Default Right High Beam Burned Out - Any Advice?

Before I get into it with both arms, any advice for replacing a headlight hi-beam? I assume its a bulb and not the whole headlight? Or is it a seal-beam unit?

I just discovered the problem tonight, so haven't had a chance to lift the hood and look around in there in the daylight yet.

You can't do anything from under the hood.

So, from memory:

Assuming you have H5's just remove the single screw at the bottom of the headlight trim ring. Then remove the 3 (4?) screws holding the headlight assembly in the bucket -- careful these screws can be rusted and, if broken, can be a bugger. Once you have the headlight assembly out, unplug it from the car (one big keyed plug). Put the assembly lens down on your bench and pop off the spring tabs holding the bulb in place. Put in the new bulb (the H5's are single bulb with a dual filament) and put it all back together.
