How do you change out the headlight. I've removed the dust cover, how do you unclip the light?

You have to pinch the two open ended wires of the clamp together. Basically place thumb and forefinger on the two wires, press down slightly while pinching together, then allow the clip to back out while maintaining the pinch. 

Boy, that doesn't sound like it makes any sense at all to me, but I can do it.   :beerchug:

Once you figure it out, practice by closing your eyes and having someone turn a garden hose on you while you do it, because you'll most often have to change the lamp at night in the driving rain.  Ask me how I know...... :(

Are you trying to replace the headlight or the bulb?
