Headlight HELP!

I am buying new headlamp housing and streetglow bulbs. I can't figure out how to remove the factory headlights? Does anyone know how, bc their tough to get too?

there will be a couple like metal tabs behind the headlight housing pull those tab things off and then you can pull out the headlight
