Question Taking apart 2004 OEM fog lights

I have 2 OEM foglights mounted on the front end of my jeep and after some rather rough offroading, the inside is full of dust and dirt. Is there anyway to take the glass of the actual fixture? Ive taken the plastic harness off and thats as far as ive been able to get. Any help is much appreciated!

I believe there are 3 or 4 torx head screws on the front of the housing that you can remove and take the glass out to clean and change out bulbs.

Also a good way to disconnect the lights.

From the 04 FSM:

CAUTION: Do not touch the bulb glass with fingers
or other oily surfaces. Reduced bulb life will result.
(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
(2) Remove the screws that attach the bezel reflector.
(3) Separate the bezel reflector assembly from the
lamp housing.
(4) Disconnect the electrical connector.
(5) Squeeze the bulb retainer together to disengage
it from the reflector
