Just pull the headlight out. It is in the corner of the headlamp assembly. You will have to pull the grill off to get to the third bolt on the headlamp.

There are 2 places where the grill clips to the bumper. Shown in picture.
Press down on the outside of the bumper where the middle tab is (there should be 2 tabs facing the front of the car and the middle one will face the engine. Pressing on the bumper outside the grill by the middle tab will allow the grill to come forward. Press as far back towards the grill as you can and even get your thumb under the grill a bit if you can. You will have to press fairly hard to get the bumper to drop enough to slide the grill out. Make sure to loosen the top tabs first and start pulling the top toward you before you try and separate the bottom. Once you are done it all just snaps back in.

Another hint if you haven't figured it out yet... You can see the tabs I'm talking about by looking through the hole in the grill for the hood latch.

I always hate taking that thing off to change bulbs. Whoever designed that should be sacked.

Still not as bad as the GMC idiots where you have to remove the whole front bumper to change a headlight.

be careful as there are metal clips on the bottom of the housings that will scratch your paint on the bumper as you pull it forward and out

This. This. This. When I did my HID install, it was just dumb luck that I had my hand under the housing when I took them out.
