Re: how to replace a side marker bulb up front?

i just replaced my driver's side today. i had to go through the access door in the fender well to turn the bulb. once it was loose, i was able to get at the bulb from underneath. it was tricky putting the new bulb in because the socket kept moving around. i couldn't reach both of my hands up in there. i had to use the access door to tighten the bulb back in place. it was a pita but only took 5 min or so using both of their suggestions.

Re: how to replace a side marker bulb up front?

The replacement and location of this bulb is absolutely ridiculous. I opened the little trap door on my 06' and i still cant easily get the bulb out of the headlight. And you cant even easily unmount the headlight to make your life a lot easier. Did anyone use a tool to get the bulb out or are my fingers just not small enough to turn the socket? Looking for any additional tips from 05-06 owners who have replaced this bulb before.

Reach underneath the WK. That was easiest for me.

Actually i am an idiot cause i did not realize that large black plastic piece going into the headlight was the entire socket assembly thing. I was able to get it out. And by the way there was this black plastic bag shoved up in the fender that was really soft feeling. I thought it would be like drugs or money, but to my dismay it was some sort of insulation.


Once I had it loose i was able to reach up and see it. The combo access door and reaching up and taking out the bulb seemed to be the ticket. Thanks yall.
