Replace front right turn signal bulb

2005 STS; passenger side front turn signal bulb is burnt out. Any suggestions on how to access the bulb. I see one screw in the lens, and 3 in the overhang above it. Before I start taking things apart thought I might get some advice here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Of course the mechanic want $75 to do this.

You will hear a lot of people telling you to take bumper off take off the tire, jack it up and saw your arm off when it falls... While that sounds fun I just did it my way. With the turn signal all you have to do is take off the trim piece in front of the wheel well. Make sure you have enough room to get one or both arms in there. Once you get to that point, you will see two black caps. These are just covers top one is turn bottom is fog. Mine was pretty locked on so i popped it off with a screwdriver. Put the new bulb in and wrap it up.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

My left turn signal goes too fast when i want to make a left turn but my right turn signal is fine... how do i make the left one normal again?


Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.

Front passenger side turn signal blub only last about 3 months before going out.what could be the problem


Are you sure you replaced it with the correct bulb?also look at the connector and see if it looks burnt.If it does then replace it and when you replace the bulb add die electric grease to the contacts.This will keep the heat down.Good luck and I hope this helps.

2004 CTS Cadillac front passenger turn signal bulb is out.


Actually no you don't. Crank your steering wheel all the way to the right so yo have the maxumum clearance for your hands and arms in the front of the wheel well. Remove the plastic clips that hold the wheel well splash guard and pull it back enough to allow access to the interior of your bumper.
Replace bulbs as needed.
Yes, a jack is nice and makes it a touch easier to access, but I did this in an AutoZone parking lot during a cross country road trip.
5 mins tops to complete.
