Easiest way is to stick your hand in front of the battery and take the dust cover off, twist the bulb and done. I'm lucky, have smaller hands! lol, If you can't get to it, remove the battery for easy access.
The passenger side requires removal of the aircleaner box.
The halogen bulb is installed through the back of the headlight housing. Yo will need to remove the battery if it is blocking access. Your truck my have the DelcoLoc anti theft system on your stereo. That will need to be disabled before you disconnect the battery, otherwise your stereo won't work when you hook the battery back up and you will have to get a code to unlock it.
Open the hood of the truck and just inside the front frame rail behind the lights there will be 2 clips kind of sticking up. Just pull them up and out. The composite head light fixture can now be pulled out through the front. You must lift slightly, at least on the units with embedded fog lamps since there are 2 vertical tabs in addition to the stubs which you released when you removed the clips. You will have to press the safety catch and turn the lamp base to get to the lamp.DO NOT TOUCH THE LIGHT BULB OR LAMP WITH YOUR BARE HANDS! THE OIL FROM YOUR SKIN CAN CAUSE THE HALOGEN LAMP TO EXPLODE! THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THESE LAMPS GENERATE A LOT OF HEAT so use clean gloves or a clean rag to change the actual lamp then re insert the lamp base into the composite housing. Push the whole fixture back into its bay and replace the retaining clips. Getting them back in is a little more tricky than getting them out but make sure that you get both retaining clips back in right or your head lights will not be pointing in the correct direction and could also come loose. Thank you for using Fixya and good luck
2 screw, they are torx head, so you will need a torx driver, any parts store will have them to sell. remove the 2 screws and while pulling back, take your hand from the side and whack the light lens towards the middle of the truck, this will dislodge the clips.
Dip beam (outer) headlight
Open the bonnet.
Slide open the two spring clips (A) and remove the cover (B).
Press the spring clip inwards and push towards the bulb
to release the bulb and then remove the bulb from the light
unit. Pull the connector from the bulb.
Fit a new bulb to the connector, type H1 for dipped beam.
Fit the bulb to the light unit, the bulb will only correctly fit in
one position. Engage the spring clips to retain the bulb and then
fit the cover and retain using the two spring clips.
Close the bonnet.
Note: High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon light units,
type D2S 35W, are not renewable, contact your Dealer if the headligh fails to operate
I know it sound obsured but i found the easiest way without damaging anything or your hands is to take the front bumper off, it's about two hrs work.
Really there is no easy way unless you can find somebody with really small hands and even then its hard.hope this helps
