On my 1996 Explorer V8 ~18k miles, there are some "flaps" on each side
(and just foward) of the radiator that you can accesss you headlight
bulbs. Lift the hood, lift the flaps, twist the bulb holder and
replace the bulb. Don't touch the new bulb with you hands.
The only time I have ever been stopped by a cop in my Explorer was
when it have ~500 miles on it and a cop stopped me for a burned out
headlight. That has been the only headlight that I have had to
replace. I carry a spare in my jack compartment. You should be able
to get these bulbs at your local auto parts store.
