I assume it didn't work before you changed the bulb either. You'll have to check for voltage at the bulb socket when the low beam headlights are turned on. If there is none you'll have to trace the wire back to where it splits from the right low beam headlight. If there is voltage there you have a problem with the new bulb.
First the front plastic cowl has to be removed.After the front plastic cowl is removed you will see two metal brackets .This brackets can be seen at the rear of each headlight.To see how the metal clips looks see the fig below The metal clpis are circled for its location.
Now you will have to pry up this clips so the headlight assembly gets space to come out.You can use a screwdriver or ratchet handle to pry the metal brackets.See fig below for help:---
when the metal bracket/clip comes out .this is what it looks like.
The headlight is loose and you can remove the headlight .
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

No other way to get the headlight housing out other than to remove the grille not the fender. Remove the clips that secure the top of the radiator grille. There are 5 screws on the bottom portion of the grille that have to be removed before you can remove the grille. There are 3 screws and something called a guide pin on the headlight housing. Detach the electrical connector from the bracket by squeezing the lock tip with a pair of pliers. Remove the bulbs and have fun cleaning the headlight lens.
