I have not done one of those yet but from what I can see from the exploded view the grill needs to be removed and then the to bolts on top of the lamp assebly need to be removed.

The other thought is to remove/peel back the inner fender well and see if it accessable from there.

You have to remove the grill or the inner fender lining to change a light bulb? Thats crazy, 2 hours labor to change a stupid lamp. No wonder we can't work on our own cars anymore. Why would they engineer it like that? I see this a lot in my line of work as well. Its like they believe that once its together you'll never have to do any maintenance/repairs on the equipment. Sorry, just had to vent a little.

Yes and the worst part about it is them hidden screws you cant find. I use to hate when the service writer would call me up to the service lane to quickly install a bulb for free while the customer is standing there watching. You would think it is a simple task! I tell you, I can pull a tranny apart and an engine, throw all the parts in a pile, then put it all back together with no extra parts and it works good, but there has been times when I would spend an hour trying to figure out how to change a headlight! grin.gif And I look stupid trying to do it! smirk.gif

What about them star shaped,assorted bolts, screws, and other devices used to fasten body parts on vehicles? Who has some of these tools other than GM,Ford,ect.....?

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
