Removing Headlights? And wiring question (projector headlights)

My new projector headlights came yesterday, and im wondering what you have to do to get the old headlights off. I looked at them today, but im not sure exactly how to get them to come out.

Also, for someone that has or has had these headlights, how do you wire them up? It came with a bunch of wiring, but no instructions at all......im assuming it must be pretty easy, but I haven't had a chance to look at the wiring. Here is the headlights and the wiring that came with it.

If yours is the same as mine, there should be two metal clips keeping the adjusters from falling out of the headlight housing. There is a third mounting point that has the little squeeze tabs on them that you have to press together to pop it out. The clips aren't too hard to get off, but that last one can be a PITA to get off cuz it's so far down it's tough to get your hand in there.

Sorry, can't help with the wiring. I got the regular diamond clear headlights.

I made a small attempt to remove the clips, and then went to autozone and got some pliers that had a 90 degree bend on the ends.....grinded them alittle so they would fit better in the holes, and the clips came right out.

well.......I thought the factory ones would work for a while, but after putting the headlight next to the corner lights, I noticed it doesn't even match that clear corner part, color wise...........so im getting some off ebay real soon.
