Driver's side: Open engine compartment hood and you can look behind the headlight area to see a light blue plastic collar with fin-like structures around it. Twist the collar-it will only turn one direction- until it comes loose from its seat. Carefully pull the base of the lightbulb connecter toward the passenger compartment. Watch for the orientation of the connector as you remove it from the socket. This orientation will be helpful when re-connecting with new bulb since it is difficult to see it and reach it at the same time! Be careful not to touch the bulb with bare skin for it will cause premature burnout due to inner reflection and associated heat buldup. Replace the old bulb with new one using a handkerchief or paper towell to avoid finger printing. Replace connector unit with new bulb into socket at proper orientation and secure locking collar. NOTE: collar can fall loose, so handle it carefully or be ready to reach deeply to retrieve it! The collar will not fit over the bulb! It must be in place before seating the replacement bulb in the connecter.

Passenger side is the same, but I prefer to remove the air intake funnel first which merely snaps into place.

AddonVery nice write up, but I strongly suggest using latex or latex-free gloves, it adds extra grip to the bulb. Best type is the individually packaged.
