Really??? All that to change a bulb. Amazing. I assume you don't know of any workarounds or shortcuts.
Expert:  George H. replied 5 years ago.
You asked how to change the headlamp, the bulb is much less work.

Is it the left or right bulb you need to replace?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
it is the left or driver side.
Expert:  George H. replied 5 years ago.
On the left side you raise the vehicle and remove the fender inner liner to get access to the back of the lamp, then remove the cap, the electrical connector and push in and down on the side of the wire retainer to disengage it. The retainer swings open like a door then you can remove the bulb. Note the tab on the top of the bulb base, it has to fit in the recess of the lamp housing and do not touch the bulb with you fingers so as not to get oils on the glass.
