Yes.... You gotta remove the air intake piece. It's plastic so it's very simple to do. Instead of a generic answer such as a website and search, here's the direct LINK where to go with the full step by step guidance on how to do this. Its a PDF document with pictures. Be prepared, though, as it's very limited space you'll be working in. Http:// That link is what's mentioned here: Just know that if you're ever gonna change fog lights (if your car is equipped with them) it's a whole new ball game... LoL (we had to remove the full lower bumper to get to them) Let me know if the address doesn't work and I'll guide you to another. Hope this helps.

Passenger side front blinker dim and blinks fast

I would change out the dim bulb. usually blinkers blink when you have a bulb out either in the back or front blinker.if both are good then I would replace the flasher.

My front passenger side blinker won't work. The rear one works fine. The dash indicator flashes really quick now too.

usually this is because of a blown bulb, replace the front passenger bulb and tell me if it helps.

The left front blinker is out on my 1984 VW Rabbit Convertible (German Made.)  I replaced the bulb, still not working. I need to know which fuse to replace.

If the other blinker works it is not the fuse something is wrong with the socket for the blinker or a poor ground look at the filiment on the bulb I have had brand new bulbs blow out immediately after changing.

My blinker on the front on the passenger side is not working and the rear blinker is rapidly blinking, what causes that?

If you replace the front bulbs and it still does it, it means that you have bad blinker wires. the 99 has a TERRIBLE wiring design for the signals so if you can replace the whole thing, you will be better off then replacing bulbs every 5 seconds. I have yet to do it on mine but that is what is causing mine to do the same thing.
