Default NEED HELP FOR 2000+ Head light assembly romoval (with a pic)

How the heck do you remove the head light assembly, I've removed both screws plus the head light bulbs low/high but can't remove the signals due to no space to get my hand into. The head light assembly seems to be clipped on in the corner of the signal light but I can't see anything to take off. How is this done?

but do the little clips holding this yellow plastic thing break when you yank on it? Or better yet does the yellow thing come out with the whole assembly? if so i'm going to cut the little clasps off it first before I go flying across the garage. (my brother and I are both trying to take these out and neither of us can get them out.)(i'm 25 and he'* 21 so we're not weak 16 year olds)

yes sometimes it helps to heat up the headlight with a hairdryer or the like
