Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I assume that you are talking about a 98 Explorer.
First you have to disconect the electrical connector in the rear of the bulb. It's kind of hard to get to because the battery and battery case are kind of in the way, but it can be done. You may need a small screwdriver to lift the tab up to release it.
Next you turn the retaining nut counterclockwise then pull the bulb out.
CAUTION! Do not touch the new bulb with your bare skin. You will leave an oil residue on the bulb causing it's life to be shorter. I use rubber gloves. Also be careful not to drop either bulb because they are under pressure.
Good luck and please rate my advice.

You have a bad ground at the right rear tail light assembly
Many times the ground is right there at the light. Follow the wire from the bulb base and see where it goes. Try tightening the fixture first

Open the hood and look between the battery and the light. You will see the wires going to the bulb. Turn the bulb holder and it will slide out. This is easier to do with the battery out. If you do remove it, be careful with the wrences and the cables, I would disconnect the grounds for both batteries first.
Don't touch the glass on new bulb.

If you have headlamps failing and bulbs do not do the trick, the headlamp switch is your culprit and should be changed very very soon. Let me know if you need anything else. I have diagrams.
