Do you have a camera..??... not sure what your talking about.. take some pictures of what your speaking of and we might be able to help you more... if you have your figner tips on the bulbs.. they shoudl be able to come right out... its not that hard...

Oh and BTW.. what kind of car are you driving??

Take out the plastic strip. The light holders are inside. You can't pry off the lens covers. If you try you will break them.

I did this about a week ago.

Just unscrew the 4 screws and take the strip off, then the light covers are easily pried out of the way. (mine were stuck a little so they needed some gentle persuasion)

I'd replace the 4 screws while your at it cause mine where getting pretty rusted.
