well i finnaly did it. I changed the turn signal bulbs and lenses

the lenses are '98-'99 style and the bulbs are the silverstars...

I started by just wanting to change the bulbs because the ones that were in the car were two different colors... ie one was lighter than the other... and this is where I ended up.

it was a pain in the a** putting the bumper back on too...I had to brace my back against a wall and push with my feet to get the thing back on, and now there are only three of the five bolts in the top of the cover cause I was missing one before, and one of the nuts got stripped on another and the bolt wouldnt thread up...
it was a pain but i like it!
and now the pics.

I bet it was, I know I had a little bit of difficulty myself when I removed mine. Doesn't it feel good knowing that you did it yourself and if you had to do it again you could probably do it 3 times faster than the first time. I love taking my car apart!

Yeah man, I didnt have to take off my bumper to get to the signals, I just took out the headlamp and squeezed my fingers in and grabbed the bulb. I think you did alot of work for nothing

I also changed the housing/lens and there was no way i was gonna be able to get my hand and a wrench of any kind into the tightness.

i changed the housing and lenses too. and i believe greg (tman) did one of them on my car also. we didn't need to take off the bumper. hmm.... oh well. i put white led's in my turn signals, but they look yellowish.. so i think i'm gonna change to the amber, than you can actually notice the crystaline look of the lenses. with white you can't.
