    Look at the tabs holding the inserts between the visible body of the headlamp and the grille. Remove those inserts for access to the headlamp.

    Not hard - I've actually done this before.

    1. Pull the grille off (4 tabs on top - get with a flathead screwdriver, I had no problems with the tabs on the bottom since my uncle put the bumper on wrong ).
    2. Pull the grille sidepiece off (tab on top, pop up with screwdriver, something similar to the grille on the bottom).
    3. 3 bolts (12 or 14mm or similar - I'm sure you can figure this out) right in front. Take them out.
    4. Pull the headlight straight forward (there's a weird inaccessible clip-like contraption... you'll see it when you get it out). You can't twist or anything, just pull in the direction of the front of the car.
