    Exclamation Replacing Turn Signal?

    Can anyone tell me how to replace the left rear turn signal, with a new one. So I can skip the $70.00 an hour. Appreciate any help. The Floyd

    For starters, download this service manual, it will help you a lot for all of your projects.

    It's a slow download, so be patient!

    It just unbolts from the mount. Follow the wire back to the bundle under the right side cover and unplug there....OR easier....cut and splice the old wire under the fender.

    Yep; what shyman said. It unbolts inside the fender. Easier to cut and splice if you can/don't feel like running wire. Make sure to make a good connection and use some heat shrink tubing if you can to seal out moisture, dirt, etc. if you decide to splice.

    That about wraps it up. While your at it you may want to look at Kurys run time brake module. Easy to install just read the directions a few times.
    PS you will have to change the lense color to red per DOT.

    Sorry to hear about your very public mishap. It happens. It could have been more costly.
