Changing headlights

Does anyone here know how to change a headlight bulb. I see the harness and plug that plugs into the back of the bulb, but do not know how to remove the bulb. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. In addition, does anyone have a 2004 Service Manual for sale?
Thanks
Davetti

Unplug connector from harness, remove rubber boot. Next you will see a metal clip holding the bulb in, unclip "spring like"and take out bulb

Clean the new bulb of any fingerprints or body oils before you mount it. That's an old one, you probably already knew, huh?
