there's a tab on the plastic ring that you need to pop, and then wiggle the whole light assembly out and disconnect the wires
access for the bulbs is a panel you undo at the back of the light assembly, and the low-beam bulb is the first one you encounter when you reach in. (H1 should be the bulb)
putting it back in requires even more wiggling, as you tighten the plastic ring and lock it in place (pay attention that you get the light back in flush to the body work)

No. Just twist black locking retainer about half turn counterclockwise (left), remove it & wiggle bulb out. replace bulb without touching glass part of it which shortens the life if you do. Add a little vaseline to Orange O ring, to make it pop back in, after you make sure tabs on bulb are aligned with ones in the hole of housing. You may need to wiggle it back in too. Put retaining ring back on, turn clockwise until it locks, plug wire connector back in to back of bulb, until it snapps onto catch on bulb and your good to go.

found this online- haven't tried yet though--
How do you change a headlight bulb on a 2003 Toyota Celica GT? Under the plastic covering the headlight there is a lot of fog and condensation and I want to clean it off, so how do I take off the plastic that covers the headlight?
already on the front cover
The way to open that
1. There is four screws at the back of
the headlights and unscrew them
2. Pull the headlight and dry it
by wiping or heat of the sun or
anything that can release the fog
3. Buy silicon and seal the headlight
gap with silicon and let it dry for a hour
This will help kept away fog
and condensation for sure

I had a similar problem on my 04 expedition. I just bought it and the headlights were aiming too far down. A rather larger gap was noticeable between the headlight and the hood. The so called adjustment bolt did nothing. I removed the headlights and found 2 issues. On the adjustment bolt there is a washer. Make sure when you re-install the headlight the washer sets on top of the plastic slot and is visible when looking down behind the headlight. Without the washer being in the correct location it will not tighten the headlight in place.
Second I found the adjustment bolt adjusted nothing. It merely tightened the headlight in place. What I had to do was to loosen this bolt and physically move the headlight into place and the re-tighten the bolt. Hence the slot is the adjustment. Turning the bolt CW or CCW did not move the headlight.
I tried several things trying to figure why the lights would not move until I realized I could move the light with my hands and tightened them in place using the adjustment bolt.
This may not be your issue but I found the owners manual instructions to be useless.

thought i already answered this... must have been for someone else... you should be able to access the bulb from within the engine compartment... if it's on the side of the battery you may have to remove it. do not touch the bulb with your fingers as that shortens the life of it.
