You should have two long star-patterned screws that run through the brackets of it......unscrew thoss and the headlight assembly should pop out and then you can change the bulb or the headlight assembly at that time.

Hello, You remove the headlamp assembly by removing the 3 bolts that hold it in place. The bolts are #1 in the following picture:

There are two bolts that need to be removed. You can identify them by the washer sitting underneath them. Remove the plug going into the lamp. Then, pull out (it will probably have to be forceful) the entire casing. You will see a large black ring. Remove this and then you should be able to pull out the light plug. Insert the new bulb and just put everything back together.

Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.
1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.
