Do not attempt to remove the housing. Attack from the underside. Turn the wheel so that it points out. Pull back the thin black covering in the wheelwell part way. This is done by starting at the front of the car and part way up the wheelwell. You will need to remove two screws and one black snap button. (If the button breaks, you can get them at the dealership for pennies.) You should now have access to the bulb socket. Entire process should take approximately 10 minutes.

Change front turn signal


The side marker light must be removed in order to get at the turn signal light.
There are two screws holding the side marker light which is situated above the turn signal.
Open the hood.
Remove the phillips head screw at the top of the side marker light.
Using a long #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw on the outside of the side marker light. This can be seen by looking between the lower side of the side marker light and the top side of the turn signal.
The side marker can be moved.
The turn signal has one screw on the top of the fixture that must be removed.
Slide out the turn signal fixture. There is a small feature on the lower front corner of the turn signal fixture that you must note to properly reinstall the turn signal.
In order to get to the bulb, rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn CW or CCW. The bulb socket is loose.
The bulb is simply pressed into the socket.
Not sure of the type, but it can be found at your locale auto parts store.
The bulb is used in several places on the 1994 GC, so get apacket with two, if possible.
Assembly in reverse. Be careful not to overtighten the screws as they are replaced.

  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    2003 ford focus zx3 How to replace rt front marker bulb ???


    the inner fender will provide a way. I would simply take it to a store and ask them nicely if they will do the install - -many times they will do it and at no charge. - if you must - -carefully pull away the inner fender from under the car - and look for the back of the marker -

    DO NOT PRY on the plastic or you will break it and still not be able to change out the bulb.

    There are two ways to change this light:


    One method is to get at it through the wheel well. You'll have to remove the plastic guard inside the wheel well. Then reach up and pinch the spring in and pop it out. You may have to take the wheel off to get more room and to see up easier



    Another method is to take a thin flat blade screwdriver, wrap the blade in electrical tape or masking tape and to gently slide in behind the side marker on the same side as the mirror. The side marker has a spring-like clip on one side and two tabs on the other. This method is faster, but has a change of scratching your paint or breaking the tabs on the side marker
