Headlamp 1997 Bonneville

I'm use to older cars so I am really stuck on this one,
1997 Pontaic Bonneville. I burned out a headlight and cannot figure out how to access this "sealed lamp/lens" unit to change it.

any ideas for this "newer vehicle" challenged person

Thanks much

Open the hood. Look to see if you can see the socket. Remove the plug, rotate the ring that holds the lamp in and remove the lamp. Reverse to install. Wear gloves and don't get the oil from your hands on the bulb, you'll wipe it out.

That being said, you might have to go from underneath or remove an access panel to get to the lamp.

Get the new lamp so you know what you are looking at. Also check the links/posts in my signature file for some ideas.
