First, check the fuse.
I think there are several threads about getting to the back of the headlight on the forum.

Talking Re: Help lowbeam out

If you are speaking about the spring wire clip that holds the back of the bulb base, then just that part comes out, thus exposing the bulb for re-placement. DON'T touch the new bulb with your fingers as it will drastically shorten the life of the new bulb. Stick the base and bulb back in and flip the spring clip back in place.

Hope that helps a bit!

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

After the hold down wire is removed the seal of the cover has probably stuck the cover on the housing. If you can't pull it off with a lot of effort, try to pry it off with a common screwdriver at the seam. It will pop off eventually.

Re: Help lowbeam out

once the wire clip is off the plastic cover just pops off, give it a rap with a small hammer or use a pry.
