You need to open the hood and there are three screws to remove to pull the light assembly out, then you can change the bulb from the back side of the light.

Sorry, must be from another year, there are no screws on my 2001 cougar's headlight covers, just clips that seem impossible to remove.

read the manual

If you truly have a 01, you will have three screws. Looking at the headlight unit from the front of the car, they are located at top right of headlamp, inside and down by the washer fluid refill tube. Just loosen,dont take out, makes it easier to put back. And last right next to where the Grille is located. It helps to remove the grille first because it partiall blocks the screw. Just use a screw driver in moving the grill release tabs. Pull the headlight assembly out, disconect the signal harness by pushing in on the tab, and then the other harness by pushing in on the small metal piece for the side marker, Pull the whole assembly out. Pull up on the clip and over to realease, and then the black door will swing open and out to expose the 9006 Low and 9005 High along with the DRL bulbs. Trust me, the screws are there because I have done some mods to my lights. The owners manual won't tell you to do what I have explained, but those clips are too hard to move without doing what I have said.
