Answer

Turn the front wheels all the way to the right to replace the left light. There is a cover at the front of the wheel well. Remove the cover, there is a "cap" that is basically the back of the headlight. Unscrew the cap... you are at the back of the bulb. It is held in place by a metal retaining clip. Remove the retaining clip, unplug the bulb, replace the bulb, replace the retaining clip, screw the cap back on and replace the wheel well cover. The high beam lamp is replaced by opening the hexagonal cover on the top of the headlight module after the hood is raised and snaking your hand inside to twist it out and then twisting a new one in. Small hands are better!
