Yes it can and 2 hours labor is a rip off.

yeah, low beams are a cinch...high beams are a little more of a PITA, especially if you have big hands...I've got so much stuff under and around the pockets (cellset, audio filters, power connectors, lighting wires, etc) that I find it easier to just pull the shelter to get to the high beam bulbs...also, some people remove just the pockets to do the low beam bulbs, mostly so they can see what they are doing better...

I saw this and copied and pasted when the time comes on my '03 1800.
