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.

Why would the high beams on a 1994 Thunderbird work when the low beams do not?

Headlights have two filaments; one for low beams and one for high beams. There is a good chance that the low beams are burnt out. This doesn't necessarily mean that the high beams won't work. However, it's not too common for both low beams to burn out at the same time. Of course, it could be a fluke. I would replace the headlights with new ones and then go from there.
