Hi,
I'm not sure I picked the right catagory, but here's my question. Our right signal light in the front went out and we're trying to figure out how to replace the bulb. Any help will do. The repair shops want an arm and leg to do it.
Thanks.

It is a great design. Basically, you need to remove the front fascia, or at least pull it away enough for access. On the upper portion, there are upwards of 6-8 push pin retainers that hold the grille to the core support. Down below, you need to remove the right and left corner extensions(splash shield). At ech side where the fender meets the fasia, there is a bolt, and a nut on a stud. Remove the bolt, loosen the nut and tap upward. The fascia wings can now be slid forward to disengage the studs. From here, the upper portion can be pulled away enough to remove the screws that secure the lamp assembly to the fascia. Then separate the back half of the lamp assembly from the front half with the 6 t-10 screws, and replace the amber bulb. It is adviseable due to the complexity, to replace both bulbs. Murphy will make sure that the other one will fail shortly after you get it together, if you don't.

We would like to thank you for answering so quickly. We can now see why these things are so hard to replace, by the average owner. It used to be that everything could be replaced or worked on in ones own garage, but these newer vehicles are so complex, you can't even change your own oil or replace a light. We thank you so much for your time in answering this question and hope we'll be able to follow your instructions.
