the bumper is one piece. The headlights themselves stay on the car.

U will need to undo a few bolts up the top, one bolt each to undo the indicators, then pull them out (will need a little force), then you will find another bolt there as well.
Also there will be underneath, and a few in the wheel arches.

If you have a look in the technical documents there's a picture with the locations of the bolts shown.
