    Twist the bulb socket located on the back of the sidelamp light assembly in a counterclockwise direction and gently pull it out of the assembly.

    Remove the side marker bulb by pushing it into the socket and turning it counterclockwise. Insert the new bulb by pushing it into the socket and twisting it clockwise.

    Place the bulb socket back into the assembly. Reinstall the lamp assembly by sliding the guides located at the top and bottom of the assembly near the front headlamp into the tabs. Make sure it is secured and sealed before closing the hood.
