replacing headlights in YJ

hey guys, just curious if anyone knows how to replace a headlight. I took the headlight bezel off and took the whole headlight housing out. However I cant seem to open up the housing to get to the bulb. Any suggestions would be nice

Also, I'm trying to change my bulbs to a more brighter preferably blueish toned color. If you know of any good bulbs let me know. Thanks

Ummmm ya can't do that on a YJ, they are sealed beam. Now, you can buy new housings that will use a 9007 or 9004 bulb.

Blue tints are for appearance if that's what you like. You won't see any better or further.
