    the bulbs are not more then 2 bucks or so, its probably your turn signal in the front so all you do is pop open the hood, find the turn signal, then find the gray colored piece that is on the back of the signal. Twist this a quarter turn or so and that whole piece , and the bulb will come out, pull out the bulb, put the new one in, and turn the bulb back in place.

    I forgot to mention there are two of these bulb attachments, one is the turn signal and the other is the daytime running light , the one thats closest to the outside of the car is the turn signal bulb, the one closest to the center of the car would be the daytime running light

    you have a burnt out bulb on that side of car its usually the front turn signal bulb thats out...cost no more then 2 bucks you can reach it from under the car by sliding under the right front fender locate the back of the housing and twist out the holder replace bulb then twist it back in...your DRL might be working but the trun is out

    if the rear is staying on it means the front is burned out, you dont need to replace the rear, but if you want to any ways you have to unlock the plastic inside the hatch and pull the carpet back, there are to twist knobs that you take off by hand and the whole assembly comes out, then just twist and replace

    1)open hatch
    2)pull interior panels back near tail light
    3)loosen black thumb scews, remove and set them aside
    4) pop out tail lens
    5) locate socket which has burned lamp
    6) sqweeze tabs and turn to release from lens back
    7) pull out burned lamp from socket
    8) replace
    9) reverse steps 4-1

    Alternative:
    1) locate burned out side
    2) take a sledge hammer out
    3) smash the piss out of the lens
    4) paint new bulb red or orange
    5) replace burned bulb with painted one
    6) lol
    7) just kidding
    8) lol

    COME ON GUYS!!! your letting me down here... If the bulb comes on, but dont flash.. UUUMMMM it is going to be the flasher.. Thats the whole job the flasher does...A FUSE does not make it flash or not... A burnt fuse will make your lights not come on at all... But since there coming on, that leaves the flasher...

    The flasher was my first thought. That's how I've always dealt with that issue in the past. But, if these guys say to change a bulb...

    Lots of things about this car that are different from the Chevelle's that I drove for 14 years. I learn something new all the time.

    Guess I'll find out for sure when the issue arises in my Camaro.
