How do i change the headlight Bulb

I have a 2005 acura TL Passenger side head light bulb is out, Should'nt say out, When i turn the lights on they both come on, If i turn them off and then turn them right back on only the drivers side will come, If i leave them off for about 20 minutes and turn them back on they both work??

Do i have a bad bulb or could it be more than that? If it is a bad bulb should replace both driver and passenger side?

Last but not least, How in the hell do you replace the low beam bulb???

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

i could possibly be the hid control unit and not just the bulb. i would be better to take the car to the dealer to have it looked at since replacing the unit requires removing the bumber and headlight assembly.

on the back of the headlight housing there is a round cover that covers the bulb and the ignitor. Remove the small torx screw from the cover and twist the cover off. Then twist off the ignitor and remove the sprind clip holding in the bulb. I can remember offthe top of my head if you can access all of that with out taking off the bumper and headlight....
