Hopefully someone will come along with some info. I looked under and around my 88 and I couldn't figure anything at first glance.

The bulbs are removed from the back side of the unit. Easy to do.
Can't say for sure but I believe the light assemble is attached to the alum "bumper" under the nose. It appears two screws hold it in place. Couple good pics on ebay if you do a quick search.

And yes when you look at the opening in the nose for the parking lights things just don't align as they should. And I would think if you want to primer the nose masking off the parking lights is a PITA.

Owning the car for 30 years never had to replace either light assemble, bulbs yes.

Also there is nothing in the Helm Service Manual regarding the front body parts in a Monte. Interesting. Not even the headlight bucket, air dam, spoilers, fenders, rad support.

Looked at the 86 this morning.

If you look in the nose cutout for the front turn signal there are two notches, 1/2 circle, at the top of the nose opening. Two screws cans be accessed threw those notches. Under the car viewing the assemble there is also a screw on the bottom that presumably needs to be removed and the unit should slide out of the alum bumper from the rear..
