If it's the same as a 1996, then to get the headlight off, you have to unscrew the top screw which is in the corner closest to the fender, and then there's another screw between the headlight & the front blinker even though there's absolutely no room. I could find no way to get a screwdriver or any other took to fit in there & the repair shop had no idea how to replace it. I was told by a friend that you can get an Allen wrench in there? I ended up breaking the brackets for the bottom screws on both headlights, but you can keep the headlight staying in with just the top screw. After getting the headlight housing off, you have access to the screws for the blinker housing. It's a lot easier to take off the housing to change the bulb rather than to just pull the wire out & expect to put it back in easily!

If your 2002 Grand Cherokee turn signal will not work, it is a good idea to check the fuses first. Then, check the bulb in the signal to see if that is lighting at all. Replace the fuse if it is blown.
