Default Headlight removal

I need to replace the drivers side headlight assy on my 05 SLK350.

I have the manual, and it starts off with "remove the bumper", which seems a bit extreme to me.

What steps do I actually need to go through to swap the assy? (I think there is a DIY thread laying around somewhere on this, but I can't find it...)

BTW, Pictures would be great... I really like the whole picture thing...
