1. Remove the dust cover from behind the bulb that needs replacement.
2. Unplug the bulb.
3. Taking note of the bulb orientation, unhook the bulb retaining clip from the tang that holds it in place.
4. Remove the bulb.
5. Install the new bulb in the same orientation and clip in place.
6. Reconnect the electrical connector to the bulb.
7. Reinstall the dust cover.
Alternatively, if the bulb is burned out and you have less than 60,000 miles, you should take the car to the dealer and let them do it for free for you.

Open the hood, Look at where a long cable goes into the headlamp. There should be 3 screws holding the bulb in place. Take out the screws. The bottom screw might be hard to find but it is under the cable where the cable attaches to the headlamp. Once the screws are out, the bulb will come out of the headlamp still attached to the cable. The cable has a black covering around it. There is a plastic notch just above the bulb. Press it. It was a little hard to find. While you press the plastic notch, pull the bulb side (don't grab onto the bulb head itself, but just a little past the bulb) and the cable side apart. They are pretty tight, so you will have to pull hard. When the bulb side comes off the cable side, the cable will reveal a three-prong outlet. The bulb side will have three prongs that plug into the cable. At this point, bulb and cable are completely detached. Now, throw the bulb away, and go and buy a new one (10 bucks). PLug it into the cable, and then rescrew the whole thing (only 3 screws here) back into the set. Hope this helps. Only takes a few minutes. you only had to loosen one screw (and that might not even be necessary). This allowed a spring to be released. The other 2 screws were for the reflector and a hold-down tab for the spring. Simply release the spring from under the hold-down tab. An important addition worth adding to this procedure is "DO NOT TO TOUCH THE GLASS" on the new bulb. Wear clean gloves or use clean shop towels. The oil/ sweat etc. from your skin will greatly shorten the life of the bulb.

I had the same issue. It's pretty much impossible to fix it as a consumer. My mechanic didn't even know how to do it, so I was forced to take it the the dealership. They do it and it takes them about 40min. If I can recall right, it took them this long because they said it's a pain to get to and I believe had to unassemble the top part of the trunk. It cost about $10-$15.
