    It is not necessary to remove the entire grill, just the chrome trim piece that extends across both head lights. Use a small flat screwdriver and delicately pry the trim piece towards you. It is held in place by several small plastic tabs that are located across the entire back side of the trim piece. Be VERY careful in doing this as the chrome piece is very brittle & easily broken or damaged. Protect the paint with painter's tape wherever you use the screwdriver. Once you have the trim removed, you will need to remove 3 bolts that retain the headlight assembly and one press-in tab. The bolts have 10mm heads. Two are located on the top of the assembly, one on the lower corner. After removing the 3 bolts, pull the headlight forward to dislodge the lower retaining tab which is on the opposite side of the headlight housing from the lower bolt toward the rear of the housing. Once you have the assembly out, accessing the bulb is simple!
