Take off the tire and the splash shield and you will have a good shot at it.

same is what dan said barely any oil will come out and far as warped rotors its a pretty common thing on bonnevilles i ran into the same problem its most likely ur rear breaks that are doing it if u got a 138ooo on it just put new pads and rotors and that will solve ur prob, and huh im surprised it made them blink real fast and didnt burn out but on these cars if the car notices something wrong with the lights itll create a bulb out warning just for future refernce like if u went leds or something ud need load equalizers to be capitalble with em sorry my typings bad im on my phone at work lol
