Default cant switch out headlights and I need help

I have a pt cruiser 04 with a weird head light I guess ? The drivers headlight went out a couple of days ago but im not able to change the headlight like any other kind of bulb n was wondering if anyone could help. I also attached a picture of what this headlight bulb looks like since im on my phone.

What it looks like to me is that the owner before you changed the lights out to Halogen and I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be on that kind of angle. Bulb should be sticking out straight from the holder. Trace the two thick black wires back to where there should be some sort of connection, pull it apart and you'l be able to maybe match it up somehow to a new bulb.

That looks like someone converted the lights over to HID. you should be able to follow the wires back to the ballast. You probably would have to match the temperature to the other bulb.
