Check out Tom's How-To on how to change bulbs.
This will get the headlight out then you will see that there are 4 snap-fit tabs that need to be pryed and moved to separate the two halves of the headlight.

I've done this several times when I painted my inner headlamp surround.

There is also a pressure tab on the back of the light as well that has to be moved to the side (don't have to take the screw out, it can stay and move the tab to the side when sliding out.

I'll look on the old forums to see if I have any photos I can share, I know it has been discussed before.

how did you get the color into the headlight?? is that just a stock headlight ??
Stock headlight - follow that link I posted and there is a picture of me masking it off so I could paint the surround that isn't really reflecting any light. Never did a How-To on it, but there really isn't much to it besides taking it apart and masking then two coats of primer, 2 or 3 coats of color and 1 oe 2 coats of clear.
