Hmmm Facelift 147 (2005) dipped beam replacement

I know there are a few other threads on replacing the bulbs in a 147, however I am hoping that someone may have had luck in replacing these in a facelift model and would care to share. It seems that all other how-to's are for pre-facelift.
It certainly appears that AR changed the mechanism as, the well explained picture in another thread looks nothing like the what the little I can see with a mirror and also does not look like the picture in the manual.
My experience so far is; I can see and feel a small tab at the top of wire mechanism and I can feel it 'give' when I pull it towards the front of the car. However, it does not seem to want to move either right or left.
Any advice, would be appreciated.
Should we get this figured out, I'll do my best to post instructions, hopefully with drawing.

Re: Facelift 147 (2005) dipped beam replacement

You are right there is a wire tab at the top. But it needs to be pushed really hard to let go. The first time I did it I managed to dislodge the whole wire mechanism and it took me about 2 hours to get it back in. It was a real pain in the a...
If I remember correctly you need to push the wire tab to the right...
Once you know the trick you can do it in 2 minutes.
