Put one hand on the back and push the headlight out.
That worked. There are two horizontal clips on the lower part of the headlight that holds it in place. They were very tight so I took a file and removed just a little material from them.
Then it was much easier to pull them of the clips.

I pushed on the back of the light and it came out just like butter. Those clips held on like a death grip. You have to really push with considerable effort to get the head light assembly off. Initially I was sweating bullets because I had visions of cracking a clip or something and paying huge whacks of cash to fix the whole thing instead of replacing a simple bulb. Push! It pops out, then it is all wavy gravy from there.
By the way, make sure you get the correct bulb. I went to a certain store that rhymes with Vanadian Mire and the parts dude told me "this is the bulb I need". What I removed vs. what they gave me sure did not look the same
Took everything back, van still in pieces, went to the dealer and got the right bulb for way less.
