Default How to detach high/low beam reflectors from headlight housing/leveler motor?

Hi guys

In my 05 STi, I need to get my low+high beam chrome reflector piece out from the JDM headlight housing.. i mean the halogen reflectors that are one piece.

I've already baked it and opened up the headlight, i have undone all the screws at the front... but the reflector remains still attached to the levelling motor and for the life of me i cant figure out how to detach it

i then took off the ballast from the base, and i see 2 more screws that i think attach the leveling motor to the reflector piece, but i really dont think i can get a screw driver to fit at that angle.

Any ideas or guides posted somewhere? I know someone out there knows, cos i've seen the reflectors for sale before. Thank you!!

p.s. went to all the hardware stores, and could not find a right-angel / offset screwdriver that would fit!
