Do you know off hand if the bulbs can be replaced from the back or the front by removing the cover. I tried to pull it out the back and just the connector came off. I dont want to start pulling things apart until I know for sure.

Easiest way is to stick your hand in front of the battery and take the dust cover off, twist the bulb and done. I'm lucky, have smaller hands! lol, If you can't get to it, remove the battery for easy access.

If your car with xenon head light you don't try to replace bulb, it's need experience hand to do it, if it's jest normal light you can replace it, first open engine hood then have a look back side of the head light you can see back cover, on the cover you can see direction have mentioned open and lock turn the cove to open direction, after that you can see the electrical socket for bulb jest pull it out then have a good look the bulb have lock by the tensioned string lock, if you have good look you can see how it's can remove, it have hookup on bottom you have to press the lock for release from locking point after release from lock you have to fold it up and take bulb out, the bulb also have center lip to fix it right position you must have good look before remove the bulb and keep it in mind, center lip must be set upward, and install revers order, is this information helped you?
REACH BEHIND HEAD LIGHT ASSEMBLY.ROTATE THE SEALING COVER COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO REMOVE IT FROM THE HEAD LIGHT HOUSING.REMOVE THE BULB LOCKING SPRING. DISCONNECT THE BULB ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR.PULL STRAIGHT OUT ON THE BULB TO REMOVE IT.BY BULBS BEING HALOGEN.DONT TOUCH WITH BARE HANDS. OIL FROM HANDS WILL CAUSE BULB TO BLOW BY OVERHEATING.HANDLE BULBS WITH CLEAN GLOVES OR NEW CLOTH GLOVES.
There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.
Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.
The actual light? or just the bulb inside the light?... If you mean the whole light then pop the hood and look around the lens and you will a few screws that hold it in place. Remove and replace. If you mean the bulb, pop the hood and and look behind the light cover and you will see where the light bulb attachment screws into the back. Unscrew the attachment and remove the bulb. When you replace with the new bulb be careful to not touch the bulb with your bare hands as a chemical reaction will cause the bulb to burn out faster than normal. Put it all back together as it was before and you are good to go.
I know it sound obsured but i found the easiest way without damaging anything or your hands is to take the front bumper off, it's about two hrs work.
Really there is no easy way unless you can find somebody with really small hands and even then its hard.hope this helps
