I've noticed lately that the front orange turn-indicator bulbs have peeled.

I have replaced the 9007 Headlight bulbs without too much trouble, however they are clearly accessible from the front of the engine compartment.

The Indicator lights though seem to be in front of the radiator.

Has anyone replaced these on their car ?
How did you do it ?
Thanks

Aren't these part of the headlamp assembly?


REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the two retaining screws.
  3. Remove upper fascia retainers by prying under the head of the fasteners with a flat bladed tool.
  4. Remove headlamp unit from fender side first, then pull headlamp unit out.
  5. Disconnect the wiring harness from the bulbs.
  6. Remove the headlamp unit.

Gotcha, whole unit comes out ?
Too bad, I was hoping for something a little less intrusive.

Does that mean I need to re-align the head-lights once complete ?
Thanks

Just don't tamper with the adjustment screws and only remove the screws that secure the plastic body.
If you need to re-aim the h/lamps, just shine them on a wall to get them level.

Hey there imperial crown,
I removed the two screws and compression pins on the cowling.
Sure enough the whole light assembly came out and I was able to replace all bulbs.
It also made the retaining socket / pigtail much easier to repair.

The headlight aiming screw is actually part of the lamp assembly, which is a very nice design feature.
I must admit, the design team did a good job making this repair process easy.

Good stuff!

Thanks again
