This is a problem - I had both drivers and passenger bulbs go on me and came at it through the wheel arch. The method is the same for both sides.
Short handled Phillips screwdriver
2 x Latex gloves - to save scratches and dirty hands
Use 1 glove to save your hands
Lift bonnet to get as much light on the job as you can
Turn wheel in so you can get at wheel arch liner unmolested
Remove the plastic nuts – don’t loose them
Peel back liner – you can now see the back of the lens cover
You may need a torch, I did
Turn cover and pull it away – you can now see back of bulb
Remove clip, noting the way to the comes out, there is a notch on the base of the bulb and the replacement must go in that way
Use clean glove to handle bulb, keep to base of bulb and not the glass
Replace is the reverse of the above
Allow 30-45 mins first time

On my Mazda I did the following:
- Pulled off the electrical connector socket from the back of the headlight housing.
- Pried off the rubber boot on the back side of the headlamp assembly.
- Removed the wire bracket surrounding bulb by removing the screw that held it in place, although it may be possible to remove the bulb without removing the bracket.
- Extract the bulb from the headlight assembly.
Reassembly was just the revrese of the above steps.

I guess you refer to the dipped beam headlamp?
If the light is a normal one, not the fancy expensive bright lamp, bluish colour light emitted you should be able to reach it throgh the wheelarch after removing part of the plastic trim.
The cover rotates and can be easily removed.
The there is the usual wire spring loop that hold the lamp in.
The lamp in mine was a standard H1 single filament bulb.
Took about 20 minutes to replace in semi darkness with the aid of a wind-up torch!
Hope this helps.

Behind the head lamp you'll see a circular cap with some fins on it. Turn it counter clockwise and then it should come out exposing the back of
the bulb. Then you will need to push in and up on an angle to release the metal spring clip that holds the bulb in place. Then you can disconnect the harness to the back of the bulb and then remove the bulb. Do not touch the glass of the bulb when putting in the new one as that will cause the bulb to catastrophically fail

This is difficult give yourself a good 30 mins. I have only found one way. Bonnet up - You will need a slim torch and a stubby x headed strewdriver to remove the plastic screws that hold on the wheel arch cover. Turn wheel away to give you more room. Once this is out of the way you can see the back of the light cluster, A twist and the back cover comes off. Remove the electrical connector, locate the retaining clip (much of this is by feel) when you take out the bulb make sure you note the way it came out as the replacement must go in the same way. Do not touch the bulb glass with your fingers, use paper or gloves. By feel, re-fasten the clip then reconnect the electrics. Reposition cover and twist back on, Refasten wheel arch cover. Make sure the cover goes inside the lip of the wheel arch otherwise spray from the wheel may get in., good luck
