DRIVERS SIDE HEADLIGHT SHIELD BROKEN

2011 Nissan Altima • 37,000 miles

My 2011 Altima has a broken drivers-side headlight I have to replce the whole assembly. I bought one online but I can't figure out how to replace it. Could you give me some suggestions on how to do it myself or to get the work done as cheaply as possible? Thanks.
