Swap a Headlight Bulb??

This is going to seem like kind of a stupid question, but I have these headlights:

Chevy Cobalt Pontiac G5 Pursuit LED Halo Projector Headlights Lamp Black | eBay

And my right h1 low bulb died. The headlight assembly came with the bulbs pre-installed and now that I'm looking at it, I can't for the life of my figure out how to swap the bulb out. There are two big round rubber covers over the wiring for both the high and low beam, but I peeled it off and it doesn't seem to expose a bulb. I apologize if this is incredibly obvious, but it looks to me like I'm going to have to remove the entire headlight assembly to get to the bulb, and that's no bueno :(

Take off the headlight and post a picture the back of the unit with the rubber insulators off. If i am correct there is a couple screws on the back that you have to take off in order to take out the bulb. My headlights are like that. It is a pain in the booty to replace the headlights in a lot of chinese aftermarket projectors headlights. At least that is my experience with them.
