That switch is located by the brake pedal you put your foot on to brake
Raise hood and remove two hex bolts holding light assembly. You will see three round rubber covers, approximately 4" in diameter. Unscrew the one to the far left, giving access to the signal light bulb. The bulb pulls straight out. Insert new bulb, replace rubber cover, attacht light assembly back to vehicle with hex bolts, close hood, and pat yourself on the back for job well done.
