2004 CTS Cadillac front passenger turn signal bulb is out.
I have a 2004 CTS Cadillac. The turn signal bulb is out on the front passenger side. How do I replace it? I have bought the bulb, but the Auto Zone person said I needed to jack up the car and go under the bumper to replace the bulb. Is it really this complicated?

Actually no you don't. Crank your steering wheel all the way to the right so yo have the maxumum clearance for your hands and arms in the front of the wheel well. Remove the plastic clips that hold the wheel well splash guard and pull it back enough to allow access to the interior of your bumper.
Replace bulbs as needed.
Yes, a jack is nice and makes it a touch easier to access, but I did this in an AutoZone parking lot during a cross country road trip.

KMTANNER is correct for the 2003-2007 CTS. For the 2008+ CTS, you need to remove the bumper. The bumper comes off fairly easy, but there are a 2 hidden screws. Look for the youtube video on removing the bumper. I have a 2004 and 2009 CTS. I did both.
I replaced the front turn signal bulb on my 2004 CTS. I removed about 4? screws holding the inner fender to the outer fender, just forward of the tire. Then you reach your hand in and find the socket. Twist the socket about a quarter turn to unscrew it and remove the socket. As I recall the bulb is pulled straight out of the socket.
The fender liner needs to be removed. It takes the removal of up to 20 plastic pins. Once it is out of the way the bulb sockets become available. twist the bulb socket counterclockwise and the bulb can be pulled out. Reverse order for reinstallation
open trunk, remove the plastic panel around the latch plate, remove the plastic mounting bolts that hold the grey trunk liners in place, there are two 10mm nuts that hold in the light remove nuts pull out light twist the bulb retainer out and replace bulb.
Are you sure you replaced it with the correct bulb?also look at the connector and see if it looks burnt.If it does then replace it and when you replace the bulb add die electric grease to the contacts.This will keep the heat down.Good luck and I hope this helps.
Remove 3 or 4 of the plastic pins holding the inner fender. They are located around the lip of the fender opening. The pins are removed by pulling the center cap of the pin straight out about an 1/8" and then wiggle and pull the whole pin out.
Pull the inner fender down and back.
Reach your arm in and grab the socket and squeeze the locking tab.
Rotate the socket counter-clockwise less than a quarter turn, and pull straight back.
Reach your other hand in and remove the bulb by pulling it straight out of the socket. It takes a 3157 bulb
