I was able to reach in and get it out... it's tight but possible. I think it's the SBC unit that is mostly in the way.

yup, it's tight.... but the alternative is crazy... almost have to take the entire front apart to remove the light assembly.

I checked the WIS first - they want you to take off the front bumper! Then I tried. Put hand under the 2 small coolant overflow hoses, wiggle past the SBC, get arm in there to the top right corner of headlight assembly to reach the very conventional twist off bulb holder. On way out I picked it up off my rubber gloved palm as there is not enough room for a closed fist full of bulb. Done.

The Bi-Xenon headlight can be dangerous so the WIS procedure avoids it for safety. I find that often when I check WIS first. Safety first. I used a rubber glove for some protection and job took 5 minutes.
