On the right side of the assembly there is a slot, insert an appropriate sized screwdriver and push towards the left (drivers side) with a little torque towards the ground. It should pop right out. DO NOT TWIST the screwdriver or pry against the car body.
Replace bulb and push back in, left-side tab first.
