You have to get into the trunk (zx4, zx5, zxw ) or hatch on the zx3. behind the taillight there will be a couple of screws/wingnuts that you have to unscrew and then the tail light assembly comes off. From there you will be able to change the bulb. Good luck.

I can't seem to find or how to change the blubs for the turn signals and the back up lights.


I don't have your make and model so I can only give a general answer.
  • Turn the engine off and open the hood. Pry up the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flathead screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the headlight case.

  • 2

    Pull up the two metal rods behind the headlight case. These secure the case to the vehicle. You may need your pliers to pull them up.

  • 3

    Gently pull the headlight case out to access its rear. On the rear, you will find several black dust covers. Twist off the dust cover closest to the fender (the outward dust cover) to access the turn signal bulb.

  • 4

    Turn the bulb module counterclockwise to release it. Unplug the electrical connector from the bulb module. Connect the new bulb to the electrical connector (don't touch the glass with your hands; hold it by the plastic piece). Insert the bulb module in the turn signal housing, turn it clockwise and screw the dust cover back on.

  • 5

    Insert the headlight case in the mount. Push the pins back down to secure it. Position the radiator baffle in its place and insert the fasteners.

  • as far as back up lights,

  • Go in the trunk and pull back the side pannel of the trunk and turn the bulb until it comes out and change it and turn the new bulb back in place.

    Passenger side rear only, turn signal and break light not coming on. Changed bulbs did all the normal maintenance checks. Mechanic said the signal switch is out and it's about $350 to replace it. Do you...


    I HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM BEFORE, SOMETIMES A WIRE COMES DETACHED FROM THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. REMOVE THE COVER FROM THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, SEE IF ALL THE WIRES ARE CONNECTED TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH CONNECTOR. YOU MAY HAVE TO PULL ON EACH WIRE TO SEE IF IT IS SECURED IN THE CONNECTOR. IF THAT IS NOT THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY NEED A NEW TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

    I need to change the left rear turn signal bulb, but I do not know how to remove the cover


    A little more info may help, but for most of them you open the tailgate, or rear hatch.
    You will see a couple screws that go into the housing.
    Take these out and pop the cover off.
    Twist out the socket holding the bulb you want to replace, then you can change the bulb.

    Right rear signal works but the left does not. Changed bulbs twice and still have problem


    Look inside under the steering wheel to the left,remove the lower steering column cover and knee pad panel to see junction box. The each fuse and relay will be marked for the right turn signal and the left turn signal. Look for a blown fuse on the left side. If not then the relay will be at fault. Before you start look to see if either turn signal lights are working on the left side. If the front is working and the rear is not then it will ba a short in the wiring to the rear causing the problem. Hope this will help you.

    How do I change front blinker bulb on 2003 chev impala


    First,
    1. Turn the engine off and open the hood. Pry up the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flat head screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the headlight case.
    2. Step 2 Pull up the two metal rods behind the headlight case. These secure the case to the car. You may need your pliers to pull them up.
    3. Step 3 Gently pull the headlight case out to access its rear. On the rear, you will find several black dust covers. Twist off the dust cover closest to the fender (the outward dust cover) to access the turn signal bulb.
    4. Step 4 Turn the bulb module counterclockwise to release it. Unplug the electrical connector from the bulb module. Connect the new bulb to the electrical connector (don't touch the glass with your hands; hold it by the plastic piece). Insert the bulb module in the turn signal housing, turn it clockwise and screw the dust cover back on.
    5. Step 5 Insert the headlight case in the mount. Push the pins back down to secure it. Position the radiator baffle in its place and insert the fasteners.
    6. Rear Turn Signal Bulbs
    7. Step 1 Open the trunk. Remove the net from the side mounted wing nut (on the side with the faulty turn signal). Twist the wing nuts (there are two per side) counterclockwise to remove them.
    8. Step 2 Peel the carpet layer back to access the rear signal lamp wing nuts. Twist these wing nuts (two per side) counterclockwise to remove them and release the rear signal.
    9. Step 3 Carefully pull the rear signal assembly away from the Impala. The rear turn signal is the inner bulb (closest to the trunk). Press the tab on the bulb module and turn it counterclockwise to release it from the rear signal assembly.
    10. Step 4 Pull the old bulb straight off the module (don't twist). Insert the new bulb in the module. Depress the tab on the connection and insert the module back in the assembly. Twist it clockwise.
    11. Step 5 Insert the rear signal assembly. Re-attach the assembly's wing nuts and push the carpet layer back in place. Tighten the other two wing nuts to secure the carpet layer and reconnect the cargo net

    Can't get the cover off to change the bulb on the front turn signal


    Hello terencewelch...the lens covers on these older models trucks seldom come off without damge. They are sealed with a gasket and compound to make them weather proof. You should be able to replace the bulb from the rear of the assembly. If you cant get to it from the back, slide the entire turn signal assembly out to access. Here is picture of the assembly for reference.
    Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.
