There are only three 6mm screws holding the lamps in, two along the upper edge of the lamp and one on the side of the lamp assembly closest to the radiator. After that it's a solid push with your hand to get them to spring out, they are tight and seem to catch along the lower edge on the bumper trim so a bit of persistence is needed. Before changing the bulbs have you tried adjusting the lamps? From the factory they are set waaayyyyy low. Mine had a perfect pool of light about 20 feet in front of the car then nothing. Park nose in towards a wall headlights on low beam, on level ground of course and back about 15, 20 feet, and see where the 'cut line' is in relation to the car, you will see a definite horizontal cut off point above which there is very little light. The cut line measured up the wall should be about 2 - 3 inches below the small dimple moulded into the headlight cover in front of the low beam projector lens. Mine was about 18 inches below! After adjusting mine no more complaints about the lights, they are not search lights but quite good by modern car standards. The adjusters are visible looking straight down the rear of the headlight assembly, looks like a star wheel give it a go.
