High beam bulb

Ok I'm a dummy. I am trying to change the bulb. I have the brass colored clip loose. Now, what is the secret to getting the bulb out?

Re: High beam bulb

For the '99 model:

Disconnect plug (1).
Bend back the ground clip (2) of the bulb for
high-beam headlight and remove the bulb
Use a screwdriver to press in the retaining lugs
on left and right and disassemble the bulb
Remove the H3 bulb from its ring.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Hope this helps.
