Default how do i take off the headlight housings?

I bought aftermarket headlights for my 1999 ford ranger. I successfully took off the corner/turn caseing off. Now I just have the headlight housing's themselves I need off. Can anyone tell me how to take them off? Iv been looking everywhere and can only find it for 2001+. Thanks everyone.

----------

My manual only tells me how to take off the corner/signal casing.

on the back side of your headlights there are 2 metal clips one towards the bottom and one on the top you have to get those out with snap ring pliers ant they'll come out

Okay I think I know what you are talking about, I was using a flat head to try to get one of the metal clips off. I messed that clip up bad, I can't re-use it. I don't think I need it anymore with the new headlights tho.

After I get them off what do I do?
