It is very easy just be careful small parts.
I would HIGHLY recommend doing it on a solid surface such as cement or a big piece of wood or even spread a tarp because you lose those screws or the metal plate...

4 screws hold this steel plate through which the bulb goes, I am thinking you'll have to remove one or two orange covers.
Remove the screws, replace bulb, re-install.

Not even close!
The BR 600 has a remote "primer" bulb which is a pain to get to.
Ya gotta remove the starter, and the shroud. If yer lucky you can depress the tabs on the bulb base with a small screwdriver and pop it out. Pay close attention to which hose goes where. It helps to have the new one on hand.
Have fun!

BigFish is correct, remove the starter, then the shroud and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PRIMER BULB, they have two- one has a white backing and one has a black backing. See which one you have. Its really not that hard to do, I just did it this past weekend. Also like BigFish said make sure you get the hoses on the right sides of the primer bulb.
