I replaced my bulb last week. It is easy process. Just be careful when putting the screws back in. They have a little shoulder on them that needs to line up this the holes.
Remove the two screws from the reflector assembly.
Tilt the top of the headlight reflector assembly out from the top. There is a tab in the bottom that holds the bottom in.
Disconnect the headlight connector. It just plugs in.
Remove the dust cover from around the back of the reflector that covers the bulb base.
Unhook the bulb retainer. If you look at it closely, you will see how to unhook it. See link in above post.
Remove the bulb.
Put new bulb (do not touch the glass part of the bulb) in and reverse above procedure.
I had a little trouble getting the reflector assembly back in because the all the wire in the headlight. I had to work with it a little to get the wire moved around to get it back in.
