well i have a 1996, and it sounds stupid, but you just grab the light and pull hard. it's held in by 3 clips, its a really pain to get them out too. the key is pull hard, but dont break the clips, try in warm weather or after the engine is warm and warmed the plastic clips. good luck

the whole housing. to take out the bulb you have to twist off this large plastic thing that holds the bulb in behind the housing. thats aloso a pain tho. there really is no easy way. i actulyl find taking the housing out easier then taking just the plastic lock off, because then it's easier to take the bulb out of the houseing once the housing is out, because the battery is in the way on the right head light. check out my website, i totally redid my headlight to e-code lights, then put in HID lights in them.

i've got a 95 zj and just changed mine this morning when the bulb went driving home. the one by the battery isnt hard, there was something holding the battery down, i just took that off real quick and leaned the battery back an inch. to remove the power plug to the bulb, you'll notice theres a little clip on it. i jiggled the wire for a min and it popped the clip off. after that there's a white plastice piece surrounding the bulb, turn it counter clockwise (toward the driver seat if you are facing the front of your jeep). it will turn a little then pop out. after that just pull the bulb out and pop in your new one. put the plastic pice back in, then the power clip, then adjust that thing that held the battery. any? i did this in 10 minutes today and it only took me that long bc i couldnt figure out how to get my hand to the light (and yes i am a new-bie like all hell, but hey i read my manual and do my best).

hope that helps u some, if it doesnt let me know i'll take a pic if you want.

I recently changed out my bulbs with the sylvania silver brights or whatever you call them. Much better. If you do some searching on JU there are some threads about cleaning the inside of the housing when it starts to get dirty or yellowed.
