Bulbs wear out; it's a fact of life. In this article, I'll go over the steps involved with replacing the turn signal bulbs in the outside mirror housings. It's a pretty easy job and should take no more than 20 minutes for both sides.

Shown here is the outside mirror housing.
Figure 1

Shown here is the outside mirror housing. You'll need to insert a small flathead screwdriver along the edge of the mirror cap and the mirror housing (green arrow). Take care as you do this. It is very easy to break the mounting clips inside.

Carefully lift the outside mirror cap up and off the mirror housing as shown here.
Figure 2

Carefully lift the outside mirror cap up and off the mirror housing as shown here.

Press the tab (green arrow) in carefully and lift the turn signal lens out of the mirror housing.
Figure 3

Press the tab (green arrow) in carefully and lift the turn signal lens out of the mirror housing. Turn the lens over and pull the bulb housing out.

The last step is to pull the light bulb (green arrow) out of the bulb housing and insert a new one.
Figure 4

The last step is to pull the light bulb (green arrow) out of the bulb housing and insert a new one. Re-insert the bulb housing back into the lens. Now fit the lens into the mirror housing and then the cap over the housing.
