If it is the headlight itself. There may be a cover or shroud on the front of the engin bay. Remove that, may be a combination of clips and screws. If it does not cever the light area, it is even easier. There will probably be 3 screws or nuts, remover these and unplug the electrical to the light. From there you should just be able to pop the light out of place. If you are just replacing the bulbs. Where the power goes into the assembly, turn the clip, may be grey in color and pull out of the headlight assembly and replace the light bulb. But don't touch the new bulb the oils from your skin will damage the bulb.

Behind the head lamp you'll see a circular cap with some fins on it. Turn it counter clockwise and then it should come out exposing the back of
the bulb. Then you will need to push in and up on an angle to release the metal spring clip that holds the bulb in place. Then you can disconnect the harness to the back of the bulb and then remove the bulb. Do not touch the glass of the bulb when putting in the new one as that will cause the bulb to catastrophically fail

If your car and headlights are off then you will not get a shock. You have to unplug the bulb to replace it anyway so there is no way for you to get shocked.

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.

check the wiring from the headlight. You want to find the ground wire which is usually a black wire thats secured to some metal part of the car. Basically just check that all your wires are in tact and tightly secured. A bad ground is a very common electrical problem.
