    I too have the same problem on my 2001 325i. I can see the tab it calls for you to move, but when I move it, nothing happens. I'm off to the dealership to get a lesson on removing the light... Tom

Hey,

you have to use a pretty long screw drive to gently push down on the release tab, slowly wiggle the lens assembly until it move forward a little... depending on how long its been since the last time it was changed, you might have to be a little more aggressive in your wiggling to get it to slid forward.

I just change my front turn signals from yellow to Euro white, looks freaking sweet as hell.

Well, I hope I helped... it would be a shame for you to waste money at the dealership for something like that.

Drive to Seattle and replace it for you... Lol

Good luck

How do I change the front drivers side parking light bulb?


Go on line to owners manual or look in owners manual.

Some just unplug from the back if you can get to it others you have to take the whole assembly out to get to the bulb the owners manual will tell you under lighting.

Do I need to remove the front bumper on my 1992 Cadillac Deville to chang parking light bulbs?


Kind of a silly question, removing a

How about getting under it before you came here
& reach up & turn the lamp socket & pull it out &
check the bulb/lamp

lamp housing.

6. Unhook the electrical connector by lifting up the
blue tabs and pulling the bulb out.

7. Install the new bulb through the black retainer ring
and into the electrical connector.

8. Tighten the black retainer ring in place. Push the
bulb firmly enough so that the blue tabs hook over
the tab on the bulb.

9. Carefully put the bulb assembly back into the lamp
housing. Be careful not to damage the bulb on the
headlamp aiming bar.


Same guide is here in the manual along with pictures.

Location of the fuse for the drivers side tail light


The tail lights are on a common fuse ( if you are talking parking lamps, they are also common with the front parking lamps ).

Owners manual page 240, cab fuse panel fuse #6.

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :
https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

If the driver's side rear parking lamps does not work, check the bulb.
