The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out front turn signal or DRL light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will help create more working room in the wheel well.

Locate the rectangular shaped plastic access cover on the front part of the wheel well liner.

There are two black plastic screws securing the access panel in place.

Loosen the screws by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver.

If you have trouble removing the plastic screws, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry them out.
