Lift the hood and look on the top of outside part of the plastic headlight assembly. Take out the hex head screw with a 10 mm socket. The fake plastic light assemby outside of the headlight will now come off. Take out the hex head screw behind this assembly and the two hex head nuts connecting the the upper side of the headlight assembly to the body. The whole headlight assembly will now come out. Unplug the sockets. You will need a small torx screwdrive to remove the screws holding the lamp assembly. Twist the socket and it will come out. Give your local autoparts store $10 for a new bulb and socket.
