Each headlight has a rod L shaped on the right and left end of the light. they look like latches. unlatch

the rods and pull them straight up. once the rods are removed you can pull out the headlight assembly,

and you can have access to your running lights. on the battery side you may have to remove the battery

putting the lights back on is the reverse process, you just have to alighn the holes and make sure the

wire does not get in the way. good luck!

    How do I change my front turn signal? I can access the lower signal from under the bumper, I can't access the signal that is next to the headlight. There are no screws in front to take the plate off,...

    The signal light on the grill next to the head light can be accessed by removing the the front grill. Your going to need a torque screw driver to remove the grill to get to the light bulb. The signal from under the bumper can be accessed from behind the bumper and you need not to take the turn light assemble off from the bumper. There are LED light bulbs available now and last much longer then the conventional bulbs and cost not that much more. Auto Zone carries these replacement LED bulbs and they can give you the step by step instruction to getting the job done if you need more illustration. Good luck and hope this helps and please rate, keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your lights replaced.
