Side marker bulb lens removal

Recommended Posts

I can’t seem to find any info on accessing the side marker / position indicator bulb, pictured.  It’s not mentioned in the Haynes.

 

after breaking my license plate lenses, I figure it’s worth asking.

I broke it!  The lens is attached with nuts and bolts through the fender.  Hopefully the JB weld isn’t too black through the lens.

a couple dabs where the bolts attachment broke.  Hope that does it for a while.

It sucks as those fasteners get so rusted they usually just twist right off, or break out of the plastic lens.  Hopefully the JB weld works - I don't ever use that on plastic.

Sealed beams mean you replace the whole headlight.  I’d highly recommend a quality e-code replacement like Hella or Bosch and then it will have a H4 bulb you can replace.

To replace your have to remove the assembly and take apart the plastic housing on the back.

Assembly comes out by popping the top corner closest to grill out, then the top corner on the fender side can come out of it’s ball socket.  Adjuster rod inside can pop out, and there’s a spring on the bottom you have to unhook.

Pretty easy.
