On the driver's side there is a plastic cover over the headlight assembly. You have to remove the 3 screws (shown in the manual). Then lift off the plastic. The screws are held in place by plastic mounts, which are attached to the plastic plate, you have to remove them as well or they'll fall off and land in your engine bay - never to be seen again.
The passanger side doesn't need to have any plastic removed, you have to wedge your hand in there to get to the bulbs.
