Easiest way:-
Jack up, remove wheels, remove inner splash guards, remove bumper, then remove headlight assembly.

You then have easy access to the bulbs :mad:.

Gave up trying to remove bulbs without removing headlamp. Glad I did, as re-fitting was fiddly, even with headlight unit removed!!!

Once you have done it for first time, it only takes an hour or two next time.

The left side is easy to change without removing anything and I have never had one fail, always the right side.

While you have the bumper off, you might consider upgrading both sides to Sylvania Silver Star bulbs, I upgraded ALL of my bulbs to Silver Stars and makes a big difference. They make both standard and the HID bulbs.
