Some of these are accessible through the trunk. There may be a piece of plastic or fabric behind the tail light assembly that can be emoved. Then usually the bulb and cable pugged into it are turned counter clockwise about a 1/2 turn to remove them.
Open the trunk, pull back the carpet on the rear wall of the trunk behind the tail lights. If there is access to the bulb sockets, figure out which one lines up with the turn signal and turn it counter clockwise about a quarter turn then pull it out. the bulb will either pull straight out or turn quarter turn and pull out.
If there isn't access to the bulb sockets then there will be three or four nuts or wing nuts that hold the tail lamp assembly in. Remove them and the lens. Then remove the bulb from the tail lamp lens assembly.
The procedure to replace the REAR turn signal light bulb is as follows:-
1) There are three wing nuts on the inside of the trunk for each tail light. 2) Remove the piece of plastic just inside the trunk where the latch is. 3)Then remove the two thumb screws that the cargo net is attached to and the piece can be pulled up. 4)Them pull the carpeting away from the area where the tail light is located.5)properly remove the three thumb screws. 6) Keep the bulb handy so you can fit the new bulb as the old bulb is removed out.The procedure to replace the FRONT turn signal is as follows:--1) First remove the front headlight assembly.And the bulbs .2) Open the hood to remove the headlight assembly.3) Pull the headlamp assembly straight out from the vehicle (moving the headlamp up and down slightly may help to remove it easily).4) Front turn signal is located below the headlamp assembly (turn/parking lamp on top and the fog lamp is below it).5) Then turn the bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise to remove it from assembly.6)Then pull the old bulb from the socket and replace it with a new one.Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
