Assuming yours is the same as mine, I just did both my low beam (H7 12v 55W) and my High Beam (H3 12V 55W). Got both at Cdn Tire (got the
white light HID look-alike type)
What I ended up doing may work for you. Will be easy if you too have daughters because you will have a good supply of hand mirrors around. Armed with one of said mirrors, and a flashlight, pop the back cover off the headlight housing and then aim it so you can see the reflection of the back end of the housing.
You'll see the H3 bulb in the hole closest to the ground and then the one you're after in the one just above it. Once you remove the two-prong plug connecting to the backside of the headlight bulb, frig with the clips and soon you'll find that you are able to to drop the bulb out of there very easily.
I'm sure you know already but to avoid touching the new bulb glass (a no no) place it back in the hole right away and re-frig with the clips to get them to hold it in place. Then connect the plug back up and put the cover back on .... after you test to make sure everything's working.
BTW ...... I unnecessarily relpaced my high beam bulb when I thought it had quit (coincidentally when the low-beam had croaked .. should have known that would be unlikely). The problem was that I had not flipped the copper ground back in place onto the back of the H3 bulb holding piece. Sorry about using all these technical names of things .....
Also -- I found step by step instructions on doing this job in the Service and Maintenance manual. If you can imagine they were exactly correct too if you followed each step in order
