Have anybody decided to change that side blinker in chrome housing if so how do you go about doing so and what bulb does it use??

Its a 194 bulb i believe, and you can pull out the front fenderwells for access. (I just took a quick peek at this once while i had the passengers side off, so i assume the drivers is the same)

You don't state your location in your profile. So beware, US Fed Laws on front/side turn lights REQUIRE amber, when I last looked. (pls double-check me!) I think the white you intend, may get you a ticket or two..........

And only strictly, REAR visible, turn lights may be red.

Just a heads-up..........

Thanks Smokin SRX for looking out for me and yes thats the second time pointed out I need to update profile lol but yes it ok here to have clear blinkers on front and side I.e. Older cars which use marker/blinker in the front the bottom or on bumper and as far as side a lot BMW's and VW gti's has the clear lense with clear bulbs here but thanks again o btw I wasn't going to change rear blinker but might change reverse bulb later to match the other or use led because doesn't blink so won't have to worry about "hyper flash"

I'm in the same boat man, there's nothing in the manual, just go knock a couple of bolts out of the fender. I can't anymore, because i siliconed my mudflaps to the fender liner so rocks don't get in between.
