Has anyone else on here had their passenger side turn signal bulb go? It happened recently and I went and bought one at the dealer. The guy popped my hood, said bah this side is a pain and I could definately see why. He didn't seem to know what he was talking about because he told me to just take out the wiper fluid tank, but I am not so sure its possible for it wont just come out, it drains into something attached to it from the bottom. Anyways, seeing what others did, im kinda stumped and dont want to have to take the bumper off, then the headlight just for a stupid bulb. Thanks.

Re: Getting to the turn signal bulb? (Heimpel)

You dont have to take out the whole tank.<br>You have to remove the filler neck. One torx 25 screw and just lift it straight out.<br>With the neck out of the way your hand will fit a little better.

Also, some long thin pliers will help, just be careful not to break the bulb holder.
