Changing front blinker bulb?

Has anyone changed out their blinker bulbs? My right front blinker is out. Should the local auto parts store have the bulbs in stock? How hard are they to change? Going to do it myself instead of taking it back to the dealer.

To change them is very simple.

If your mustang is a 99-04, pop your hood and where your headlight assembly is, you will see 2 metal pins. Pop them upward and out. Then unplug the headlights by simply pulling the plug (there will be two tabs to hold up on the plug to unlock it). Do the same for the blinker, and pull the headlight out. Then, to remove the bulb, twist counter clockwise i believe, and pull out. Insert bulb and all is well. Local autoparts store should have your blinker bulbs.

it cant be very hard to change~ just look it up in a manual at the auto part store it will tell you which bulb to buy. Isnt the blinkers for your car below the headlamp~ it should be reach able from the underside up behind the fender well

i havent changed one yet, but if you are having trouble reaching it, its very easy to take the bumper off, we had to pull the bumper to install a turbo.first try to go through the inner fender and from the bottom.
