How do you remove head lights?

A friend of mine is trying to take his head lights off and is having trouble. He can't figure out how to get the bottom clip off. I haven't had a chance to look at it so I'm just going by his description. Any help is appreciated.

I'm not sure what year headlights you want to remove, but I just did it on my 05. It's super easy taking less than 15 minutes to remove. Here's the post with my write up when I replaced my lights last month:

It's on an 03. It was dark when I looked at it, but all I could see was two clips on top and one on the bottom closest to the fender. I read tour write up.

I guess I should have asked if the ones from an 04 with a 6.0 fit on a 99-03 with the 7.3?

yes the lights from an 04 will fit the 7.3. for those headlights its easiest to take the parking lamp out first which is 2 screws on the bottom of each one. once those are out theres 2 little clips that you have to take out on top of the headlight. you will see them. and they will fight you. there a pain in the ***. after that there is one tab on the bottom on the inside the engine bay near the battery that is a spring clip basically. you would be best off pulling out bothe batteries to access each clip and then use a pair of pliers to release the clip.
