Whole headlight or bulb? Bulb, just undo the retaining clip and pull out the bulb. No twist on this bulb, just straight out.

Get a light in to see the retaining clip. It has a tab to one side which you can pull and wiggle to release. It then swings away from the backside of the bulb.

OK - but undoing the wire is a bit challenging sometimes, you have to press hard on the sides of the wire clip by inserting your fingers in between the clip and the rubber seal (note the headlight will feel loose). Headlight, 4 bolts hold it in place, 2 on the top, 1 underside left and 1 underside right. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The headlight dimmer switch is located on the end of the lever. Remove the steering column so the lever can be properly reached.
