1. Get a milk crate to sit on.....

2. Reach up under the front cowling (you will be doing this - "blind"......!)

3. You will feel around until you place your fingers on the rubber seal (I think there is one!) covering the back of the headlight bulb.

4. Remove that and "diddle around some more".... Remove the bulb.

5.Replace in the reverse order.

TADA!!!! DONE!!!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Wear a pair of gloves. Thin ones will probably be necessary. If you get oil from your fingers on the bulb it will rather quickly cause the bulb to burn out. I just had one changed & you can see the burned in fingerprint. They also changed the other bulb & you can see where the fingerprint was burned in there also even though it had not yet blown.
I just watched the video & I saw that he only touched the BACK of the bulb. As long as you are careful to only touch the rear you should be OK.

For a little extra precaution, clean the glass part of the lightbulb
assembly with some alcohol.
