I got home today to find that my rear passenger side turn signal is out on my gen 4. Seems like a simple fix but whats f***ing me up is that my front turn signal on the passenger side is going at strobe speed while the driver side is normal. WTF? On a side note, how can i get those pins out of the plastic trunk panel, if tried everything and think I'm close to just snapping them.

It's suppose to go at strobe speed when the bulb is out. It's the car's way of telling you one of the bulbs is out. It's normal.

Unless you have a removal tool for those clips, just yank them out. If they break (They usually do), they break. They are literally a dime a dozen at most auto parts stores. ;)

Just pull out the square pin in the center with needle nose plyers, then with a little force, the plastic things should come right out. But, like Majisto said, don't worry about destroying them - they're cheap to replace.

And, yes, when a light bulb is burnt out, the remaining one and the indicator will blink very rapidly to let you know that the bulb is out. Very cool feature if you ask me. :) Although, I didn't know it until I looked it up after mine started blinking, lol. No wonder nobody wanted to let me change lanes on the highway the day it started blinking fast! :lol:
