The headlight assembly contains all the light bulbs on one piece of plastic, but not the turn signal. In order to get to the assembly, you need to remove the battery. Also, there are 2 black plastic covers held on by 4 screws. Remove those screws (philips) and the covers. Behind the headlight assembly you will see a large black piece of plasic with two metal bands over it on each side. These are hard to get off but push them off of the pastic, they snap in place so it can be hard and noisy when they unlatch. This will let you take off the backing of the main headlight. Right beside that backing is a long, rectangular backing that has a plastic snap at the top. You may need a screwdriver or a chisel to pry this latch off, but push down on the plastic latch and pull the backing off. The top of this housing has the turn signal. Pull the entire turn signal housing with the wires just an inch or so. Use a set of pliers to unplug the wiring from the bulb housing. Once that's done, pull the bulb housing out, undo the small metal latches on the side of the bulb, and pull the bulb out. You may need a set of pliers for that. Replace the bulb, the bulb assembly, and plug in the wiring assembly. Once again, pliers may be needed for that. Replace the plastic backing and the main headlight backing. .
