Pay close attention to the plastic lugs that are part of the bumper assembly (NOT the black plastic push in things). If you have removed the three under bonnet M10 nuts/torx in the wheel arches and the trim at the top with the black push in clips and it still won't release at the top, inspect the two or more areas at the top. You will have to insert a screwdriver to release them. If you just tug at it you WILL break them off. If this happens, you can put it back, but it won't be 'proper'. Beware the fog light connector (near side) that can only be unplugged with the bumper half off (get an assistant to help).

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

They should fit straight on if they are the correct ones for your car, and should come with all the bits required . you'll need to remove the front bumper though to get the head lights out.
