The halogen replacement bulb assemblies go in at the rear of the headlight plastic housing. It's just a twist lock to remove the lamp. After removal of the burnt out bulbs, do not touch the new halogen bulb with your fingers, latex gloves work best. oils from your fingers will cause the outer glass to break when bulb gets hot
Someone with skills/tools to enter a car with the keys locked in it may be able to get you in there.Ask a locksmith(they will probably charge less if you bring the car to them).The various vehicle entry tools to open a door might also work to open the hood.

Removing the bulb for an extended period of time may affect headlight bulb performance. Contaminants may enter the headlight assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector.

May have a small head gasket leak or cracked head or block, that is usually the way water will get into your oil, unless it was poured in by mistake through the oil fill tube. If you are losing water in your radiator, there are major issues there.
On either side of the headlight wiring assembly, in the engine compartment, you will find 2 small tabs. They are located to the sides and towards the bulb of the plastic assembly. Press these 2 tabs in while pulling the wire assembly out. Remove the rubber gasket and unhook the wire spring holding the bulb in place. The bulb come right out. The bulbs are halogen so do not handle the new bulb by the glass.
