Yes you do. You have to take the whole assembly off the truck to fix the problem. I tried wesbingham3's way and it was a dead-end. I then had to call a Dodge dealer and they told me that you had to take the whole assembly off the truck which turns out easier than it seems. All you have to do is remove the two bolts that are by the radiator and pull the assembly straight off the truck. It helps when pulling it off if you already have the headlight out of the assembly (which can be removed from atop of the assembly). Once you get the assembly off the truck then all you have to do is change the bulb and replace the assembly. Once I figured it out it only took me 5 minutes.

Re: changing front turn signal 2006 dodge truck
No. You can reach in from the bottom of the truck and give the light about 1/4 of a twist and it will come out of the housing. Then you can disconnect it from the wire harness where you can see it.

Front or rear? If its the rear light, you should check inside your trunk. Move any liner that may be over the light housings, and look for fasteners, usually plastic wing nut types, that you can remove and lift out the whole tail light assembly. Once out, you can change the individual bulbs.
If it's the front turn signal, I think that's part of the headlight assembly, and you may have to remove the whole assembly to get at the bulbs. Look for screws in the top cross member, and in the panel next to the radiator to remove the assembly.
You guys are all very close but check this, on the Patriot you can't take the lens or housing out from the front. It has to be removed from the back. And in saying that, you don't have to remove the housing at all. The steps are as follows, #1) Remove the inner fender well cover. It's the black plastic covering that hides all the wiring and the engine compartment. There are 7 push screw retainers to remove and 3 philips screws. #2) Once the cover is removed, all you need do is reach your hand in behind the turn signal and twist the bulb and it's socket to the left to remove from the housing. #3) Now that you have the light and socket out, you are just left with pulling out the red clip on the socket and pinching the black tab while you pull out the bulb. It's just that simple. Now if your housing is cracked or blemished and you have to completely remove it, then you will need to remove 3 torx bit screws that attach it to the front fender. They go in from the back of the housing. And yes, they are T20's. I don't necessarily call this dismantling the whole front end. But it's not a 5 mins job either.

It depends on if its the front or the rear bulb. In the front the screws are mostly on the out side of the car. The baco screwa ar in side the trunk inside of the truck liner. You have to remove the hole light fixture from the car and then turn the bulb holder out to change the bulb
This is for the 95-97 Contour. 98+ are different, because the light housing changed completely. 1. Open the hood. 2. In each front corner of the hood, there is a torx bolt, head about the size of a nickel. Removing this one bolt allows you to remove the corner marker/turn signal housing. 3. Once the housing is free, you have access to the back of the bulb holder. If I recall correctly, it's a half-twist to remove, but I'm not sure. Could just be barbed clips, or something. Anyway, from here should be no problem to figure out how to remove and replace the bulb. 4. Replace corner marker/turn signal housing, and re-install torx bolt. That's it!
Open the trunk, behind the light you will see a plastic wing nut, remove it.
Then pull the carpeted trunk liner away and you will find 2 more plastic wing nuts. remove both of them and the wireing harness. the lamp will now com off the back of the car. twist the bulb base out and replace with new bulb.

For Front turning signal, you need to remove the whole head light system to get to turn signal. 4 screws attach it to the car's body. Make sure to remove the lamps first and disconnect the switch for the turn signal lamp. Just replaced it last week myself.
