Default changing a headlight bulb

I feel like an idiot for asking this, but I cant figure it out.

cannot reach the plug to pull out the bulb, see no way of pulling out the headlight to get at it, my owners manual leaves me even more clueless...

Grab the plug, turn it counter clockwise, pull out, replace headlight bulb by holding it with something other than your bare skin, put plug back in light housing, turn clockwise. Done.

the headlights can be pulled out by pull up on the two black tabs right behind the light. That is the mount bracket that clips them in
