Is it just the bulb? Or the whole thing?

There is a Philips-head screw holding the corner marker in place. It is easily seen from above when the hood is opened. Remove the screw. Gently pry between the body (use towel to prevent scratching) and the corner marker housing assembly. The assembly will need to move directly forward. Other than the screw just removed, there is one metal pin and 3 plastic pins holding it in place. The metal one has a tendancy to stick with time.

If the assembly doesn't come out, it's because of this metal pin. The pin is located at the very front very bottom of the assembly. To reach it, slide a screwdriver just behind where the corner light and headlight assemblies meet. The pin fits into a white socket that will look like a white ring - slide the screwdriver blade in front of the white ring to pry the pin loose.

Bulbs are replaced by turning the bulb holder 1/4 turn and pulling out of the back of the housing. For ease of bulb replacement, you can unplug the bulb holders, as well.

This procedure also works for the 1994 Honda Accord (and possibly for the 1995 1996 and 1997 Accords).

This is how I did it...

Remove the plastic plate just under the front turn signal... Lay on your back and scoot directly under neath looking up through some styro foam and you will see a screw that is encased in a plastic sheath... This prevents the screw from falling out... unscrew it and wha la... the turn signal comes right out.
