I have read that twisting counter clockwise will remove electrical and a simple twist on bulb will remove the bulb. I can't twist the electrical connetor.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 10 months ago.

that's is correct but sometimes they be stuck ,You have to be careful not breaking the tabs inside the headlight assembly , you can try with a long needle nose plier and put a towel around it ,so u want damage it
