Isn't the turn signal right next to it? What about that one?
it is. i didnt pull that one to check the bulb. i dont mind that one staying original. in the past ive changed them to LED but doesnt make that much of difference to me. I was just interested in changing the reverse. id assume they use the same bulb though. sucks the manual does disclose the type of bulb needed

Done with the backup lights, not bad. I really wanted to get those turn signal bulbs, but they're in a bad place behind other stuff. I expect someday I'll need to change them, guess I'll just give it some time to simmer. Thanks for posting this!

Yes, it deflects just enough. If my arms were any bigger, it wouldn't happen. If they were smaller, I could have reached the turn signal bulbs!

Did you have any trouble changing out the driver side reverse light? I had no trouble sticking my arm through and turning the passenger side socket counterclockwise and replaced that one very easily. But by the driver side there is a piece of metal sticking out that is in the way and preventing me from turning the socket counterclockwise. It turns maybe a hair or two and then runs into that piece of metal. It needs to turn a full quarter turn just about to be able to have the tabs aligned and pull out.

The drivers side cleared that piece of metal for me. I know exactly what youre talking about. Here’s the catch… I could have swore when i took it out I turned it CLOCKWISE from 9oclock to 12oclock… but when i put it back in i put it in at 6oclock and turked clockwise to 9oclock and it cleared that metal fine.

Anyway I dropped my bulb in the housing and cant get it out so i’ll be sending saturday taking the bumper off. With 0 direction out there on how to do it.
