Turn off the engine and open the vehicle's bonnet. Turn the steering wheel to the far right to access the port cap located in front of the wheel. Put on a pair of rubber gloves. Allow time for the headlights to cool down, before replacing them, as they can become extremely hot.
Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screw then turn the access port cap in front of the wheel behind the headlight.
Remove the dust cover cap from the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating the cap counterclockwise. It should simply pop out. Rotate the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove the headlamp assembly.
Pull the bulb from the socket to remove it from the assembly. Install the new bulb by pushing it into the socket.
Reinstall the lamp socket by pushing it into the headlamp assembly and turning it clockwise. Replace the dust cover cap onto the headlamp assembly and reattach the wheel well cover by securing the screw into place.
