About a year an a half ago I had the same problem and am experiencing it again. My passenger's side front turn signal flashes very fast when I put it on, and the rear doesn't flash at all. Not sure what the problem is. Is it just a burnt out bulb? thanks for the replies.

Ok, someone sent me a pm about putting on my hazard lights to see what happens. I put them on and all of the lights work except the right rear turn signal....which I already knew. My question is....if I replace that bulb, will that stop the front turn signal from flashing rapidly when I put my signal on? Is this some sort of warning sign that one of the turn signal lights are not functioning properly?

Thanks for the little tips, sometimes I don't think of the obvious.

My bulb actually wasn't burnt out either. The contacts were bad. Every once in a while the one would not work. Since I replaced it, everything has worked fine. Maybe the contacts are bad on yours as well.

connections look good except i couldnt get at the turn flasher it was buried in there. I noticed the headlamp wants to come out (the signal and side marker unit as it pivots when you pull it but i couldnt figure out how to get it out. Even with a quick read of the shop manual im still a little stumped as to really how to get er out without snapping something. Any experience with this?

Sorry, no experience at all. Mine was the rear tail light. There are a lot of talented people here though. I hope they can give you some advice. Good luck.

There are 3 screws and a ball and socket type fitting on the back of the assembly. The screws are straight forward, the ball and socket is tight. You just have to pry it carefully. And also take the rubber seal off the side of light ass'y. A tip for reinstalling the screws under the head light, put a dab of bearing grease on the screw before putting it in the socket. This will keep the screw from falling out on you and having to hunt for it.

Actually now I do. My headlight went out the other day. I replaced them with some silverstars. Anyways, I had some trouble as well, until I read the manual for understanding. Sometimes I read so fast I don't understand what I am reading....I get excited doing new projects..... There are four bolts that come out. The first one sits right next to the radiator. I think 1/2" should get it out. Not sure on that size. You will need a T10 X 4" star screwdriver for the next screw. (I got mine at Autozone for $3) This star screwdriver will take out the screw to get out the turn signal. The turn signal will slide out. Almost like a drawer. Then you will see two more bolts behind the turn signal. They can be taken out to get the headlamp out. The last part is to Tug HARD on the headlamp. It will pop out of a hole. Kinda hard to describe what it is that holds it in place. As long as you have the four bolts out, don't be afraid to tug a bit. After that, you are home free. Replace bulbs and put it back together. Remember not to touch the bulbs with your hands! The are probably Halogen. Good luck.

Be sure not to take out the wrong star screw. I think there are 3 or 4 different ones. The rest of the star screws are used to calibrate the light beam....you don't want to throw off the angles of your head lights. You'll be blinding the oncoming traffic...haha
