Removing 2003 headlight rubber cover

I'm trying to change a headlight in my 2003 Tacoma 2wd. I have the connector unplugged but can't pull off the rubber cover. The rubber cover has a tab that says "pull" which I've done - pulled straight back and also up first and then straight back but it hasn't budged. My guess is that I just need to pull harder straight back but I thought I'd ask in the forum first for advice. Thanks.

Yeah pull harder. It might be stuck from years of heat and dust but it fibres right off
