1 Remove the two front wheels - to access the rear of the headlamps and the bulb sockets.

2 Locate the headlamp assembly splash shield in the front wheel well opening. Pull on the tabs by hand to unlock the splash shield from the headlamp assembly. Work one side off at a time. Use a flat head screwdriver to carefully pry the shield at one of the sides, if necessary, until it pops off.

3 Use your hands to disconnect the wire bundle from the back of the headlamp socket.

4 Turn the socket counterclockwise 1/4 turn by hand to remove it from the housing. Insert the replacement bulb and turn the socket clockwise 1/4 turn by hand to lock it into place.

5 Reconnect the wire bundle and snap the splash shield back into place over the headlamp assembly. Test the operation of the headlamps.
