How do I get at the headlight bulb to replace it on Piaggion…

Customer Question
How do I...

How do I get at the headlight bulb to replace it on Piaggion Fly?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

The High beam works, but not the low beam.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your motorcycle?

150 cc Fly; not sure of year.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your CC?

Dont know

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your bike yourself? What have you tried so far?

Looked at the headlight, and can't see how to open it, except underneath is a small gap with a flat projection sticking out, which seems unmovable.
