Alright, I changed it myself, but I'm no expert. First you need to remove all the screws that hold the black plastic shroud over the headlight. (Headlight Needs to be Up). Then there is two bolts that hold the metal casing to the light. You need to loosen the two bolts, which will pop the light out. Disconnect the cable and you will have the light along with a retainer case (silver metal). Loosen all the screws and remove the piece which should allow you to take the light out. Good Luck! Here is my method for doing this jog that makes it quicker and easier. Removing the headlamp adjustment bolts means the unit will need to be re-aimed once you re-assemble it. Instead, do the following: - First, raise the headlights in the 'off condition'. This requires the headlamp switch in the car be turned to 'On' (which raises the lamps) and then pushed in and rotated one more 'click' past the 'On' setting (which turns off the lamps but leaves them in the up position.) - Next, remove the black plastic shroud around the headlight unit. There is one screw and one 'snap' connector on each side of each lamp. Just remove the screws, then flex the shroud outwards to 'pop' it loose. - Next, free the lamp retainer ring. Working from the front of the handlamp unit, remove the two small screws that secure the chrome retainer ring at the top. Then carefully bend the ring down enough to allow the lamp to be pulled out from it's bracket. This should allow enough clearance to reach behind the lamp and grab the electrical connector. - Remove the connector from lamp. It may be hard to free, just keep wiggling it a bit and it will come free (there are three prongs together, so the friction fit is tight.) Just look at the replacement lamp to see what's happening. - Replace the lamp. Wriggle the lamp completely free of the headlamp unit, pulling past the retaining ring. Then wriggle the new lamp back in, making sure the prongs are oriented the same as the connector. Again, reach in behind the lamp and push the connector on. If you have some dielectric connector 'grease' (special lube for electrical connectors only), you can apply that to the lamp prongs to make removal easier next time (and there will be a next time!) Once reconnected, then reseat the lamp and re-attach the retainer ring, making sure the lamp is properly seated. - Reattach the headlamp shroud. - Extras you can do when doing this job: 1) Thoroughly clean the shroud and apply ArmourAll (or similar rubber protectant) 2) Clean and apply ArmourAll (or similar rubber protectant) to the little sealing strip at the front of the headlamp opening while the shroud is off. Alternatively, you may need to replace the strip if its metal bracket is rusted (as it tends to do.) 3) As mentioned, apply dielectric grease to the lamp prongs to make the connector easier to remove. 4) Apply rubber protectant to the rubber 'stops' at the back of the headlamp unit (hood must be up.) 5) Apply your favorite lightweight lube to the screws, springs and hinge points. A specific grease may be recommended by the manufacturer for the hinges and the motor arms, but I don't have that info right now. 6) Last but not least, pull the car nose-on to a wall (allow about 6' or so distance) that will give you a good view of the headlamps when lit. Check to make sure there is no obvious mis-alignment of the beams in both high and low beam. Prior lamp changes may have left the lamps out of whack and you may need to either align yourself (requires a special, but relatively cheap, tool) or take it to a shop.
