Open the hood of the ES300 and prop it open.
Look at the headlight assembly from the top down. Depending on your model year, there may be a plastic panel covering the top of the headlight assembly. If this is present, remove it by lifting all of the plastic clips around the edges and lifting it off.
Locate the three bolts that hold the headlight assembly in place. Two of the bolts are in the left and right rear corners of the assembly, and the third is on the side bordering the outside edge of the car, screwed into the back of the fender panel. Remove all of these bolts with a small adjustable wrench. Though they appear to be designed to be removed with a screwdriver, the way they're arranged makes it almost impossible to remove them with one.
Slide the entire headlight assembly forward a few inches so that you can reach the back of it.
Unscrew the plastic bulb socket assembly. This is the large, round component located right in the middle of the back of the main assembly. Turn it about a quarter turn to the left and you can pull it away from the main assembly. If you're replacing both the bulb and the main assembly, see the next section on how to replace the bulb, then resume this process

Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza:
Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger
side (left). The headlight assembly
needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the
left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of
the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise
(to the left). Pull the pin straight up
to remove. The headlight assembly is now
loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that
still holds the assembly. Pull the
headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held
just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the
gasket out of the grill cowling. The
assembly should pull straight out. The
wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and
pull out the light holder. Change the
bulb. Do not punch your man-card for
credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second
time. Once you have put the L-pin in
place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch
I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.
