This is not a fun task, especially if it is the driver side ( you have to remove plastic cover in front of battery).

To change headlamp: 1. remove round cover under hood(2.5 in diameter) 2. there is a little wire that crosses over the bulb. To remove, use finger and press at 1:00 position (toward front of car) and lift upward. the wire is hinged at the 3:00 position. 3. pull the bulb straight out. 4. unplug bulb from socket.

putting it back is a little tricky. make sure you dont touch then new bulb with your hands.

1. plug bulb into wire socket 2. re-insert back into headlamp housing hole. Make sure spring wire is out of the way of the hole. Make sure the flat bottom of the bulb housing is facing down. 3. look from the front to make sure bulb is flush. 4. make sure wires are out of the way of the back of the bulb. 5. while holding the bulb flush with one finger, swing the wire over the back of the bulb, raise up a little, then push in and down. This will hurt the hell out of your fnger, because you can only do this with one finger. It should lock in place. 6. If you are having trouble getting the wire to latch back in, it might be bent (flatten out). If it does get bent, bend it back a little. it should have a slight arc to it. I have done this so many times. It really is a piss poor design.
