I asked some mechanics about changing the bulb. All of them said almost the exact same thing - they are not fun to change because of the tight space to work in. You can change them out without having to remove the headlight assembly. Remove the cap at the back of the light and you should be able to replace it that way as they do here. Hopefully, you have small fingers!
Note the position of the metal bulb holder as it is removed from the light assembly, as there is a "detent" positon in the rear of the assembly that has to be met on replacing the bulb holder with the new bulb in it. The holder has to be "perfectly aligned in the assembly to correctly replace the spring clips to their slotted position.
YOU DO NOT WANT TO TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH BARE FINGERS! Oil on one's fingers will imprint the bulb glass on lighting, and decrese its life. Use rubbing alcohol if one does touch the bulb. One can recess the new bulb in the metal holder quite easily without touching the bulb, or use a clean cloth or tissue. http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif
when you're installing the new bulbs, try to put the connector on first, then instal them. if you do connect them with the bulbs already installed, you have to be carefull not to press on the connector too hard because you can break the housing.
