So,,,,,,,The girlfriend's 95,,,,,,,left turn signal won't flash.  I know its a feedback situation.  Went to pull taillight bulb, and check pigtail.  Holy Cow!surprised  This ain't like my old 1950 Roadmaster!!! Where are the screws?  The tail lights (I thought) were accessible through the trunk. Wrong confused So, then I go outside, no screws hidden or otherwise to get into the lights.  Pull the trim panel, and the aren't any tail lights.  So frustration level is going up. Go up front. Gonna pull turn signal, park light bulb.  Again, no screws to access the door.  Help me please!
    Next problem.  Trying to find the red lense for the little red light in the door panel on ther driver's side.  Wrecking yard in Sherwood Oregon flooded over the winter and of course the 95 riv. was lost to the crusher. Still trying to find one.
    3rd and final.  Still trying to locate the narrow lower trim panel with the computer socket attached, so I can try my code reader to find the lurching problem. That's all if it isn't enough. rolleyes

You have to remove the entire tail lamp assembly to access the bulbs. The rear panel that you removed is the first step. Then and only then can you remove the screws that attach the assembly to the car. There are about 8 retainers that hold it to the car. Then you have to pull the whole assembly outward (off the car).

And while it's off, just replace all the bulbs wink

tail lights - remove the rear trim panel from inside trunk then remove the plastic retainer, kinda like wingnuts. With all of them off, push the taillight assembly toward the rear of the car using the bolts inside the trunk that you pulled the plastic wing nuts off of. The sockets twistlock into the reflector, mind what direction you twist so you don't break them.

red lens for door panel - be patient (and consider getting a whole door panel from somewhere)

The computer socket in these cars merely slid into the trim panel. When the guys at the local GM garage work on my car they **invariably** push the thing up out of its mount, every stinking time, and I have to pull the trim panel and hunt around for it (they would hoist it among the other wires so it would not rattle instead of just sliding it back in place. It's a Riv quirk. And it is not a big deal.

The turn signal and park light bulbs can be reached by undoing the twist lock sockets from their reflectors while the assemblies are in place in the bumper fascia. Again be sure you are twisting the correct way so you don't bust them.

By the way, the cornering lights are reached by removing the headlights (so you have room to work), you have to press the bumper fascia down a little bit to reach the screw(s) of interest. just use a flashlight and look in there, you'll see them. Be patient.
