Headlight driver side bulb burnt out. Replaced both sides so they would match. Done by self with help from experienced neighbor. This job is extremely difficult even for experienced neighbor. Access limited, and the way the covers are attached are really odd. Youtube video helped. As soon as both headlight bulbs were replaced, the driver's side front running light burnt out. Strange coincidence. That bulb replacement took under 10 minutes once I got back from the parts store.
