Help help help?

My right blinker is blinking faster than my left blinker, normally means a light is dying right? Alright then, how do I go along to change the light? Me and my dad are going to do it, but is there any "How-To's" you guys have on changing the back or front light?

You just twist the connector on the inside of the light under the hood, pull it out, take out the burnt out bulb, replace it, put it back in twist it so it doesn't fall out, you should be done.

I'm havin the same problem, but I think my problem deals with the switch and not any bulbs. It blinks really fast and the green turnsignal on the cluster and the passenger side front corner dont illuminate all the time. It seems that if the temp inside the car is warmer the switch works, or if i have been driving for over an hour, in which case the inside would be warmer.

Seph, I replaced my tail lamp blinker a few weeks ago, there are four screws holding the the housing in place, one is a ***** to get to as it is in a tight spot. After you get the four screws out you just pull the tail light assembly out and replace your bulbs as needed. As for the front, I havent touched.

It shouldn't be necessary to remove the entire tail light unit to replace a bulb, the wires should lead you to where the bulbs are twist the part where the wires go in, this should come out and that should come out with the bulb.

Sorry your right Rick, I forgot to mention I replaced it due to the fact I was hit and it fall into the housing.
