How to replace headlight bulbs

2014+up models' head light bulbs are so hard to reach, I did tons of research on YouTube and it looks like I need to take out the entire front face, air intake box to replace the bulbs inside the light. Does any one have a step by step instruction in PDF? May be some dealer internal training material?

Thank you

Re: How to replace headlight bulbs

There were some instructions for the 2011- 2013 models.

It would be pretty much the same on the 2014 +

I though it would be similar but turns out they changed the layout under the hood. I'd like to upgrade front turn signal, low+high beam and side marker.

Here is the only video I found for HID package( mine is not HID, regular headlight) :

Re: How to replace headlight bulbs

Those are still in the same place if you have halogen headlamps.

Of course the 2014 low beam bulb is now behind the cap...

Once you get in there you can get to the bulbs.

So should I get access from the front wheels or under the hood? By the way, how about the turn signal and sidmarkers?
