under the hood there will be a large, plastic weather cover to unscew by hand, remove the 3 pin connecting plug, there will be a spring loaded clip holding in the globe, depress the looped end and divert it over to one side thsi will release the globe, assembly is in reverse, be careful as not to touch the end og the globe, as the oil on your fingers are detremental to its operation. No special tools required to do this. Good luck

Open the hood and look in the area behind the headlight itself. You will see the wires running in to the light through a collar. Turn the collar counter clockwise and remove the assembly. Remove the bulb and plug in the new bulb and reverse the process to replace.

Replacing low beam bulbs:
Turn off engine and open the hood.
Remove the front wheelhouse liner. Whichever side, say we begin with the front left(drivers). If you dont wish to remove the front left tire, just turn the wheels far to the right to gain enough clearance. And you dont need to remove the whole liner and all the screws and retainers. . Just remove only those nearest the headlight and front bumper area in order to loosen the front half portion of the wheelhouse liner. Just enough for your arms to reach inside.
At this point, try to reach in for the rear of the headlamp. Work your hands inside to remove ccw the lamp cap, and then on the low beam bulb. Note the position before turning it counterclockwise to remove.
Note: If you still need more clearance for better access, you can (1) remove the tire. or (2) remove the 3 screws that secure the bumper to the body, and then pull outwards to loosen.Try to reach in again. If still not possible for you, proceed with the next removal.
Remove the front sight shield. This is the plastic shield with seven pop up retainers. After removing the front sight shield, you will get a better view of the headlamp mounting bolts.
Remove the 4 bolts of the headlamp assembly. Two on top, and one on both sides. Then pull the headlamp forward enough and try to reach in your hand to remove the bulb cover and then remove the bulb from its socket and connector. turn ccw to remove. Note also the bulb position before you remove it from its socket.
Need more clearance? Remove the remaining retainers(6) thats supporting the front bumper fascia from the top. It will be better if you have an assistant who can pry out gently the loosened bumper on that particular side, while you carefully maneuver the headlamp assembly removal inch by inch. If in case still unlucky, or you if found later that the bulb connector is melted or burned, proceed furthermore and remove the headlamp assembly all the way.
A burned connector needs to be replaced and a new bulb installed, even if you find the old bulb not busted.
With all the parts removed, you wiill have a better view of all other components within that area, the other bulbs, the horn, the fog lamp, so that the next time you need to work on them you'll have a better gameplan. It's a matter of practice. I hope you noted how and where components were removed, so you wont be lost in the reinstallation. Okay, sir? I hoped wyet-helped. goodluck. : )

Looking under the hood, there is a black box on the right with 6 or 8 torx head screws. You will need (I think)T-25 Torx bit and atleast a 6" extension. It still needs to be finnagled out after being unscrewed. It's not too difficult of a task, but may take 20mins or so if you've never done it before.
