My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!
The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

check out the type of bulb you need at your local auto parts store. if it plugs into a socket in the rear of the light, be careful NOT to touch the glass part of the bulb when replacing it. it will put the oil from your skin on the bulb and when it reaches operating temps it will blow again Just figure out what type bulb it takes and repost if you need assistance.

check the wires to the plug for damage that could cause a short.do not touch the glass on a halogen bulb-the oil from your fingerprint can cause a 'hot spot' leading to premature failure. clean 'dirty' bulbw/alcohol & a clean cloth.

Hi, it might be a fuse that is blown as the high beam and low beam work on 2 different circuits because of the current that each circuit use. If all the fuses are fine you should look for power on the light socket where it connects to the bulb. If there is no power you will need to see if you have power from the switch. If the switch does not give power to the wire leading to the relay the switch can be replaced. If there is power from the switch to the relay, but not from the relay to the lights you need to replace the relay otherwise it might be that you have a bad connection or broken wire
