Great pictures, now can we move to the front of the car and show how to change a simple turn signal bulb? Passenger side would be great, and both sides would be better. NYS inspection needs turn signals to work and I got 9 days and counting to get it done!

If I was a car designer I would make that car where you can pull the trunk liner out and easy access to the back on the headlamp assembly, but something tells me, NOT!

This new ownership thing is fun, but wow its a 5$ lightbulb....LOL

Removing the liner isn’t necessary to change the turn signal bulbs. The housings snap in place. As I recall, they slide in one direction and pull out. I apologize that I don’t recall the exact procedure.

@spartan and @Sinovac, he said turn signal, not side marker.

Pull the fender liner, which involves some push pins and brute strength. Assuming you are certain it is the bulb (the indicator fast blinks and the hazard also does not work). If hazard works and turn signal does not, then you have to diagnose the SJB. Or, as the owner's manual says, see your authorized dealer.

Also, please remove the comma: "Nothing says, I've given up more than a beige Camry in the drive."

From what I am reading, I have to remove the front splitter. I also read that a person said to slap the top of the headlight housing, too which I did, and it started working! Where we live in NYS we have bad, bumpy, no maintained roads, due to Mario's son not knowing that there is a place called Upstate NY, thus I think when I drove it the other day, I must have jarred it. Now it is working fine and I will get it inspected and be OK. I have owned and still do own cars and I have never even burned out a bulb, that is why I thought that something was up and the bulb was OK.

Yes, the hazard did not light up and the turn signal fast blinked. Like I said, I slapped it a few light nice slaps and it started working again.

A good slap for misbehavior. I just had the splitter off to drain coolant and I did not see access to the headlamp assemblies from underneath. Not saying it can't be done, but I couldn't even see the lamps.

You have to do it by feel. The turn signal bulb only takes a quarter turn to come out of the headlight housing.

Frank is right... you can do it by feel.... getting it out is easy, replacing takes patience...
