Removing square downlight

I am trying to remove my downlight to change them to leds but mine doesn't seem to use the conventional spring clips. Hope someone can guide me on how to remove the light fixtures.

I am only able to navigate the metal piece on the left, but the 2 metal piece on the right is preventing me from pulling out the light unit.

Thanks in advance

The spring bracket on the left will release from the slot and pull into the box. It's probably the top slot that you need to fuss with. Usually you pull down on the tab and then pull in. Once that strip is out of the way you should be able to tilt the housing down and pull it out.
