Unplug the wire connector from the bulb, pull off the big black round rubber water seal, jiggle the metal locking pin (kinda like a mousetrap) to get it to open, then pull out the bulb. (On the passenger side, you probably need to unbolt the fuse box first to be able to reach). Installing the headlight is the same process in reverse. Make sure to put the water seal back on in the correct orientation (there's a little line that should be on the top). Takes maybe 10 minutes. GE 9003 HB2 bulb, can find at Walmart and elsewhere.

Remove the headlight wiring harness. Remove the headlight retaining bolts. Each headlight has four retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new headlight.
Honestly, just look in your User's Manual, if you can't find it: all you need to do is take out 2 really long screws that screw into the top of the headlight, and then slide the headlight forward onto the bumper, and the headlight pulls out from the back.
