Pull the hood release lever that is to the right below the sterring wheel. This will pop your hood a little bit and then on the body of the car, right in the center on the black metal, you will feel a lever, move it towards the direction of the driver. I found this in my owners manual.
Lift the hood and look behind the headlight assembly, there you will fine two black colored lever devices. Pull up on the lever devices and the head light assembly will unattach from the vehicle. You are then able to access the sockets and replace your headlamp.

It turns out the headlight switch is not a serviceable part on the Subaru Forester. Instead, the entire turn signal lever must be replaced (a $100 part). A brief description of how to replace the turn signal lever follows: First, remove the steering column cover. There are three screws underneath - remove those. Then release the steering column adjustment lever and leave it down. The bottom part of the steering column cover unsnaps from the top part and you should be able to remove it easily. The top part of the steering column cover can just stay there and be moved as necessary to gain access to screws. Next, remove two screws where the turn signal lever assembly attaches to the steering column. Remove the electrical harness and the turn signal lever assembly should just pull straight out. Reverse the process to put in the new turn signal lever assembly.
A turn signal will be activated once you engage it, to do so is very simple. Usually it is a control built in to a small lever that is on either side of the steering wheel column. To activate all you do is push the lever down to activate the right turn signal and push the lever up to activate the left turn signal. Happy driving
grip it firmly and pull it straight out,new one pushes back in.
Remove the bolt in the lever perch. For a clutch lever, loosen the cable enough to remove the broken lever and replace the new one. Adjust the clutch cable back and replace the bolt in perch. For the brake (disc brake)) lever, you simply remove the bolt and replace lever, put the bolt back in the perch and you're done. If you have drum brakes, it is the same as the clutch lever routine.
The problem is caused by the headlight switch in the turn signal lever. The headlight switch loosens over time and causes electrical shorts which make the headlight go out when the switch is jiggled. This happens most commonly when indicating in either direction. The fix is to replace the turn signal lever. The lever is approximately $100 and can be easily replaced at home. Unscrew 3 screws on the bottom of the steering wheel column cover. Push the steering wheel height adjustment lever all the way down to remove the cover. The turn signal lever can then be removed by removing the electrical harness and unscrewing the two screws that secure it to the steering column. Reverse the process to put in the new turn signal lever.
Turn signal lever assembly can be replaced without removing the steering wheel. See instructions at the attached link question about replacing the headlight switch on a 1999 Subaru Forester.
