You have to pull the headlight assembly out. There is a lever on the inside of the car around the assembly that you lift (rotate) to unlock the assembly. If there's a lot of road dirt up there it can stick. Then you can pull the headlight out. Be carefull, on one side there's an additional "lock" that you have to press to release the lever. I found out the hard way when I snapped the lever off. After changing the bulb, there are two, one high and one low beam, installation is the reverse.
