Inner Headlight Removal

Hey guys, I'm trying to do a halogen to xenon swap using my existing (pre-facelift) headlight housing.

I've removed all the trim around and inside the headlight housing and I am now stuck trying to get the inner-module (reflective part of the headlight) out. I see that it's attached with a ball/joint mechanism in several places. Does anyone know of an easy/safe way to remove the inner part of the headlights from the housing?

You have to move the two knobs for the level thingy all the way out and then pull the two level things lose and then theres another ball/joint mechanism inside the housing, in the middle of the two mirror housing. You have to somehow pull that out. Do it carefully, it's easy to break everything when i did it. Sorry about it being not that clear, kinda tired.
