There's either a philips screw there if you have OEM Xenon or a clip that holds the indicator on the headlight housing if you have halogens.

^ Yup, either a screw you loosen to take the corner out or you have to push down and slide it out.

Remember, don't screw it out completely, just enough for the corner to be loose and slide out.

Push down and try to move the flathead back to towards the car so the corner gets pried out.

Thanks, I was pushing on the side guide tabs! I had to go in deeper and couldn't see it. I coulda sworn that this was different on my non xenon car. Oh well thanks guys
