I have a 2001 pre-model changeover which should be similar to 1999. I'm not sure if you mean replacing the headlight bulb but if that's the case you would pull out the round rubber grommet and that makes the bulb assembly accessible. You just unclip it, pull it out and replace the bulb...To change the headlight assembly (housing) there are 2 mounting bolts on top (covered)to remove, then pull out the assembly...
