How do I get access to the bulb?

You have to remove the entire assembly. Here is how you do it. From the right side, using a small screwdriver you have to push two retaining clips back to release the assembly. While holding the clips in the released position pull the right edge out from the car body. It will then pivot around the left edge. Do not pull from the left edge. It only pivots on the left side.

Attached is an image of the right side of the assembly.

Open the reflector and change the bulb.

Thanks Dave, that was excellent. Actually, I want to get to the cabin temp sensor.
