Well you can take two approches to changing the headlamp bulbs. First, although it is a tight fit you can pop the hood. remove the black plastic guards(for lack of a better word) you will see what im talking about, and reach your hand in the rear of the head lamp, remove the rubber cover and pull the bulb out and change. Another way is to remove the grille, and trim that fits underneath the headlamp, and remove the whole headlight assembly. it is alot easier to see what you are doing with the headlamp assembly removed
