Hi

if you have the big ugly square lights, you have to go in from behind it (open the hood) and twist out the retainer counterclockwise,and pull bulb straight out. remember not to touch the new bulb with your greasy fingers or the oil from them can shatter the halogen bulb.

if you have the dual sealed beams you have to take off the trim rings from the front and unplug the sealed beam straight out of the plug. if you need to adjust the beams after replacing the bulbs, there are two knobs inside (open the hood) to adjust horizontally and vertically.

thank you
