Question about 2005 Honda CR-V
If it's the clip that holds the wires plug onto the bulb, don't worry about it. It will stay on anyway. Just when you replace that bulb, be real sure you wipe the bulb really well of any oils from your fingers that may be on it. I you don't the bulb won't last very long.

there should be a small screw that is preventing the metal anchor from sliding free of the assrmbly. It will most likely be a phillips or allen wrench or t drive.

You have to remove the front bumper and grill etc
There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.
Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.

Yup after removing the 2 screws, there is a round plastic tap.
you need to pop the light housing back and outward with a flat screwdriver. wrapped electrical tape on the flat end to avoid scratching the paint.

Respectfully submit you guys are making a mountain out of a molehill. I just did this. Don't disconnect anything. Just pull the reservoir up out of the way. You don't have much visibility, but you don't need to pull any tubes or spill any fluid. Somebody holding a flashlight helps a lot! It's a ten minute job. Alternatively, buy your headlight at a Honda dealer and they'll put it in for you.

1) Open Hood
2) Behind headlight ***'y, there is a large, round rubber gasket surrounding the light bulb. The bulb extends thru the gasket with a connector pressed onto its terminals. Carefully pry off the connector with a thin blade screwdriver, or simply rock it left and right while pulling toward firewall. NOTE: If it is the driver side, the battery will be somewhat in the way. I recommend removing its clamp (straddling bracket held by two rods and two 10mm nuts). Put the nuts and rods aside, then lift and slide the battery toward the engine as far as it will go. For additional lamp installation room, prop a ~ one inch object under the right side of the battery (a screwdriver handle will work).
3) Pull the tab at the bottom of this gasket until it starts to come loose from the headlight assembly. Remove it and put it aside.
4) Note how the bulb is installed. Then remove it by unhooking the non pivoting side of the clamp, then swing it away from the bulb.
5) Remove and replace the bulb (large tab up, and middle electrical terminal up).
6) Re-hook the wire clamp.
7) Reinstall the rubber gasket, with word 'top' at the top.
8) Press on the electrical socket. Note that all three wires are secure and not abraided.
9) To test, turn ignition key to 'on', then the lightswitch 'on'. Check both high and low beams for alignment (approx. same hight beam). If one is off significantly, make sure bulb is inserted in its cavity properly.
10) If the driver side, put the battery back in place and secure its clamp.
I changed the driver side head light/day lamp on my 2007 aveo sedan. I only had two tools, my needle nose pliers and my eyeglasses screwdriver.
1) do not mess with the battery...instead there should be three bolts two on top and one by the grill that are really easy to remove.
2) this does take a little bit of work, pull the headlight from the car and disconnect the side power cord, there is a tab at the bottom just press and it should come right off.
3) pull back the rubber gasket, this should reveal the internal wire clap that holds the light bulb in place.
4) release the wire clamp, it should just pop off when you press it in and it probably would be easier to press in both sides and once. (I only did one side and had to fight with the lamp to let loose)
5) now that the lamp is out of the headlight, put the headlight off to the side and work off the plug off the back, and pull off the rubber gasket once the lamp is free of the plug.
6) place the new light bulb with the middle tab facing up into the headlight, and secure the wire clamps. (this took less than a minute, just follow the position of the tabs)
7) put the rubber gasket on to the head lamp and make sure top is facing up, then replace all the plugs and wiring back onto the headlamp.
8) ok this is a little tricky, work the headlight back into the car body and makesure all of the bolt holes line up.
9) test the lights, they should now work.
10) replace and tighten the bolts.
Just a note as well, when I purchased this car new, i received the book, but it got lost in one of my moves, pulling out the headlight assembly is a bit of a pain as it putting it back in, but there should not be a need to remove the wire clamp it does come off pretty easily once exposed. Oh and thanks for putting up this answer.

Prop open your hood and locate the release lever for the headlight assembly, the lever is approximately 2 inches under the two upper mounting bolts that hold the fender in place.
