Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.
btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.
Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.
If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.
If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

1) Remove battery box top
2) Unclip the 1/2" hose above light housing and push out of way, clip is sharp!
3) With a 10mm socket, remove one bolt that secures engine compartment fuse box, When the bolt is removed, slide the fuse box backwards toward firewall until front clips are clear of slots, gently lift and push up and aside to middle of compartment. These steps will help give you some elbow room

do you know what H type of bulbs you have?
some are just a twist other have a clip that needs to be pressed and let fold down to allow bulb removal.
in the engine comartment behind where the headlight are there are either rubber boots or clips that need to be removed to expose the back on the buld.
remove the retaining clip as mentioned above or gently twist he bulb to remove it. now remove the old bulb from its holding wire.
when inserting the new bulb do not touch the glass as oil from the skin and disrupt its performance.
reverse the removal process and do the same on the other side.
NOTE: the new bulbs elements are in a slightly different postion in the bulb than the old ones (no two bulbs are exactly alike) for best visibilty have you headlight realligned after bulb replacement.
