You have to be able to reach behind it, so you might want to remove the wheel/tire for better access (although, if you have a lift, you can do it from below). If you're doing it through the wheel well, you'll also need to loosen the screws that hold the black plastic wheel well liner in place (and move the liner aside) in order to expose the back of the lens. You'll see two holes: the round one for the lamp base (remove the lamp socket from the lens) and a square hole forward of the round one. Reach into the square hole and push down on the spring-loaded latch on the lens, then slide the lens towards the front of the car INSIDE the bumper cowl about 1/2"; this will release the lens' holding tabs from the rear-ward end of the lens allowing you to then slide it out towards the rear of the car. Installation is the reverse of what I described. (1/10/2009) Mine seemed to be much simpler. I was able to use a rigid plastic tool to pry the lens out from the out side of the car. Even though I used a plastic tool just in case, the tool itself never touched the paint of the car. (Just carefully pry against your finger or something) From the end facing the rear of the car, pry, pushing forward and out. The lens comes out quite easy. The bulb with rubber boot pulls straight out (no twisting). To replace, put the rear-facing end of the lense in the hole first, then press the front end (the end with the spring) firmly into place. You are set!- Jay

I've replaced the front marker bulbs. Take a flat smallish screw driver, and insert it behind the yellow lens. Carefully pop it out. Move the lens towards the rear, to unhook the 2 plastic tabs. (don't force it or you'll break them off!!) The bulb is now exposed. Pull it straight out, and replace it. You might try wiggling it abit first. It might just be a poor, corroded contact.

How do you replace a side marker bulb on Lincoln ls 2000 passenger side?

First you'll need something like a butter knife with a nice narrow blade but a very small/thin flat blade screwdriver will also work. As you face the marker lens (on passenger side of the vehicle as in the question) insert the blade in the end of the lens facing the rear of the car. You should feel some tension or even metal because there is a flat metal spring clip there. Just push in and gently pry that end of the lens out. Be careful and slow because the front end of the lens just has a plastic "hook" that slips under the bumper trim and if you do this from the wrong end you could break it and would have to buy a new lens. Now just twist the bulb holder about a quarter turn and replace the bulb. Incidentally, the bulb is part number 2825. Having done this just pop the lens back in but in reverse order. Hook the one end and just push on the other and the clip will seat. If on the drivers side the clip will be facing the rear of the vehicle also. This will also work for 2001 LS.

All I did was remove the side marker lens by taking a small flat head screwdriver and pop it out. The side marker isn't screwed in so it comes right off. Then just remove the bulb by rotating counterclockwise.
