Unhappy 2003 Saturn ION-Light bulb.

:Hi, anyone out there know how to change alight bulb? I have a 2003 Saturn Ion and the rt front turn-signal light is out, I bought the bulb expecting to be able to change it myself but it looks to be a much more complex issue than normal. There is very limited space for manouvering in front of the engine, pulling the bulb out backwards does not seem to be an option does anyone know if removing the clear plastic casing is the way to go? Several of the clips holding it in place look to have limited accessibility. Help! An hour or more's service fee seems excessive.!

Easy one you see it.


just changed one the other evening on my daughter's 03 Ion. The whole light assembly pulls out of the car after pulling the two retain pins on top of the assembly. Look straight down on the top of the head light assembly and notice two "L" shaped pins that are turned and clipped. The pins are about 1/4 inch steel rods bent at 90 degrees and pushed straight down into the assembly. Turn them free of the clips and pull them straight up and out and the whole headlight assembly can now be pulled straight out of the fron of the car. Turn the black cover on the back of the assembly that covers the turn signal and you will find the bulb underneath. Reverse operation to replace assembly back into car.

Hope this helps.
