You'll probably have to remove the trunk lining to find the mounting screws or brackets. There is no reason to break any tabs if the procedure is done properly.

Patience is a virtue. :)

FORGET PATIENCE. WE BROKE THE TAB OFF AND FOUND THE TIP OF A SCREW, WHICH WE YANKED ON UNTIL WE GOT IT OFF AND COULD SEE THE MECHANISM. ONCE YOU REMOVE THE TWO OUTSIDE SCREWS, PEEL THE LINER BACK AND REMOVE ONE NUT. THEN PULL THE ENTIRE ASSEMBLY STRAIGHT BACK, WITHOUT WIGGLING OR GETTING COCKEYED. THE TAB HOLDS A PLASTIC SLOT WHICH HAS A ROD THAT SLIDES RIGHT OUT, BUT YOU MUST PULL THE ASSEMBLY STRAIGHT OUT. GOOD LUCK.

peel back lining behind the assembly in trunk.you will see two little black square anchors and they have wings on eachside that need to be sqeezed this releases the pegs then slide the assembly slightly outward as these pegs on a little track then it should just pull off. be careful not to break these, although it is not the end of the world if u do as you can still rig it up somehow to keep the assembly in place once you have put the assembly back

Not Necessary but helps a lot: Jack the front of the car up on both sides and remove the front wheels. Remove the bolts that hold the plastic fender well up. If you look at the seam where the front bumper cover meets the right front corner panel (one's metal and one's plastic) there are more bolts to remove. Pop the hood, and remove the push locks that hold the plastic bumper to the metal frame in front of the engine on top of the radiator. The front bumper cover should fall off (if you don't want it scratched lay a towel down in front to lay the bumper on. From there, remove the two bolts that hold the front Chevy symbol to the bumper cover. and pop it off.


How do you replace the front turn signal bulb located on a 1986 Honda Accord LX?

open your hood and there should be a screw in the corner of the turn signal and it should slid right outHere is what I had to do on my 1988 Accord1. Open the retractable headlights.2. Remove the plastic shroud around the headlight: two screws in front and one on each side.3. Look to the outside of the headlight and you will see a single screw in a small plastic cover on the front inside edge of the signal light assembly. The headlight prevents you from getting at the screw straight-on. I broke it loose with an offset Phillips screwdriver, and then backed it out with a regular Phillips.4. Remove the plastic cover, and you will see two screws. Remove them.5. Now you can pull the turn signal assembly forward and out.6. To remove the bulb holders from the assembly, twist counterclockwise and pull out.7. Pull straight outward to remove the bulbs.To assemble, follow the steps in reverse. Note that there are two plastic rods on the back end of the turn signal assembly that you will insert into two holes in the channel of the fender.

How do you replace a turn signal bulb 2005 Montana?

To replace the front turn signal bulb in a 2005 Montana, you have to access it from the engine compartment. Undo the front headlight assembly as per the instructions noted elsewhere. There is one screw (machine Head) on the outboard side of the headlight assembly, and one 'thumb screw' on the inner side to the assembly. I found it difficult to remove the headlight assembly, and I have found you don't have to. (You can break the housing, so don't try taking it right out) Just loosen it enough to get your hand behind the assembly. I would also suggest you remove the plastic fasteners from the top of the front bezel in order to make loosening the headlight assembly easier, and to prevent the possibility of damaging or breaking the front bezel. The plastic fasteners are easily removed with just a pair of pliers. Once the headlight assembly has been moved forward slightly, you can get your hand down the opening, and feel for the turn signal lamp assembly. Twist to remove. There is enough wire in the harness to bring the lamp assembly to 'the surface' where you can replace the bulb easily. Replace bulb and test. After testing, replace headlight, and then plastic fasteners at the top of the front bezel.

How do you remove the headlight assembly on a 2003 Subaru Forester It must be removed to change bulbs other than headlamp?

according to the manual you have to remove the front grill and plastic lamp cover then unbolt the lamp housing to remove it then replace the bulbs - unfortunately it is very vague as to the exact procedure for removing the front grill. I dont think you actually have to remove the headlight assembly, you open the hood and get to the bulb through the back side of the headlight.
