AnswerFirst you disconnect the 3 prong electric plug. To disconnect squeeze the side tabs together. The push tabs are easy to push in but they are protected from accidental access by hard tabs. You need to get behind the tiny little tabs and press down on the flaps behind them. The release flaps press IN on their front end. They are about 1/8" wide and hard to get to if you have big hammy fingers like mine. (for you other IT geeks - it almost needs a keyboard key puller) The connector will pull back, but if you feel the spring you are not loose and are pulling on the bulb retaining spring. Pull away from the bulb. If you are free it comes right off, easily.

Now you can pull off the protective rubber covering, (its a little snug so give it a tug from the 2 tabs on the top and bottom). Note the little arrow on the top so you get the orientation right on reassembly.

Next loosen the larger of the 2 Phillips head screws, the one on the side. This loosens the spring bracket that clips in the bulb. Just "loosen" the screw. Now you can push down on the spring clip opposite screw and swing it open like a gate hinged at the screw.

This clip holds the bulb securely in place. Pull out the old bulb and replace it with the new one.

DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB. Use a clean napkin or tissue. Any contaminants on the bulb concentrates the bulbs heat and shorten the bulb life.

The bulb has 3 spacing tabs on it so it can only go in one way. Make note of this when you remove it so you may replace it the same way. follow the steps in reverse and your done.

Note: The little wire clip that holds the bulb in can be a pain. Make sure you get a really good look at it, since it can pop out if you loosen the screw too much. If you get lost, you can always look at the other headlight. Oh, and don't do this in the dark.
