Re: changing the blinker light
You probably don't have to remove the lense. You remove the bulb from the inside of the engine compartment or trunk. you remove a plug by turning it counterclockwise and pressing in at the same time.the plug comes off with the lightbulb in it.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

change the bulb sometimes one of the filaments where out they are combo bulbs usually 1157 1156 bulbs back stop and tail combo bulbs, or check owners manual, this is depending on your type of vehicle but thats probably it.
My first thought: burned out bulb. With the car in "run" position(doesnt need to be running) and parked, switch on the blinker and get out and look to see which light is on, and which is not. If somehow both blinker lights come on, then your issue is with a burned out blinker relay which is typically found up, under, the dash. These things are about 1-1/4 inches in diameter and about a 1-1/4 inches tall and will usually be found in or near the fuse panels.
If it's a bulb thats fried.... front end - check under the hood to see if blinker bulbs are accessible from there. If not from inside, you'll hafta remove the light covers/housings from the outside, usually requiring a philips or torx screwdriver of some sort. back end - these are likely accessible from the trunk, and hidden behind the carpeting, or something, that covers the rear light areas. If not directly accessible, then you'll hafta determine how to remove the bulb covers/housing to get at the dead bulb.
Do the basic, so this way you can eliminate the relay making sure is good and working. change the turn single relay it fairly cheap to replace. next if that don't work, you going to have to wait when the problems occur again by going around by removing the lense cover one at a time; wiggle thee bulb around or remove it from the socket and put it back in one at a time to see which one is not having a good ground; check and see from your if it blink from your adjustment. you will have to check all the turn single bulbs one at a time by going around the car to each bulbs.
Your rear bulb is burnt out if you say the front one is working .. the speed up of flashing means your bulb is bad.. you might have to get in the trunk and unscrrew those hand wing nuts and push that tail light outward to get to the bulbs ... thanks Jerry and holler if you need more.
