I just made my way through this. The directional signal lamps are accessed from the engine compartment. The passenger's side bulb is located behind a cover with a slot in the top, directly behind the bulb. A retaining tab runs through this slot and sticks out twoard the engine. To access the bulb socket you need to depress the tab near the cover while lightly prying the cover from behind. Once the cover is off, pull the socket assembly out w/o twisting, then the bulb can be replaced. The driver's side cover is located in front of the battery box and is landmarked by a light bulb sign imprinted on an additional piece of plactic that must be removed first. To get the tab into the correct position to release, I used a set of adjustable pliers to force the tab down near the cover. I practiced on the passengers side first as it is more easily reached. Good luck, the bulbs run about $8 for a pair.
