Good morning, inorder to replace the bulb...the headlamp assembly has to be removed first:

 

REMOVAL

NOTE: Some moisture accumulation inside a vented headlamp unit is normal. Moisture will vent from tubes or vents located on the back of the unit. This normal condition will appear as a fogging on the inside of the headlamp lens (similar to the fog that sometimes appears on the inside of the windshield). This moisture may be removed by activating the headlamps on high beam for 15 minutes.

If water droplets larger than 1 mm in size have accumulated on the inside of the headlamp lens, the headlamp unit should be replaced.

 

CONCORDE/300M

  1. Release hood latch and open hood.
  2. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative remote cable.
  3. Remove the one bolt retaining the washer bottle filler neck and move aside.
  4. Remove the two bolts retaining the speed control servo and move aside.
  5. Remove fasteners to upper radiator crossmember:
    • Two jack screws on each side.
    • Three crossmember retaining bolts on each side.
    • Three push pin fasteners across top of grille.
    • Gently pry back grille and remove the two bolts to front crossmember. This will allow you to move the crossmember forward, pivoting at the radiator grille, to access the headlamp unit.

    NOTE: Once the crossmember is loose, take care not to scratch the fenders.

  6. Maneuver the headlamp unit to remove from behind fascia. Gentle prying of fascia may be needed to clear it enough to remove the headlamp unit.
  7. Disconnect the lamp connectors and transfer lamps if replacing unit
  8. Rotate retaining ring (High beam or Low beam) and pull lamp socket from headlamp housing

    CAUTION: Do not touch the glass of halogen bulbs with fingers or other possibly oily surface, reduced bulb life will result.

  9. Remove bulb from lamp wiring connector.

Your answer helped me decide that this is not a job to do in the parking lot at work while it is 5 below. Follow-up: The car has 105K miles. Since I am going to have someone replace this bulb is it suggested to change the other bulb as well? And the high beams? This process seems to be quite involved just to change a light bulb. Advice?

The choice is yours....with it out allready...sure, replacing both bulbs would be a good choice instead of paying the same labor again to have the other bulb replaced if it ever went out.
