the bottom screw on the healdight rim releases it from the wing- the other two screws are for adjusting it. make sure you have the new headlight on with the proper adjustment done or your light will be pointing in the wrong place. unscrew the headlight, make note of where the wires go, unplug them and plug in the new one. hook the top of the headlight rim over the little lip in the wing and screw it on again. hope this helps.
