Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Here is the instructions on head light removal to access and replace the bulb.If you can access the bulb without removing the headlight this would be easier but if not follow this procedure:

1. Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal. 2. Loose the fastener of radiator grill cover (A) and the mounting bolts.

3. Remove the mounting bar (B) by pulling up after raising the radiator grill cover (A).

4. Remove the head lamp assembly after disconnecting the lamp connector. NOTE: Take care that holding clip (A) is not to be damaged.

5. Installation is the reverse of removal.
