One of my Parking lights, the orange ones in the corner of the headlights burnt out, I want to get rid of the other orange one and just put clear lights in there, i dont like the look of the orange. Does anyone know how to access those lights so i can change them out?? Thanks!

@ECS...OP is talking about the parking lights on the side of the headlamp, not the turn signals

OP are you headlights halogen or HID?
Halogen headlamp unit.
Orange parking lamp bulb blown
I don't feel any rubber cover in there, very tight fit.
Looks like the bumper cover needs to com off just to change this tiny bulb.
Has anyone actually changed this bulb?
Is it a twist lock housing?
Thanks in advance.
No twist lock, the bulb and housing are just pushed in and stay in with a clip that is part of the assembly. There is a rubber cover exactly like the low beam, it is just smaller, about 1.5" diameter. Pull that off and you can feel the wires that are for the bulb. Give them a light tug and the bulb assembly pops out. You dont need to remove the bumper or the wheel well lining...and I'm 6'2" with big hands abd I was able to do this. Once you finish and know how it works it will take 10m max for both sides.
It's pretty tight but like the guy above me said, you should feel it. Take off the cover for your low beam and you'll get a little more room. You'll really have to get your hand in there to get the bulb...this is my video, you can see a little more here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0R9ssAyZ-Y&feature=plcp&context=C3b0459dUDOEgsToPDskKtVAe392OFsvR an8DfIou_
I came to this post because after getting bodywork done on my car (bought it from the dealer in bad cosmetic condition a while back and finally got the work done) and when I got it back, both of the front parking lights were out
I guess they must have disengaged something.
