At a guess, I would say 2 ideas. There is a panel inside the rear corner remove the panels to access the units OR, you may have to undo the rear light screws and gain access by removing the tail light lens. Hope this helps, Good luck

SOURCE: need to replace rear turn signal bulb 2002 thunderbird

I just did it last week. You have to remove the 2 nuts( in the trunk) that hold the tail light assembly to the car . One bolt is long and is against the inside fender, the other is easier to get at. Once the nuts are removed yank at the tail light ***'y from the out side and pull it loose( it may stick a little because of the rubber seal. . The light bulb then is removed from the ***'y by twisting, a locking bulb holder. You can get the bulbs at Wal-mart. They are sold in 2 packs. Len Florida

There is a plastic cover on the lens that covers the screws that hold the lamp on to the body. CAREFULLY pry the cover off to access screws, remove the screws and CAREFULLY pry the lens off. Replace bulb(s) reinstall after checking to see if bulbs are in fact working.

This is straight from the owner's manual.

#1 Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position and open the trunk.
#2 Carefully pull the carpet away to expose the backside of the tail lamp assembly.
#3 Remove the nut and washer assemblies, then pull the lamp assembly away from the vehicle.
#4 Remove the bulb socket by rotating it counterclockwise, then pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
#5 Pull the bulb straight from the socket.

Install new bulb(s) in reverse order.
Good luck

2008 Cadillac SRX Why do right turn signals flash much faster than left? All bulbs are illuminated.


The turn signals on your vehicle are computer controlled by the BCM - body control module . The first place to start would be to hook up a scan tool that can access BCM DTC'S an data Parameters. If all the turn signal bulb's are good .
Turn Signal Lamps
Ground is applied at all times at G201 to the turn signal/multifunction switch. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON or START position. When the turn signal/multifunction switch is placed in either the TURN RIGHT or TURN LEFT position, ground is applied to the body control module (BCM) through either the right turn or left turn signal switch circuit. Battery voltage is applied at all times to the BCM. The BCM then applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps. Ground for the front turn signal lamps is supplied at G104. The left rear turn signal lamp is supplied ground at G402 and the right rear turn signal lamp is supplied ground at G401.
High resistance some where in the turn signal circuit could also cause this type problem . Doing voltage drop testing on the circuit would find a problem of high resistance .

How do you replacw a rear turnsignal bulb?


Open the trunk, pull back the carpet on the rear wall of the trunk behind the tail lights. If there is access to the bulb sockets, figure out which one lines up with the turn signal and turn it counter clockwise about a quarter turn then pull it out. the bulb will either pull straight out or turn quarter turn and pull out.

If there isn't access to the bulb sockets then there will be three or four nuts or wing nuts that hold the tail lamp assembly in. Remove them and the lens. Then remove the bulb from the tail lamp lens assembly.
