I am trying to replace a turn signal bulb on the front passenger side. My question is how do I remove the housing without breaking it to replace the turning signal bulb located in the inside of the lights housing? Your response will be greatly appreciated and I will have more question and donation in the future with repair question because I just receive some tools. Thanks
Do you
have the same problem?
