I found and remove the front turn signal bulb holder, but could not figure out how to remove the bulb to replace it. It would not twist out or pull free. I ended up breaking the old bulb in the process.

Only way you will get it out now is to use a pair of needle nosed pliers and some wd40 or other solvent. Grab the brass part of the bulb and twist it. It will collapse towards the center and get smaller as you do this. Sometimes it takes a bit of "destruction" to get it out.
Make sure you clean as much rust from the inside of the socket before replacing bulb. I usually wipe some grease on new bulb base to prevent this sort of thing. If socket is badly damaged and can't be re-used, you can buy a new one from most parts outlets and just cut the wires and connect. (get the wires on right or it won't work correctly!)
Good luck!

1995 Cutlass cierra Left turn signal works right goes on solid no blink

Usually it is a bulb because it takes all 3 or 4 to make the flasher work. Not all bulbs have to work for the emergency flasher.
If all of the bulbs are in fact good, it could be the turn signal switch.
On rare occasions the flasher is the problem

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6

  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    How do you replace aheadlight light bulb ina olds

    Remove plastic Grill (6 screws)
    Remove Turn Signal Light (3 Screws)
    This allows you to access the 4 screws that hold in the Headlight. Remove these and then remove the headlight. Once out, then just turn the bulb and remove. Be careful with the plastic clip that holds the bulb to the wiring harness. Since the car is old, the plastic will easily break.

    How do I change out headlight bulb on 91 olds cutlass cierra

    Behind the headlight, you should see the nylon bulb holder. Turn it counter clockwise, about a 1/4 turn, and it should come out. Pull the old bulb straight out, and replace it with the new one. Don't touch the glass part of the new bulb with bare fingers, or you'll be replacing it again. Use cotton gloves or a paper towel. Put the holder back in the headlight, turn it clockwise until it locks.
