You first need to remove the turn signal assembly. Do this by removing the torx screw that is in the corner of the groove between the headlight and turn signals. You will also need to unfasten the rubber weather stripping mounted on button-hole style knobs, two on the headlight and two on the signal assembly. Slide the signal unit forward and off to the side. Beware that there are other larger size torx screws that may you see in the vicinity, these are for adjusting the aim of the headlight, so you'll probably want to leave those alone.

With the turn signals removed, you should be able to see the headlight housing bolts. There are 3 bolts; 2 underneath the headlight housing and one on the side of the housing towards the center of the vehicle. Remove these bolts and you can pull out the housing. The housing will still be connected to the vehicle in the outter upper corner with a plastic ball joint type connecteror, just keep pulling or gently pry it off and it should dislodge. Disconnect the wire harness from the rear of the bulb and headlight assembly. Now you can easily unscrew the bulb retaining ring and replace the bulb.

Be sure to use caution when handling the halogen bulb, use a clean rag or paper towel to avoid touching the bulb surface with your hands. Any oil, even body oil from your finger, will heat up and boil on the bulb when it's on and cause the bulb to burn out prematurely. If you get oil on it, clean with rubbing alcohol.

Estimate time for repair: Approx. 15-20 min per bulb.
