In my '04 Jaguar S-Type,I have the amber light warning that says "Front Right Turn Signal Failed," although it's not clear if the bulb burned out or if it's a wiring issue. If the latter, my Select Edition warranty will cover costs; if it's a bulb, it won't. In the latter case, I'd like to save money and change the bulb myself. Any hints on how to?

Could be a wiring problem, or the turn signal switch.
You could check the wiring with a meter, and also by using the emergency flashers. Those use a different circuit from the turn signals on most cars. If the light works using the 4-way flashers, the problem is probably the turn signal switch.
You need to know if the socket has power and ground when the lamp should be flashing.
this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first
Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.
the only one i could find that looks like the one you described (trouble light) is tire pressure. sorry i couldnt be more help. although a faster turn signal flash can sometimes be a burnt out bulb on the fast flashing side.
In the back of the low bulb unit, is a round cover, turn it to remove it, then you have access to the bulbs, you´ll need patience large and thin fingers. I suggest you to buy the bulb first and a good quality one, because you´ll need to work on this with a cold engine.
If the fuses are good and the front and rear bulbs are good, change the flasher for the turn signals, even tho the right is working. If that doesn't fix the problem, it might be in the turn sgnal switch on the steering column.
If both bulbs are good for the backup lights and fuses are good, then the backup light switch, which is screwed into the side of the transmission has to bad.
Dunno where you reside but our indoor/outdoor digital thermometer shows a snowflake once the temp drops down to 0C/32F.
It wouldn't surprise me to learn that a Jag would have a warning light for freezing temps.
