Do I

Remove the battery?

Re: How to remove turn signal bulb - drivers side

i can do it with my meat hooks LOL but dang if the forearms aint all bruised up.

once you find the socket it has a long thing so it can be easily turned.

about 1/4 turn counter clockwise then pull . replace it the same way.

or you can remove the grill and pull the head light housing, all that will take you about 5 minutes....

Re: How to remove turn signal bulb - drivers side

i can never get it out without taking out the whole light. and taking it out without removing the bumper is quite a PITA.

if it was me, i remove the bumper. it takes about 15 minutes. but not everyone can do that.

08+ headlight removal is much easier than 05-07
