Question Side marker light removal

Does any one have any tips on removing the front side marker lights? I would kind of like to get an idea before I get my LED lights in. Thanks

HAHA good luck... Took me around an hour just to get them out. A lot easier if u jack the car up (and use jack stands of course... that's a no brain-er). You will see bolts holding the plastic onto your bumper. Unscrew those and get that big plastic piece off. Then you have to reach your hand all the way under and around in a U shape to get the lights out. And you have to take the lights out too and its easy after that. I installed black ones on my car. PAIN IN THE ASS.

for the front ones you just need to unscrew the wheel well liner and then pop it out with your hands. For the rear ones you want to lay down with your head even with the exhaust tips. Then you can reach up with the inside arm and you can reach the side marker, then you just pop it out.

Soo.. I had to replace my front turn signal bulb, and it seemed way too easy. I removed the headlight and the side marker assembly is just right there. I didn't try to remove it, but is it possible just to take it out that way?

Easiest way to take the blinker/marker light out is to remove the headlight (only 1 or 2 bolts) then its right there, it has 1 screw in the back. It takes some forcing to get it in and out sometimes, but dont bother with the wheel well liner. If you need to change the bulb, you dont even need to take the headlight off, just reach around

Removing the headlight involves taking the front bumper off. It's not just 1 or 2 bolts
