There's a clip that holds it in place.

It's been a while since I did an Omega's .... but i think you squeeze them together so that each side clears a small hook on the back of the headlight. Most cars are a variation on that theme.
As you have a facelift, the headlights come out pretty easily ...... you'll be able to see what you're doing then. Or borrow a make-up mirror from SWMBO and have a look with that ;-)

Maybe you have already sorted it out, and I dont know are there any differences on year models..

But on mine -03 with xenons the hi-beam H7 just needs to be lifted upwards from base after connector is detached. New bulb then just needs to be pushed back in.
