Remove 1 retaining bolt and pry out gently on entire headlight assembly. This will let you access your bulbs. Once you've removed the retaining bolt, you probably can't pry out the headlight assembly with your hands. There are two "retaining clips" for lack of the proper description that hold the assembly firmly in place. You need to "pop" these clips free. One clip is on the far outside edge of the lamp, and the other is closer to the engine, about 3/4's of the length of the assembly in from the outer edge. You can use a screwdriver to gently pry the headlight assembly out. User note: I wrestled with the process above for about two hours, removing the one bolt and trying to remove the headlight assembly by wiggling it by hand. I couldn't get it out. I thought for sure that there must be another bolt or screw holding the assembly in, but I couldn't find it. So, after much hesitation, I took the description on faith and used a screwdriver to create some leverage. The assembly popped right out and I was able to easily change the bulb.
