Six cylinder two wheel drive automatic 40,000 miles.

Just wondering how to access to change out a burnt front turn signal light? I looked and trying to change from within the engine compartment gives no access to that light. Thanks in advance!

You can do this be undoing the fender liner and reaching up to remove the mounting bolts for the lens. Check out the diagram below.
