How do I change the passenger side headlight on a smartcar?

I’ve looked in the manual and it tells you how to change the every other light except the front ones.

The headlights are quite hard to reach and there seems to be some sort of clip holding the bulb in that I can’t remove. As I’ve already bought the bulb I’d rather not take it to be done at the garage

I know nothing about smartcar's but was curious and found this. It's actually instructions on upgrading the headlights but looks like the same process for just changing a bulb. Hard to believe just switching out a bulb would be so complicated.

Damn, I was afraid I'd have to take the whole front off. Looks like it’ll have to go to the garage after all.

Be careful, I changed the headlight in my old Explorer and
ended up fusing the light housing to the car frame. Plastic
housings to hold the light in place melted, too and now it's even more difficult to replace the headlight.
My advice: have the garage do it.
