If it's like my 71 Beetle, you unscrew the bottom screw. Then lift the casing from the bottom. It's not an easy task but it does come off.

leave the adjusting screws where they are unless you want to re-adjust. the third screw is attached to the rim. undo till you don't see anymore progress then pull with some pliers! job done:eek:)

nearly! on a bus they're roated through 90∫ - so it'd be 'lift from the edge closest centre of the bus' ;)

all 3 need to come out, the 2 adjuster screws are really long so just keep turning!!!!
WHOAH THERE! first remove the larger of the 3 screws and prise the whole unit outwards - then when you got the unit safely on the floor you can start removing the other two*, BUT you'll probably find you can nudge the glass back enough to get the lids in without disrupting you lamp alignment.

*removing ALL the screws while the headlight is still attached to the car/van will result in lots of falling bits and smashed glass! :eek:
