Re: Driver's side head light
There is 2 plastic clips behind the headlight, lift these up and pull the headlight out. Then just twist the plastic cap out of the headlight and replace. (Do not touch the bulb when replacing). Then put headlight back in all the way and slide the plastic retainer clips back into position.

Hello first start by opening your engine hood rite behind your head lamp pot is a plug socket simply twist counter clock wise and socket will come out remove bulb and replace turn clock wise to tighten up turn head lights on to check that new bulb works both high and low beam you have now changed your head lamp bulb and restored your lights
Under the hood, there are two round head lamp covers on each side. One for high beam and one for low beams. The low beam is the outer cover. Turn this cover counter clockwise and remove. This will expose the back of the bulb. There is a small clip holding the bulb into the headlight housing, but you must unplug the light before removing clip. Once you have unplugged the light, the small metal clip can now be undone. on the side opposite the hinge, push the clip in towards the casing and then to one side (which way to push depends on which light it is.) Then the clip will release. you can now remove the bulb. place new bulb in and make sure it securely fits into position. reinstall the clip and reconnect the power. check for propeer function of the lamp before replaceing the cover. Once you confirm lamp is working replace cover and you are done.
This is easiest to see on the passanger side light. The driver side is slightly more cramped.
Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.
For Front turning signal, you need to remove the whole head light system to get to turn signal. 4 screws attach it to the car's body. Make sure to remove the lamps first and disconnect the switch for the turn signal lamp. Just replaced it last week myself.
