remove the bowls if you have to do any trimming to fit the projector.

    The two other mounts are just a snap in plastic fastener into the bowl. They might be hard to reach to push the tabs out of the way to remove the bowl from them. What I did is unscrew the fastener itself from the housing. One is easy. The other is hard to get a wrench on. I ended up trimming some of the housing away to get to it.
