Question What is the best way to change out a front parking light?

That little amber light in the corner of the front headlight housing went out on me, passenger side. I popped the hood and I can see what looks like the light but there is no way in hell I can get my hand in there to do anything. Has anybody had one of these go out before? Do you have to take the whole headlight out to get to it?

Were you just replacing or changing color? Someone on here said that they changed their parking lights into red...
