By "headlight corner light" I'm guessing you mean your parking lights?

If so, that and the map and dome bulb replacement are in your manual.

Parking lights you will need to take the headlight assemblies and change the bulbs.

Map Light.

Open Sunglass holder. Use finger to gently pull on map light lens. Should pop off will light pressure. It then pulls towards windshield. Thats it.

As for Headlights look for a post from BigE he has a video showing headlight removal.
