Head light buckets 2011 Monaco

I have a 2011 Monaco, the head light adjusting screws are stripped and I have tried to remove the light buckets to repair them, but can't get them out. It seems the bucket is larger than the opening and the bracket that holds the adjusting screw won't come off. I've removed the 2 screws that hold the bracket to the head light housing and think there may be a third that you need to get at through the front but I can't figure how to get at it. I'm stumped, any thoughts or information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Russ

The bucket may need to come out from the back. Try sliding the generator out and then see if you can access the back of the headlight assembly. At least that is how mine appears to come out. Bob

Thanks for the reply Bob, I tried taking them out the back, not possible.
I called Monaco and a technician told me that I needed to cut pieces off the headlight buckets to get them out. The headlights are installed in the front end cap on a work bench where everything can be accessed easily, then the cap is mounted to the MH. I find cutting pieces off to repair something is unacceptable.

I totally agree...that falls under the "what were they thinking!!" category. I would hope that designer is no longer employed there. Bob
