I just changed both bulbs in my 1998 Grand Cherokee. These solutions made it possible, but i will offer some clarification and photos. First of all, all 4 screws are torx T20 as emoesmoe mentions, none are phillips. there are two bulbs that blink: the larger amber bulb is the turn signal light--dealer was cheaper than autozone and only had to purchase one bulb; the other bulb is called a side marker and it also blinks with a turn but stays on with the headlights. see photos that go along with the first two solutions. the first photo shows step one the first screw to take out. second and third photo are step two removing the second screw. the last photo shows the exposed screws to the turn signal housing after the uper light houseing has been removed:

Nascar2fever is correct, this can be a pain in the quester job. These are Torques head screws T20. Sometimes an 1/8th inch allen wrench will work also. For the drivers side, remove the top screw for the outside upper signal first. It is inside the engine compartment near the fender wall. Then remove the other screw from the front of the vehicle. It is between the upper corner light and the lower light. You will need a flashlight to see in there. Once this screw is out, you can slip the top corner light out and have access to the two screws that hold in the front turn signal lamp. Remove these screws and the lamp will come out. I replaced the bulb with an 1156 NA (amber color).

Good luck

It can be a pain because the screws are hidden. first you must remove the parking lamp raise the hood. one screw is visible from the top looking down at the lens...the other is hidden on the bottom side....look between the park laml and the turnsignal housing..a long phillip scew driver can reach it. once you have that removed lookng straight down at the turnsignal assembly you should see 2 screws. remove them and roll the assembly out and away from the body...you should see the bulb holder

Turn signal bulb was working, now it isnt


its is not uncommon for the contacts in the sockets to become corroded or just expand to the point of where they do not contact the bulb,try to test the socket with a multimeter for voltage,if it has voltage then its most likely the contacts,which sometimes can be rebent,but replaceing the sockets is a better solution,and can be picked up at most stores or 4x4 shops and junk yards.

How to change front bulbs for turn signal for 1997 Grand Jeep Cherokee


You will need a star screw driver and a phillips screw driver. First locate the screw on the outside between the turn signal lens and the side marker lens, looken that screw. Next, with the hood open, locate a metal piece coming from the turn signal body. That metal piece (about an 1 1/2 inch long) has a star screw. Unscrew it. Pull the turn signal body off its place. Grab the connector with your right hand (thumb and index finger), turn it counter clock wise, about one centimeter. When you feel it loose, just pul gently the connector and it should come out withe the bulb. Replace the bulb and put the conecto back turning it clock wise. Reassemble all again. That should take care of it.

Driver front turn signal does not blink. front


This may have more then one bulb in the front or possibly a bad socket try wiggling the new bulb in the socket to see if it will work.Compare all turn signal lights that come on the passenger side to those drivers side.Some vehicles also incorporate sidemarker lights with the turn signals.

How to change front driver side turn signal bulb in a 98 Lexus es 300.


This may be right.I got this third hand.. works on later models. Above the area of the turn signal there will be a piece of black plastic that extends from the left side of the front of the car to the right. In this case if its the driver side pull up the plastic tab holding down the plastic strip in front of the battery directly above the headlight and lift it up. This will expose a screw that retains the front signal/driving light housing. Remove screw and carefully slide housing forward. Once out remove bulb and replace. This should only take 5 minutes, works on either side

Turn signal light staying on in front driver side and back turn signal light blinking too fast on driver side in back. All bulbs good.


Double check your front drivers side bulb sounds to me like the bulb is bad. It may look ok but could be bad. You might try swapping bulbs between the right and left front lights to test it. If the problem moves to the other side then you've found your problem. Good luck.
