FIRST REMOVE THE GRILL ASY-REMOVE THE TURN SIGNAL,SIDE MARKER ASY BY REMOVING THE TWO MOUNTING SCREWS AND PULLING TO THE FRONT-REMOVE BULBS-NOW YOU CAN REMOVE THE HEADLIGHTS BY PUSHING THEIR HOLDING TABS TOGETHER WIT A 11MM SOCKET AND PULLING THE ASY TO THE FRONT AND OUT. IT IS MOUNTED WITH THREE HOLDING BRACKETS STICKING THRU A 1/2 INCH HOLE. TWO ARE FAIRLY EASY TO DO BUT THE BOTTOM ONE WILL TAKE SOME PATIENCE. NOTICE WHERE THE UP/DOWN ADJUSTING BRACKET STICKS UP THRU THE LIGHT ASY FOR RE-ASSEMBLY

Hi, You have to remove the entire headlight assembly to get to the bulb, which is located in the back of the assembly. There are three wing nuts that hold the assembly in, and those will have to be removed. Then remove the side signal assembly first, then the headlight assembly. I have provided a link that shows exactly how this is done and where these wing nuts are. Good Luck

Open the hood, remove the two locks that hold the headlight assembly in place, with the two locks removed you can wiggle the headlight assembly out and gain access to the back side of the assembly to remove and replace the headlight bulb.

Look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a round sleeve where the wiring goes into the headlight. Twist this counterclockwise to turn the head light bulb assembly. Pull back on the assembly to remove it from the headlight casing. Replace with new headlight bulb.

Remove the headlight assembly above the faulty signal bulb. This will give you access to the signal bulb socket. To remove the headlight assembly, open the hood, stand in front of the headlight assembly, notice two black tabs sticking up behind the headlight assembly inside the radiator support. Pull up and wiggle the tabs to remove them, this will release the headlight assembly. You can now wiggle the headlight assembly out to gain access to the signal bulb socket for replacement.

You need to remove the grill and then the headlight assemblies. I had to remove the battery as well to get at the last bolt for the headlight assembly. There are about 6 bolts and 4 preasure clips holding the grill on.
