There are 4 headlight caps on this model-2 on each side, the caps must be unscrewed in order to access the back of the headlight socket, once the cap for the headlight is removed you must also unlock a spring mechanism and then you will be able to access the headlight socket to replace the bulb-bulbs are fairly priced and most auto parts stores

SOURCE: How do you replace a Drivers side headlight bulb 2006 kia spectra

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.
