Don't know for sure but have you popped the hood and looked at the back side of the light assembly. Some models had a pile of wires that were wrapped in black that went to a plug. Think the plug is grey. You twist this - its like a key slot - and then pull and the grey thing will come out and give you access to the bulb. (I think you twist counter clockwise to the from the driver's position. Hope this helps)

If you can't get this figured out, most parts stores will help you figure stuff like this out. Will probably put the bulbs in for you for free if you buy them from their store. I know ours will. Good luck. Hope this helps.

When in doubt, either get a Chilton's manuel or tell the nice man at the auto parts store and he'll be glad to assist.
