You'll need to remove the headlamp from the car. Once this is done, its pretty easy: remove the rear, round black cover on the back of the headlamp unit.

This reveals the xenon starter unit. Release its electrical connector; turn it anticlockwise to release and remove it.

This reveals a black ring which holds the xenon bulb in place. This also undoes anti-clockwise, but look closely, there's a little black locking tab which needs to be lifted before you can turn it. Once removed, you can withdraw the xenon bulb.

If he had small hands like me that's prob how! I too have changed all bulbs in both headlights without removing anything. A few scratches on my hand when done and about 20 mins to do both sides.

Has anyone replaced the front amber sidelight bulbs without removing the entire assembly?

That's basically what I did eke. But I seriously doubt anyone with big hands will do it as space is tight.

As for the Amber side light bulbs I've changed these without removing anything but the drivers side is very awkward with the tanks in the way.

But the Amber side light beside the LDS tank can be accessed fairly easily with long angled needle nose pliers to gain access and the required turning force. That's how I do it anyway.
