Anyone know how this is done? In the haynes book it says to turn it to free the motor from the light them to pull it off, however, after turning it to free it i cant get the motor off at all. Do i just have to keep pulling or is there some trick to it?

Twist it to unlock it, then like ed says pull harder. They are quite tough to pull out.

after an hour tugging i set fire to the rear plastic of the headlight with my blowtorch. then when that didint work i hit it with a big hammer. messy and still took much fiddling to prise it from the wreck of molten plastic and shards of glass. got there in the end though
