    1. Open the hood.
    2. Remove the upper filler panel by loosening all the
    screws and then removing the grommets.
    3. Remove the two bolts fastening the headlamp to the
    headlamp mounting bracket.
    4. Pull the headlamp straight forward to disengage the
    locator pin at the outboard edge of the headlamp.
    5. To replace the low-beam bulb, first remove the
    rubber housing cover on the rear of the lamp.
    6. Then, turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to
    unlock the socket from the lamp housing.
    7. Remove the headlamp bulb socket.
    8. After removing the wiring harness connector from
    the headlamp bulb socket, replace the bulb
    assembly. Reconnect it to the wiring harness and
    reinstall the headlamp bulb assembly back into the
    headlamp housing.
    9. After reinstalling the bulb and socket, reinstall the
    rubber cover. Make sure it fully covers the
    headlamp socket.
    10. To replace the high-beam bulb, turn the bulb socket
    counterclockwise to unlock the socket from the
    lamp housing. Follow the instructions in Step 6
    through 8 to install the new bulb.
    11. Reinstall the upper filler panel by inserting the
    grommets, along with the screws, back into
    the holes.

    I copied this straight from the owners manual. But the instructions really make more sense with the pictures. If you don't have the owners manual and want one, you should really have it. You can download one free here:
