I can't figure out how to access the backup light bulbs. Can't get to them from inside the trunk.

I can locate the front turn signal bulbs, but not the small parking light bulbs.

I will have to check my car when I get a chance to head over to my Mom's house. I have replaced one of my reverse lights but can't remember how I did it. I will have an answer for you tomorrow.

For the front lights you have to remove the whole housing from the car. Lay on the ground and look up at the front bumper and you will see what needs to be done. There are a few hex screws that must come out and then the whole lamp assembly just comes out the front rather easily.

No, the front turn signals, that is what he is asking about.

OK. The parking/turn-signal bulbs are both in the assembly. A couple of T-15 Torx screws to remove the assembly as I recall

Now I remember about the reverse lights. Remove the license plate and there are two screws behind it that allow you to very easily remove the reverse lights.

When you open the trunk lid there are 2 screws that hold the chrome facings on the reverse lights,remove the screws and the facings will come off,then pull the lights out to change bulbs.

Thread dead for 7 years ??????
