Best Answer

u have to take off the bumper to get to one mor screw ther should be only 4 screws one the top part of your bumper and 3-5 on the bottom

This is for the 95-97 Contour. 98+ are different, because the light housing changed completely.

1. Open the hood.

2. In each front corner of the hood, there is a torx bolt, head about the size of a nickel. Removing this one bolt allows you to remove the corner marker/turn signal housing.

3. Once the housing is free, you have access to the back of the bulb holder. If I recall correctly, it's a half-twist to remove, but I'm not sure. Could just be barbed clips, or something. Anyway, from here should be no problem to figure out how to remove and replace the bulb.

4. Replace corner marker/turn signal housing, and re-install torx bolt. That's it!

Turn on that fast blinking signal light and check to see if the front and rear signal lights are both working, chances are you have a burned out bulb. If both front and rear bulbs are flashing fast, replace the flasher relay.
