Default Changing my headlights.. 99 ranger

So i feel pretty dumb for not figuring this out but i cant seem to get either headlight out. I can barely fit my hand in there. The manual says to unclip the wire first then twist the retaining ring well i can get the wires to unplug from the bulb.. And i dont want to yank on the headlight wires unless thats what your suppose to do..

You have to get the retainer clip off first and its a PITA. After that is off the head light will come out easily.

dont yank wires, never yank wires. Retainer clips. they are black and behind the light housing. pull straight up then pull the light out from the front.

Are you talking about the black ring that you twist? Cause i have the older headlight design that does have the tabs you pull up on

the clip that holds your wiring harness to the bulb is under the black ring you may have to take the black ring loose and pull the bulb out and then disconnect it. and to put the new bulbs in you'll have to put the bulb in the housing and then put the black ring on then plug them up... or atleast that's the way i have to do mine... it's a real PITA when you have big hands....
