Default Turn Signal Thingy

I have a friend with a 1998 Bonneville. He'* going to the junkyard tomorrow to get a new front right turn signal lense (it fell out). I have a few questions

1 - What years will fit in the car. I'm assuming 95-end of generation.

2 - How would we go about taking it out of the car?

Any 96-99 should work.

It has a tab and screw that holds it to the body/headlight assembly. You should be able to look straight down at it and see a philips head screww. Loosen/remove this and carefully work it out.

The more involved, but better success way to do it is to remove the entore headlight assembly. There'* 2 bolts holding it on the "radiator" side. Take those out, and the whole thing comes off, and you'll get a better view of the corner light

Practice on a car where you have time to putz with it.

I agree with Mos.. practice on a test subject because they can be stubborn. Undo the two bolts and the whole assembly slides outward toware the fender. Do not pull forward..only an outward slide.

The trip to the junkyard looking for the light was not a succes; they only had pre 92 Bonnevilles there. But we did manage to get two wheels from a 93 and 92 grand prix for his winter tires. Bolt pattern is the same.

One more question. He is going to buy it from Advance Auto Parts or Autozone and put it in. Aparently, the reason it fell out is becuase it was shorting somewhere and a garage disconnected it and never bolted it back in so it fell out. Now, he will probably try to put it in himself, but I was wondering, could it just be hooked up in parallel with the signal that'* built into the headlight near the grille? A simple wire splice would make it alot easier. It wouldn't blink quite right, but it will pass inspection.
