Headlight bulb replacement

Are there any tricks to replacing headlamp bulbs? I can't get my hands in there. Do I remove the batteries and go from the backside or do the headlight assemblies come out easily? '03 F250 if it matters.
Thanks

There is a plastic round coller on the back of the headlights that holds the bulbs in. Twist them and they will pull off and the bulbs pull right out.

Squeeze your hand in there. You can do it. I just did. Put your hand in where there is room then move over to where the bulb is. Your hand will get scratched, but youre a man right?

It wouldn't a normal job without scratched hands and busted knuckles. I'll give it whirl tomorrow morning.
