Replacing the bulb on headlights.

Does anyone have any experience in replacing the headlight bulb themselves? Is this complicated that I need to go to the dealer or is it fairly easy to do? Thanks.

Hi. Thanks for the replies. But I'm actually looking got the low beam headlight, which is the big one with a ball in the socket. I checked the manual before and saying that the only ones I can replace are the parking lights and high beams. Others, I should call the dealer, which I assume will be very expensive. One forum I saw said the dealer was charging $170 per bulb plus install. So if I can do this myself, that would be great. Thanks again.
