Hi Ellen, I think that there are two ways to do it. If you can remove the plastic covering over the headlight then you can detach two clips that hold the light assembly in place and pull it out, once you do that you have access to the bulbs. the other way is to in through the engine but theres a little more it. I did a quick search and came up with this site too. http://www.autozone.com/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/04/d0/ec/0900823d8004d0ec/repairInfoPages.htm I hope that helps!
