no, no need to remove the headlight. you just pop the cover on top, turn the ignitor to the right (the wire connected to it should release on it's own), take that out, then turn the black bulb holder to the right (if you're look at the car from the front), and pull the bulb out. then reverse. be careful not to break the ceramic tube that runs along side the glass tube.

if you still need a DIY, just send me a PM, and i'll be glad to make a quick one for you or make a video of me doing it.
