With great difficulty. Raise the light, remove the black plastic trim piece, remove the headlight bezel then remove and unplug the headlight. The housing/motor assy is held in by four screws but the lower two are blocked by either the windshield washer or colling water reservoir bottle (depending on side). The difficult part is that the car is build like a Chinese puzzle and you might have to remove a bunch of other stuff off to get the coolant reservoir off (I haven't actually done the other side and I hope not to). Good luck

What would cause the headlight on a 1991 Mercury Capri to retract but not raise?

The headlights "retract" by gravity but lift via a lift motor. Failed headlight lift motors are probably one of the biggest problems on early 1990 versions of the Capri. If one headlight lifts fine but the other one won't, you'll need to replace the lift motor. Mercury did put a manual lift knob behind each headlight that can be turned by hand to lift the headlight into place in the event of a motor failure. You can use the lockout switch on the center console near the emergency brake to lock the headlights in the UP position once you get both of them up properly. This avoids having to open the hood and crank the knob every time you turn the lights on. Rebuilt lift motors are available online at many autoparts places that specialize in Capri - just Google "Capri headlight lift motor"
