Easy...but a bit of work. The front bumper will have to be removed in order to remove the headlight(s).

To remove the bumper you will only need a ratchet, small extension and a 10mm socket and a Phillips screwdriver.

First remove all the bolts from underneath there are approximately 10 of them. Next, remove one bolt from each side just inside the front of the inner fender well. If you pull back the front of the inner fender plastics you will see the bolt. Dsiconnect the two side maker light connects by rotating then pulling straight out. Now reomve the top bolts there are about 6 of them, you will need to remove the plastic engine covers first. Aslo in the center of the bumper top remove the plastic pin with the Phillips. Lift striaght up and pull forward and the bumper will come right off.

Removing the headlight(s)

First disconnect the four lamp plugs at the rear of the headlight(s). With the 10 mm socket remove the front and rear bolts on the front and rear of the headlight(s)they are on top. One more bolt to go. It is located on the fender side of the headlight(s)just in front of the fender. It is normally maked with a stripe of blue paint on the bolt head.

Once all the bolts are out gently shake the headlight(s)a bit and remove it by lifting up from the rear of the headlight(s), then up.

That's is it. To reintall just reverse the above procedure

[Edit] I don't think it is that much work...

How-To replace the Headlights (Low Beams)

from page 210 of the owners manual:

1) Remove the clips from your engine plastics.

Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to push down on the circle in the center of the plastic clips, this will unlock them. Then use a flat-head screwdriver (or your finger nail) to pop out the clip. To reinstall the clips, push the peg back up and insert the clip, then push the peg down. It makes sense when you try it, or just look in the owners manual.

2) Remove the engine plastics - in doing so, also remove the windshield-washer hose from the notch on the cover.

3) Unplug the headlight electric connector (if the connector is tight, wiggle it).

4) Remove the rubber cover.

5) Release the bulb retaining spring and remove the bulb along with the socket.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a Toyota Corolla?

Best answer I've found, in my search for the same answer is that you have to remove the headlight assembly to get access to the bulb (thanks Toyota, for making this easy! I didn't expect it to be harder to do this simple task on a Toyota than of my Dodge Caravan for God's sake!) You have to remove the headlight assembly mounting screws and remove the headlight assembly. Remove the power cable by squeezing the lock clip to release the cable, then release the bulb from the headlight assembly. Reverse process for the new bulb. I've only read how to do this - not done it on my own yet, so I expect to learn (and be frustrated) in my own replacement efforts later today. Hope this helps.
