I know you posted awhile ago, but I hope maybe this could still help you. If you have a 2004 Durango it it second generation and I wouldn't recommend removing the entire assembly. Turn your wheel one way and then inside the wheel well is a plastic door you slide up and then out and you can reach right into the back of the headlight assembly. Turn the wheel and go to the other side. It's a pain, but it's a lot easier.

There are two methods. 1.) It is possible to maneuver your hand to the lock ring on each headlight assemble from inside the engine compartment. You must work "blind" -- by feel only. The lock ring rotates 1/4 turn to unlock. On the side of the engine with the battery, you must remove the front portion of the plastic battery box. 2.) This method is much easier. Three bolts (one at the top, two on the bottom) that hold the headlight assembly to the vehicle. Look directly at theheadlight, and look in the gap between the top of the headlight and the vehicle fender, and also at the gap between the bottom of the headlight and the vehicle bumper. With the aid of a light, you should be able to see all three bolts. Using a socket and an extension to your ratchet, remove the bolts, pull out the headlight assembly, and remove the lock ring. TAKE CARE TO HANDLE THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY GENTLY so as to not alter the setting of the headlight in respect to the headlight frame. By taking care, it will not be necessary to have the headlight(s) adjusted.

SOURCE: Changing the bulb for a headlight

I guess you refer to the dipped beam headlamp?
If the light is a normal one, not the fancy expensive bright lamp, bluish colour light emitted you should be able to reach it throgh the wheelarch after removing part of the plastic trim.
The cover rotates and can be easily removed.
The there is the usual wire spring loop that hold the lamp in.
The lamp in mine was a standard H1 single filament bulb.
Took about 20 minutes to replace in semi darkness with the aid of a wind-up torch!

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: head light bulb replacement

Open the hood. Look at the top edge of the headlight. About 1/3 to 1/4 of the way in from the inner edge of the housing, you'll see a rectangular clip, and about 10" outboard of that clip, you'll see a matching one. Simply pull up on those clips - they're slide locks for the headlight housing. Once you pull them up, you'll be able to pull the whole headlight housing out towards you, and from there, you can unclip and remove the bulb sockets in question.

SOURCE: replacing my headlight bulb in my kia amanit 2004

  1. Open the hood of your KIA Amanti and look behind the headlight that has gone out. Locate the round knob on the back of the headlight.
  2. Turn the knob counterclockwise 1/4 of a turn and gently remove it from the back of the headlight. Carefully remove the electrical cable within the headlight housing that is attached to the back of the headlight bulb.
  3. Locate the metal clip that holds the light bulb in place by pushing the clip arm straight in and sliding it down. Remove the bulb from the headlight housing.
  4. Replace the old headlight bulb with new bulb. Secure it by sliding the metal clip up to hold the bulb in place. Reattach the electrical cable and replace the round knob to the back of the headlight housing.
  5. Turn on the headlights to verify that they are in working order.

Change the headlight bulb

You will need to reach in behind the light and release the locking collar and then pull the light bulb assembly out of the housing and replace the bulb then lock it back down. It gets pretty tight in that area but should be able to be done with a minimum of of other parts like the air box or hose having to be removed.
