How do you change the headlight bulb on a 1997 Acura CL 3.0 liter?

You first need to remove the black plastic covering by unscrewing the big plastic bolts. They just unscrew so don't try to remove. Look down where your headlights are and there should be plastic clips (mine are blue and white) you need to push on the lever on the bottom of the plastic clip at the same time as you are pushing down. ( I cheat and use tools for additional muscles, a flat screwdriver works best) It should come off disconnecting the power from your headlights. There should be 3 spots where lights can go, hi-beams, headlights, and turn signals....determine which one needs replacing. Turn the back of the light clockways and it should pop out carefully. Replace and turn counterclock ways until light is locked back into place. Replace clips and black plastic cover.
