Default replacing front turn signal bulb

awefully embarrased to ask this question...um...but whats the easiest way to replace the front turn signal bulb? Drivers side.

There'* no way I can get my hand down there to grab the socket and looks like there'* a lot of weird stuff to unbolt to just get a little better access to the socket. I replaced the headlight bulb yesterday after ripping up my hands trying to pull it'* socket out, but there'* no way I can reach the turn signal bulb socket.

you have to remove the 2 10mm bolts that hold the HL in, and then pull the HL out of the "Ball and Socket" attachment in the fender. Grab HL and Pull straight forward, and it will pop out

Also an excellent time to clear your corners while your in there. Did mine when I had to change my first bulb out, only added about 1-1.5 hours to the task while watching TV.
