New headlight... Am I missing something?

I have a burned out headlight and figured I could just remove the old one and find a replacement at an auto supply store. But I can't figure out how to access the headlight. Has anyone else done this? Should be easy,no? What am I missing?

Are there pull tabs behind the light housing to release the whole light assembly? It amazes me how they build vehicles that cannot have a light bulb changed with out taking the whole vehicle apart.

I fussed around and actually REMOVED the whole assembly (which I'm sure was unnecessary if I knew what I was doing). I just can't figure out how to open the darn thing to get at the bulbs. This is a 2013 FR3 by the way.

I will do so, but not until tomorrow, since I'm traveling on business today.

Take these comments for what its worth, but I seem to remember the bulbs are behind a rubber boot and I think one if not both are held in via small paper clips. You have to push them down to allow them to spring up. Then pull the bulb out and disconnect the wiring terminal. Ours model is 2015 30DS with the old style headlights.
