    Blinker not working

    So my driver side blinker stays on when I activate it. I notice the fron flasher does not work. I am sure the bulb is done, so I want to know how do I replace it? Thanks

    Sorry, there are two 10mm bolts that secure the fairing. Undo those and you will see a plug where the DRL (Daytime Running Light) secures.

    Turn it anti clockwise to undo it.

    Pull the bulb if there is anything left.

    squeeze in masssive amounts of dielectric grease.

    put in the new bulb and op check.

    I'd bet its not the bulb probably just low on blinker fluid. Dont know where the blinker fluid reservoir is on your car but you'll probably have to goto a specialty shop for the fluid, you cant get it at Autozone/O'Reillys they just look at you like your crazy If its not that then just do what Big Guns said.

    See, most F-body guys will look at this as a dumb question. Figure it out. It doesnt require too much tech.

    If you have small girl hands like me and have a t/a front fascia then you can just stick your hand under the little open vent under the DRL, bend it a bit up, spin the bulb/socket out and pull it out of the hole. That's how I change all my turn signal lights with those god forsaken sockets.

    No biggy bro. As long as you at least know the diff between a 3/8 drive and 1/2 drive rachet, we're cool.

    I just don't like starting from square one with folks sometimes......lol.

    Those are the types that should be taking their cars to a dealership or car repair area.

    Let me know if you need more help and I'll be more specific k?

    kisses,
