Default Changing low-beam headlight bulb - 2001 Bonneville SLE

Has anybody tried changing the low-beam headlight bulb on their Bonneville? I have tried to change it, but there is not any room to fit my hand in the space. Any ideas?

May have to remove the capsule from the car to gain enough room to get into the low beam. Maybe have to remove some small easy parts to get to it?

You really have to do some twisting, but you can reach the bulb sockets. It'* not easy...but it can be done.

there are two bolts on the top of the headlight that you can unscrew and pull the headlight straight out. Took me literally 5 minutes to change a headlight bulb.
