93 Geo Prizm parking lamp replacementI just changed the front right parking lamp on my 93 Geo Prizm, assuming your 96 is similar, here is how to do it:

Under the hood, at the top of the juncture of the front fender, parking light assembly, and headlight assembly, there is a flat headed Phillips screw (installed vertically); remove the screw, the parking light assembly should then be somewhat loose. (After this screw has been reomoved, the unit is then held in place by a small locator shaft/pin with a notched/bulb head that fits into a sleeve in the supporting structure. This pin is located in the lower front corner of the assembly and is aligned going straight back). The whole assembly can then be pulled forward and removed. It will take some force to remove and may take a little coaxing from the back. If you pry it, use a wood shim or similar to keep from damaging the unit or the fender. It will come out straight forward - do not pull at an angle.

After removing the assembly, the bulb can be accesed from the back of the unit. Twist the socket to remove it from the back of the unit and replace the bulb.

I just changed the whole headlight assembly in my 1997 grand caravan. However, to change the parking light or turn signal indicator light, there is a round plastic plate in the front fender well in front of the tire. Pop this out and reach in and unplug the socket from the light assembly, change the bulb and install in reverse order. Good luck!

Why do the colors of the rainbow come out of a prism?

Colors show because when light hits a prism, that prism will absorb some light but not all light. The remaining light enters through the prism and the prism reflects the light, causing a rainbow!

How do you get the same ray of light after passing through the prisms?

after the light passes through the prism, the light is technically still the same just separated into different energy levels or colors. if you want to achieve the "white" light that entered the prism again, you can place another prism in front of the colored light and it should combine and create the "white" light again.
