Actually the first answer was right.  On my 2007 Sprinter chassis, the side mirrors have an upper flat mirror and a lower convex mirror.  The upper mirror comes off exactly as described; by tilting it so that it faces down, and then gently lifting it from the top to slide it off the track. (On my sprinter the mirrors are heated, so there are wires that remain attached when you slide it off. This reveals three screws that you can get at with a torex screw driver without needing any flexible shafts etc.  It appears that there is a fourth screw or clip of some sort on the bottom, but I was not able to figure out how to get the bottom convex mirror off to get at it.  That would enable the removal of the full shell. Even without that bottom screw I was able to flex the shell enough to get the turn signal lens assembly out.  But removing it entirely requires reaching in with needle nosed pliers and rotating the bulb assembly a quarter turn, and then reversing the whole assembly to get it back.  In my case I was replacing the turn signal lens, but it should work the same for replacing the bulb. Good luck.

Push the bottom of the mirror in, so the mirror points down, gently grab the mirror from the top and slide up (it is on a track) then you can access the light fixture.

I wouldn't call this a proper solution but it will work until I find a better one,  I ran he power mirror to the inboard limit and looked through the gap between the mirror surface and the mirror outer shell, with a flashlight.  I found two torx head screws that secure the mirrors outer shell to the rest of the assembly.  The mirror surface blocks any torx screwdriver from aligning straight with the screw head but I was able to use a 1/4" drive ratchet, 6" extension, swivel attachment and torx head socket to remove the screws.  Tip - wrap the swivel joint with a bit of electrical tape to stiffen it and keep it from flopping around too much.  The outer shell would not come all the way off when the screws were out but I was able to pry it away enough to remove the clear turn signal lens and access the bulb and socket.  The small wire connector is then removed by depressing the catch on the connector end with a needle nose pliers and wiggling the connector free.  now you have the lens assembly free of the truck and a quarter turn counter-clockwise of the socket assembly will remove it from the lens.  I was only able to find the bulb at the dealer as a bulb/socket assembly, for about seven-teen dollars. Reinstall the unit by reversing the removal steps and it should work good as new.  Tip - the two torx head screws that secure the mirrors outer shell are not magnetic.  To start them you either have to replace them with philips head magnetic screws and use a screw starter or as I did wrap a small bit of clear packing tape around the torx screw and the 1/4" drive torx socket. The tape kept the screw from falling off until I had it started by a few turns.

SOURCE: how to change front driver side turn signal 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.

SOURCE: Can't figure out how to change the bulb for turn signal on Jeep

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

SOURCE: how do I change the rear signal bulb on 2005 Dodge Caravan

There are some expandable black plugs (about 1" diameter) that hold the taillight assembly to the body. You can access them by raising the hatch, and gently pry them both out.
*
The assembly will swing out and drop if you don't hold it up...hold it firmly and observe how the front part of it is held in by the plastic guide.
*
The bulb is easy to pull and replace. I avoid touching any bulb with your fingers to avoid leaving oil deposits. I would have a friend test the brakes and the signal (with the ignition on), after the bulb is installed, but before you replace the assembly.
*
When the assembly is aligned back in place, you can push the re-usable plugs back into the hole, and they should expand to secure the taillight.

If this helps, please rate my answer. If not, I still appreciate constructive comments, too.

SOURCE: change mirror turn signal light in ford 2001

You will need to remove the glass to get to it.

Muth Co signal mirrors have some good directions for getting the door panel off, and removing the glass, available for download on their site.

I prefer to do this with the mirror head off the truck, but you might feel other wise on this part.

Once you have the glass from the mirror removed you will see where the bulb is inserted from the back ( inside ) of the mirror head.

How do I replace the turn signal light on the drivers side view mirror?


If the signal flashes on the outside of the glass, then the yellow lens will pop off the mirror assembly using a small screwdriver etc for bulb access. If the signal flashes inside the mirror assembly, the mirror will need replacement or there is a wiring issue

2001 side mirror turn signals do not work. Fuse


If the turn signals on the truck work correctly, this would be a bulb issue.

The best directions I have found with pictures are from Muth ( mfgr of signal mirrors ) : www.kwmuth.com
Enter truck info, and on the product listing page are the install directions for download in PDF format. Download, and use the directions to the glass removal. Once the glass is out, you will see the bulb holder for the signal on the edge of the glamor cap, think this is a bulb type 39 ( ??)
Have seen some people just move the glass all the way in ( so the gap is at the signal side of the mirror head ), and work it this way, I have not done this myself.

2006 pt cruiser on drivers side rear turn signal


The turn signals flash depends on each and every bulb working correctly. When one bulb fails, you will notice a change in the flash frequency, as you describe.

Replace or repair the bulb that is not working, and you should be good to go.
