Inside the the front wheel well. Just below the top of the front tire. You will find a a removeable plastic panel. That is held in place by a few pastic clips. Remove this cover and remove the bulb from the head light. By twisting the plastic ring about 60degrees or so to the left. Just in case you are not aware of the fact. Never touch the bulb with your bare hands. The oil from your hands will cause the bulb to fail. If you recently used the headlights. Let them cool off for at least 1/2 hour or so before you atempt to change them. You can receive serious burns from the bulbs if you dont.

If you have the dual sealed beams like my Vanden Plas had, you have to unscrew the retainer screws from the front side and pull the bulb out the front. Pull the clip off the back and plug in new bulb, push bulb back in and retighten the retainer. If you have the square lights I would swap them out! I put the twin sealed beams from my Vanden Plas on my 90 Soveriegn after the Vanden Plas reached parts-car status. A little bit of work, but it looks so much classier!
