'13 Xenon bulb replacement

Hi guys,
I'm trying to replace my yellowish xenon bulbs with a 8000k bulb, I did this on my 2011 with no issue, the bulb in that vehicle was held in place by two metal prongs that was easily removable, expecting it to be the same in my 2013 I tried to do it but there is no metal prong holding the bulb in place.
any idea how I can remove the bulb, and what kind of mechanism is used to keep the bulb in place ?

I don't have the answer to your question but rather a helpful tip. 8k bulbs will actually project less light at night than say 4k-6k. Standard xenon are 4300k so if you want something whiter id recommend staying around 6k
