having trouble taking out headlight

when u are going at the last pain in the ass bolt, i am having trouble getting it off. Does it come completely off? i got the grey screw thing off but the black screw has no grooves on the ffront and i cannot get it off. any tips and ideas? thanks.

also could u just saw the great arm that went down to the bolt since u are not putting that bolt back on and the arm wouldnt be doing anything????

Crap, I can't tell just by looking at it!!! I know you had to use some brute force though to get it out. I think it was held in by a clip. Just give it a good yank!!!
