After you open the hood the whole headlight assembly can be removed by taking off the the two black plastic wing nuts on top holding the headlight assembly in. There is also another wing nut like bolt that is between the headlight assembly and turn signal assembly that must be removed. One you do this you have to lift up on the headlight assembly to clear the threaded studs that the plastic wing nuts were on and pull both headlight and turn signal light assemblies straight out. They both have to come out together. There are some clips that still hold all of this in, but it will come out when you pull it straight forward. I have done this several times and it seems kind of tricky the first time, but actually is pretty easy.
