Best Answer

When you have the hood open, looking at the headlight housing, there are two bolts at the top of the housing that need to be removed. You may have to remove the black plastic cover to access both of them.

When the bolts are removed, lift from the top and it should pull out. You will need to turn the bulb retaining ring to free the bulb from the housing.....reverse the instructions to put it all back together.
