    He's looking for a 1st gen not a second gen.

    I would assume that you take out the top screws on the grill frame in the back, then pop off the filler plate under the headlamp and find a couple screws down there. I don't know for sure, but i gave it a shot.

    IF you are just wanting to replace the bulb its self then you just pull that rubber boot off the back that goes into the headlight, then you unplug the wire from the bulb, and there is a metal piece that clips into the light housing remove that piece and the bulb will come out.

    To get the whole headlight assembly off i'm not sure I would guess theres some screws holding it in.

    Dealer would be the only place to get those clips. Ebay will have them every now and again also.
