How do you replace the low beam bulb on a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass?

I have a 1999 olds Cutlass GL but the bulb replacement should be the same 1. With the hood open and the engin off, pull the fastener out of the plastic splash shield covering the top of the headlamp assembly and remove it. 2. Carefully pull directly up on the two latches 3. Remove the lamp assembly from the vehicle by pulling forward. 4. Unclip the wiring harness and twist the bulb less than on-quarter of a turn counterclockwise and remove. Gently wiggle the bulb out of the socket. 5. Reconnect the wiring harness to the bulb or lamp assembly 6. Replace the lamp to its original position by carefully lining up the lamp to the mounting balls. 7. Press down on the tow latches. Replace the splash shield by pushing down on the retainer. Hope this helps
