simple. you see a black round cover on the back of the headlight. unscrew it and pull it off. now the connector is VERY breakable (trust me i know!) so gently take it off. now is the hard part as its a tight fit and you cant see what you need the part you need to get to so feel with your hands around the bulb. you will feel a hinged hook that you can pull backwards (away from the front of the car). after you do that the bulb should slide right out. to install slide the new bulb in close the hook, reinstall the connector and put the cap back on! have fun!
