The bulbs or the whole housing?
Bulbs are fairly easy - there are access panels in the wheel-wells that come out (somewhat hit-or-miss as to ease of removal) - with the panel out, you can easily get at the bulbs.
Dunno about the whole headlight.[:I]

I replace my headlight less than a month ago. Look on the search on this site I got some good instructions. It took about 2 hours a light. You have to remove the front tire. as well as the grill and losen up some other things. It's doable. I don't know the kind of light your talking about, I bought replacement lights from EBay. Hope this helps, like I said do a search on this site for more info.[8D]

I know you have a front end kit of some sort on your PT so it's kind of hard to tell you the best way to get to the headlights. You are coming down to the Riverfront Ramble on Saturday, right? If so, I can show you better than try to write it here.
