You don't remove the three metal tabs, there should be a small wire holding the bulb in that looks like a hook. One end is bolted to the housing but on the other side there is a latch to release the wire. After that wire is free twist the bulb and it will come out. The description under the third pic talks about it and you can barley see the wire in the picture held by a screw in the middle.
