To replace the the turn signal and headlamp bulbs, you need to pull the lights out from the front

to do so first you'll have to remove the plastic cover that spans over the radiator (there should be 6 push-in plastic clips holding it in, I use a wire crimping tool, but a couple flat screwdrivers or pliers if careful can work as well)

now, if it's just the cornering lamp that you need, then a large screwdriver or small pry-bar can be used to pop the lamp out

To see where to pry it helps to have a flashlight and look between the headlamp and cornering lamp, there's a clip that holds it in place, just pry against the clip [towards the center of the car, be firm as it is stiff, but if you just yank it, it may brake as it's plastic]

The clip should be around (though below) where the tip of the fender ends. The corner lamp should just pop out with enough prying

For future reference, replacing the headlamp bulbs you get to this point then remove the 2 bolts you can see the brackets the headlamps are mounted to, and they should then come out

Where do I find fuse for turn signal for a 2005 chevy cavalier


For 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L SFI DOHC 4cyl, check in the passenger fuse panel the label TURN-B/U (Turn Signal & Back-Up lights)...

Also, you can find this and other details in your 2005-Chevrolet-Cavalier-Owners-Manual (page 295).

Other possibility to check is... the FLASHER, sits above the gas pedal behind a small, black panel. The panel is held on with one star bolt and is situated between the gas panel arm and the bottom of the plastic molding that sits below the steering column. the flasher should be be green and clipped to a small, cube shaped harness and attached to the inside wall by two plastic clips. You will need to use a very small flat head to pry the two pieces apart. After removing the part you can verify that you have the correct replacement by comparing units, often times without opening the packaging on the replacement. Secondly you can verify that you did remove the flasher by putting your keys in the ignition, turning the on and then using your turn signals or hazards. This work for an 2001 Cavalier models, try it.

Hope help with this (remember rated this post).

How do I replace the right front turn signal bulb on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier?


Remove the splash shield that fits across the top (under the hood). You need to carefully pry the six bolt-style plastic clips off that hold it.
The signal lamp assembly is removed by releasing a clip which is located between the headlamp assembly and signal lamp assembly. There is a slot in the top to insert a screwdriver. Push down on the clip and the signal assembly should slide right out.

My 2001 chevy cavalier back right turn signal bulb burns out every two weeks. Is there any service recall on 2001 chevy cavalier? How would do look for the problem?


Im not aware of that specific recall if any. You can go on the GM website and search for it.

Have you replaced the fuses recently? sounds like too much amperage is getting to the bulbs causing it to over heat and then burn out over those 2 weeks. Check the voltage at the outlet, and check to make sure the proper rated fuse is installed.

If new bulbs don't work, it is probably the harness that holds the bulb. I had to replace both on my car after fighting with the problem for over a year and not knowing.

I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
