if its still locked and not working , then your in for a real chore !! as these are designed to not be able to just unscrew if there locked up , if its not locked , open door and unscrew frame part from frame (screws held it on frame) then look at bottom of key lock section , see small set screw (use allen key on this ) remove this screw , then using a small pipe wrench (you didn't want to keep it right ?) unscrew the lock section lefty loosey and then with a slight pry with small screwdriver entire front cover will pop off , this exposes the screws into the door , remove them an lock will come off door (leaves big holes in door thought)
You have to remove that whole front console section of the dashboard to start by prying it up with a flat head screwdriver and gently pulling it loose from the pink retaining clips. Then unscrew the four screws with a Phillips to remove the stereo. Then you can unscrew the panel with the three temperature control knobs. Be careful not to snap the plastic clips holding the knobs in place (it is really easy to do, trust me!).

If you have power windows and door locks, take a small flat-tip screw driver, and gently pry up the switches. Unplug them. If not power, The auto parts store have a window handle removal tool. Remove the handle. Then unscrew the door lock at the top right corner of the door. Unscrew the door handle. Screws are located under the handle. If you have the pull strap, remove the covers with a screw driver. covers are at both ends of the strap. The auto parts store also sells a door panel removal tool. put that between metal and plastic cover a gently pry. it will pop the clips loose. Take your time and be gentle. after popped loose. gently tap up from the bottom. this will get it to release the clip from the frame by the window. Hope this helps.

"look for your air filter box. its a big square box on the right hand side of the
car under the hood. you cant miss it. ther should either be clips or screws
holding the box together. you have to get the top off of it to get to the
filter... just replace the filter, and put the top back on and ur good" per Chinogang Senior Member
heres how you go about removing the headlight and replacing bulbs:
you will need a 7-point star screwdriver (6+ inches)
1) unscrew the two screws on the tabs above the headlight fixture (if one is missing its not a big deal)
2) unscrew the screw on the bottom of the light fixture. It will be on the inside bottom of the light (towards the grille).
3) For the driver side: unscrew the screw that is slightly infront of the power steering reservoir (if its stuck you may need a wrench to get some movement). This screw only needs to be loosened, don't unscrew it all the way.
For the passenger side: unhook the left part of the air filter (don't worry, it pops in and out easily) there should be a screw towards the hole for the air filter on the upper left of the light, loosen it.
4) Slide the headlight fixture out of the car and undo the little metal clips over the covers. take off which ever cover holds the old bulb and replace it witht he new one. BE CAREFUL! DON;T TOUCH THE BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS, THE OIL MAY CAUSE THEM TO EXPLODE
And on the off chance you make the same mistake as me and drop the screwdrier into the engine block, park your car up on a curb and get it from below.
