I had a 1997 and in order to change the rear bulbs you needed to go in the trunk and behind where the tail lights are there should be a plastic cover. If you remove this you will see the bulbs. You can then replace them with a similar bulb. Additional Info: Replacing the bulbs is actually a piece of cake. You don't even need a tool. Once you remove (unsnap) the black plastic cover, you'll see three screws. These screws hold the tail light assembly to the Cabrio body. No need to take the nuts off however (just thought you'd want to know in case you ever want to remove the tail light. Just below, and inward of the top two screws are two tabs...squeeze them together with your fingers and gently pull... the bulb mounting plate will unsnap from the tail light assembly. All of the bulbs are mounted to the plate and are simply twisted and pulled out for replacement. The Cabrio takes a 7506 bulb for the stop, blinker, and back-up lights. Snap everything back together and your finished. Happy motoring...

How do you change the blinker bulb in a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire?

I just had to change out the front blinker bulb on my 97 sunfire gt, and as far as I know, there were no huge revisions between the 97 and 98 model year, so here's what you'll need to do. First of all, take out the headlight above the blinker. Your manual should tell you how to do this. Then, simply reach through the hole you've just created to losen the nuts holding the light bulb casing in place, pull it out, and change the bulb. Simple!

When your left blinker is blinking does it mean that your right bulb is dying out?

No it means you have your left blinker on. The right bulbs have nothing to do with the left blinker. An incandescent bulb either works or it doesn't. There is no dying out.
