    The circular ones? They are covering up 2 little sponges for condensation purposes. I would pull them off, I did. Try pulling them side to side untill they become loose.

    Yes. I removed all bulbs, the little screws, the rubber gasket around the main light, and the plastic cover on one of the adjustment screws. I left the adjustment screws, the little metal bracket in the main headlight hole, and these 2 mysterious rubber things...
