The lens unscrews from the assembly. The bulbs will then be visible and accessible.

Sorry you mentioned asking how to get to the bulbs thus the answer.

You are trying to remove the assembly from the bumper on an 80 with OE tubular bumpers?

The above pic is from the Fiat repair manual, it’s unclear if the mounting screws screws are inside the housing under the lens and then into the mount or if they are mounted from the back as the secondary screws shown on the back may be the mounting screws.

My Coupe is different in all regards from the Spider on these parts.

If you're asking about the front side-marker light (on the fender), you can change the bulb in it by reaching up into the fenderwell, grabbing the center socket assembly & twisting it counter-clockwise, then pulling the socket assembly out of the reflector unit. You can now change the bulb.

It's often easiest to remove the front wheel for easier access & viewing. ;)
