Electrical problem
2003 Cadillac CTS V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

My right front blinker and running light is burnt out. How can I access the bulb without dismantling half the front end?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello and thanks for the donation!

You will need to first remove the headlamp assembly to gain access to the signal lamp bulb cover. To remove the headlamp, you WILL have to remove the entire front fascia from the front fender to do this repair. Would you like the entire steps on do this?
