You can replace the bulbs wihout removing anything. The passenger side is super easy. The driver side is tougher because there isn't much room to stuff your hands, but it can be done. If you must pull the battery, make sure you have your radio security code on hand because you will need it after hooking the battery back up. I'd suggest not removing the battery and just taking your time to get the driver side bulb replaced.

Have you tried replacing the flasher? You'd think neither side would blink if the flasher was bad but I've seen this happen and it turned out to be the flasher. You could swap the signal flasher with the 4 way flasher to verify that's the problem before going out and buying one. Should be a few bucks at the parts store.

Resolved! I finally just put the bulb in the palm of my hand and put my fingers on the plastic socket (which I had given the quarter turn to release from the housing) and gave it some good firm pressure and it snapped/locked into place.

Testimonial: "Thank you for quick response"
No, you don't have to remove the front bumper. The headlight bulb is in a tight spot so you will need someone with small hands to reach it. Pull the rubber boot with the connector off
and there is a spring clip that holds the bulb in place, remove the clip and pull the bulb out
The connector inside the boot does not engage much on the terminals of the bulb. Click on the link below to read more:

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.
