Has anyone removed their front turn signal lens? I'm having some trouble with it. I can't really see what's actually holding it in mad

There are three clips that hold each one in from the back. I use two small screwdrivers and pry the clips apart and slide them off of the plastic tab.

Anyone happen to know how to remove the orange turn signal lamps? I'm thinking of having them smoked soon. I just hate having a multitude of colors on my car (green, chrome, black, orange, red...).

I'm assuming I'd go through the fender cover. But I'm not totally sure. Anyone have experience?

You're telling him to go thru the cornering lamp, to get to the orange turn signal lens? Don't know about that, but haven't done it myself.

I'd have to go look, but seems to me you'd get at it from underneath. Have you taken a close look under/behind the bumper to look for access?

They are held on with spring clips from the back side of the light housing. There are three tabs on the inside of the bumper cover that they are attached to. I'm sure there is a special tool to remove the clips but I just used two small screw drivers to pry the clips apart and removed them from the tab, then the assembly slides off.
Be very careful though the tabs are made of the same material as the bumper cover and the clips are made of steel, guess which one will win in a tug of war!
I can get pictures if that would help, would probably be tomorrow though.

I figured while I had it apart I'd get a pic or two, here is how these lamps are held in:

A close-up of the clip, pry it apart and pull it from the tab and the light slides out.

Okay, so I'm a bit lost. My front driver turn signal burnt out. I opened the hood and no dice from in there. Then I got on my back and undid one of the pop rivets and pulled the bottom piece back and still can't really figure out how I'm supposed to reach up in there and get the old bulb out and the new one in.

Any help would be great. I've been putting off replacing it until decent weather and today was our first above freezing day in a couple weeks, but now I can't figure out how to do it :/

After you get the inner fender out of the way, just grasp teh bulb socket and twist it 1/4 turn. It's all plastic so it wiil turn without too much hassle. Bulb is a 168 or 194 IIRC. There is enough wire to the socket that once you get it out of the housing it will hang down pretty far, making it easy enough to replace the bulb.

Albert is right about pulling the inner fender out of the way, actually the "two" push pins that hold the very front lower part of it anyway. The “marker” light is a 194 bulb but if the problem is the “running/turn signal bulb”, it is either an 1157 or a 3057; I can't remember exactly which right this minute. That info is in the owners’ manual though.

Thanks you are right, Randall - pretty sure the turn signal is 3057 - double-check in the bulb book at the parts store/Wal-Mart/Target/KMart/what have you.

Well, it's the turn signal bulb, but I have a feeling that replacing it will only be a temp fix, because I have a hole in my lens cover and there's some snow in it. I would assume that's why it failed in the first place. Is it much harder to take the lens cover off to put a new one on?

I know this right up shows how to do it, but the pictures are with the bumper off, and I can't see myself getting in there to pry those metal clips off with the bumper on.

If you pull the pins that hold the inner wheel well in and remove it, there is actually a fair amount of room. It can be done with the bumper on the car. You just have to use a tool that will get you in there and also be able to pry the clips apart.

Okay, thanks. I'll embark on it this weekend, weather permitting.
