An example... Stephanie Collins,

(because VAGUE GENERALITIES can only be
offered without your year, make & model)...

NORMALLY I would suggest:
Taking your (yet to be disclosed) year, make & model
and go onto the INTERNET... Forums & chat groups...

Whoever you are COMFORTABLE sharing your
super secret year, make & model...
(obviously not FIXYA)

Sooo... Go to the DEALER FIRST...

I personally you should go to PARTSGEEK...
to find your part.... or autozone...

and try to muscle your way through their nonsense...

Rockauto, AMAZON & eBay are way to easy
and simple... (in my personal opinion)...

Then again...
If the car is a 1967 Austin Healey (BJ8) MK III, 3000...
I might suggest some entirely different PART sources...
>> ((in your search for a "TRAFFICATOR")).

RARE... BUT AVAILABLE:
"Control head assembly"

See... amazing what can be found with the
YEAR, MAKE and MODEL... (savvy... Stephanie Collins?)

SOURCE: 1998 Cavalier rear turn signal doesn't work

The turn signal switches are known to go bad, try to use the turn signal switch and jiggle the lever after clicking to the left turn. Replace signal switch assembly.

How do i replace a right turn signal light in a 2012 chrysler 200


Open the hood and reach behind the headlight cluster. Turn the signal holder counter clockwise to remove it.
Pull the bulb out (think they are the wedge type), and replace new one (using paper towel to avoid getting any any grease/oil from your hand on it), you should hera it click in.
Now put the signal holder back in turning it clockwise.
If doing the other side, the fliter housing has to removed in order to get to the bulbs.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • 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.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    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.

    99 silhouette.all bulbs are in working order.right (not left) signal flashes fast when headlights are on and even worse when brakes depressed(lights on or off).also lights on both rears are real strange on...


    I had similar symptoms - rapid flashing of directional when headlights on and brake depressed when making a left turn, both directional indicators in dash light dimly when brake depressed, "Check Traction Control System" indicator On even with ATC turned Off and "strange" indications in tail lights.

    Check the pins in the connector at the Lamp Holder Assembly for your Rt. Tail Light for arcing and corrosion. (The female pin is in the vehicle harness connector and the male is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly.) If found, because the male connector is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly, you'll have to replace the Lamp Holder Assembly and the harness section coming in from the vehicle containing the female connector.

    I just repaired this problem in the left tail light on my '01 van with a part from a '99 van I found at a local salvage yard.

    Left turn signal flashes faster than the right turn signal. how do i remove the bulb?


    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

    Rear brake light problem


    The tail light housing bulb holders are notorious for not making good contact to the tail light housing. Remove the housing, and disconnect the electrical connector. Label each bulb holder prior to removal, with a marker pen. 1, 2, 3, upper, middle, lower, etc. Remove each bulb holder, by turning counter clockwise 1/2 turn, and withdraw holder. Inspect each contact. You can bend the contacts outward a tiny bit, just flex it a tiny bit, and check with an ohmmeter for contact. Also inspect the bulb holders for melting from bulb heat, so much so that the plastic holder, which contains the bulb contacts, no longer make proper contact to the bulb. Also check the bulbs with an ohmmeter to verify that the bulbs are good. When reinstalling the bulb holders, check that the little flanges on the holders are properly inserted into the tail light housing. Reconnect electrical connector, and reinstall housing into vehicle. On a further note, with the electrical connector disconnected from the housing, you can check for voltages from the connector pins to ground, using a voltmeter. Turn ignition switch to run position, turn on headlight, and turn on blinker, or use stick to push brake pedal, against front of seat, and verify voltage from pins to vehicle frame (or connector ground pin). If no voltage, then check fuses, or broken wiring. My experience, however, is poor connection from bulb holders to tail light housing.
