HELP! H7 bulb replacement

Ok, so I've searched high and low on how to do this and can't for the life of me figure it out.

I have an '06 330i with xenons.

I can see the H7 bulb on the left hand side, but there's absolutely no way I can reach it with my fingers.

I can grab the metal ends with pliers but the bulb won't come out.

It obviously doesn't just slide out. Do I need to twist it or something? I'm beginning to think my only other alternative is to remove the bumber to extract the entire headlight housing! This is so frustrating.

Actually if you turn your wheels in their respective ways you will be able to notice an access panel on each wheel well. Once you pop out the access panel you will be able to reach to light bulb that way. Good luck!

From what I remember on my mazdas you need to clip the ends with your fingers ( or plyers ) and twist.. should come right now.. really not that difficult.
