Try searching some BMW forums and/or DIY sites. You can find some pretty detailed info out there.

btw...what kind of car is it for?

All that shit just pops off, you dont need to remove the headlight to remove the corners. The side markers slide off and the taillight are held on by 3 bolts per light. Ofcourse all this will require a bit of force and a bit of finess. Try searching e46fanatics.com for all these diy, I'm pretty sure that they are all on there.

It all pops off but likes to scatch paint, take some precautions and tape up the area your working the corner lights like to scratch the bumper when they pop off so put some tape and paper around the aera. The fender lights just push forward and will pop out.
