Default Removing Headlight (2008 Dodge Ram)

I'm needing help on removing my headlight.

I already removed the first (2) 10mm right when you open the hood

Here are my (2) questions?

1.) How do I remove the clip?

2.) how am I suppose to get to the last 10mm down by the wheel?

I've already seen that I know where everything is I'm just need someone to explain to me how to do it.

I just wondering if someone who has taken thier headlights out before has any tips for the clip and the last bolt. Because I'm havin a hell of a time getting either one of them off.

I have a 2007 and to get at the bolt by the tire you have to remove the plug and use a 4 inch extension

Well the last bolt there is a rubber inlet under the fender well that you can pull out and use an extension on and as for the clip you just cover your bumper with a towel and pull the headlight and it pops right out.

The one in the wheelwell takes a 10mm socket on a 4" extension.

The two front ones are just torx head units, #27 I think.

Then I just used a small flat bladed screwdriver with a towel to lever out the headlight assy at the back side nearest the yellow reflector.

Here's a thread that may help:
