Just changed mine about 30 minutes ago. First, get the replacement bulbs from any automotive part store. Lift the hood, and behind the lamp, there is a plastic twist coupling that you unscrew. Withdraw the bulb assembly. That was the easy part. You'll find that the lamp is held to the rest of the assembly with a plastic latch. Take a small flathead screwdriver and lightly pry the latch. Then pull, not too hard. Once detached, remove the old lamp from the coupling. Install the new bulb in the coupling, then reattach to the wire. That process should take about 5 minutes. Now comes the hard part. You not only have to line up the coupling with the back of the lamp, you have to make sure you're holding the assembly just right so the there is enough clearance to allow you to twist it back on. It took me about 10 minutes and alot of cussing to get just one back in. You'll have to move the battery back to get enough clearance to work on the light assembly in front of that. Overall, it took about 25 minutes to do both. Good luck.
