There's a couple of bolts on the top and at least one in the rear that are removed. There might be a lower bolt or tabs holding it in place. Pull the headlight free and remove the bulbs. Don't touch the headlight bulb with bare hands.

FYI, your owner manual covers this process, with diagrams, under bulb replacement. Raise the hood and look at the top of the metal cross member that holds the radiator and fans and head light housings. Right next to the very front fender on both sides of the vehicle and at the top of the head light housings, you will see a small 7mm silver torx screw and right across from it and on top of the head light housing, you will see a second 7mm silver torx screw. These screws hold the head light housing to the metal cross member. Remove these two long screws and the head light assembly is easily pulled forward enough to allow removal of the sockets. Gently wiggle and angle assembly from fender (while pressing down on plastic bumper cover) until it releases and clears cover. The lamps have a locking tab on the plug assembly. Just press the plastic tab and turn the lamp socket counter clockwise to remove it from the lamp housing. Now, the lamp can be pulled from its socket holder. Don't touch the new lamp with your fingers or it will cause the lamp to turn dark and shorten its life. Assemble in the reverse order.
