No instructions in tech info....but your owners manual tells you. Two 10mm bolts on the inner portion of each headlight bracket. Then, slide the whole assembly (corner lights, too) outward toward the edges of the car (there are two pins on the back side of the cornering lghts that are in holes on the body structure, and the cornering lights are attached to the headlight. That is why the whole assembly needs to slide out to clear the pins from the holes)

Nope...as long as you don't take the headlight off of the bracket (you dont have to take the headlight off of the bracket to replace the bulbls). Remove two 10mm bolts, slide/pull headlight assembly (no need to remove the corner lights, either), remove old bulb, put new bulb in, repostion pins on corner lights to holes, slide back in place, put two 10mm bolts back in. Done

if you're afraid to pull the whole assembly out there is a philips screw in between the headlamp and the corner marker as you're looking down from the top.
