How do i remove the front marker assy to change the bulbs

Don't know what vehicle you have but if there arre no bolts/screws visible from the outside of your marker lense, then you should see clips on the inner fender wheel (may be covered in mud/dirt) that hold the lense in. You will probably not need to remove the assembly though, since most bulb sockets can be removed from the inner side (turn left - counter clockwise) to get to the bulb.

How to change side marker bulb in 1997 altima


The marker lights are removed by depressing the tab (arrow) with a thin bladed tool. Take care not to scratch the paint

  1. Disengage the bulb and socket assembly from the lens housing.
  2. Gently grasp the light bulb and pull it straight out of the socket.
To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Line up the base of the light bulb with the socket, then insert the light bulb into the socket until it is fully seated.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the socket and bulb assembly into the lens housing.

Both headlights went out at the same time on a 1997 ford explorer

first of all, answer this: Did you do some instalaltion before this happens? and then, check fuses and other connections of the headlights. If possible, take the bulbs out and test them with a direct line from the battery. If after the test the bulbs are on, then you have to check the cables and fuses. If the bulbs do not turn on in the test, then you have to buy extra bulbs to change the bad ones. EXTRA NOTE: It is really weird that both bulbs are burned... check other installations and cabling system.

How do you change the turning signal on ford contour sport?

This is for the 95-97 Contour. 98+ are different, because the light housing changed completely.
1. Open the hood.
2. In each front corner of the hood, there is a torx bolt, head about the size of a nickel. Removing this one bolt allows you to remove the corner marker/turn signal housing.
3. Once the housing is free, you have access to the back of the bulb holder. If I recall correctly, it's a half-twist to remove, but I'm not sure. Could just be barbed clips, or something. Anyway, from here should be no problem to figure out how to remove and replace the bulb.
4. Replace corner marker/turn signal housing, and re-install torx bolt. That's it!
