    I need to change my front signal lights---the ones right next to the headlights. Can anybody tell me how to access it. Also, my parking lights are not working in the front although when I have my turn signals on or the hazard light on, they will work. I've checked the fuses underneath the hood and underneath the dash and they seem to be all good. Can anybody give me some suggestions...thanks

    There is a screw on top of the front/side light then just pull it out, there are a couple of clips holding it in so you have to put alittle strength behind it. If your just changing the bulb you don't have to take the housing out, the bulb socket should twist out.

    From what you're describing I think you're expecting them to work in a way they never did.
    The lights right beside your headlights are just marker lights (some people call them parking lights). These just turn on whenever you turn on the headlights. The ones in the bumper are strictly turn signals/ emergency flashers. They only turn on with the turn signals or the emergency flashers.

    MowTaco is totally right and the parking lights have one little screw on top of them so you gotta pop the hood, take it out then there is a little tab on the outer side that will pop out and then a snap screw type thing on the bottom and just pull and it will just pop out then acces the boulb housing from behing by twisting and pulling the plugin

    to get the blinker just look under bumper from wheel well and twist and pulll out the bulb socket and ur good

    hope this helps:)
