Question How to change a turn signal bulb?

I have a 2001 Rav4 and love it...except now when I am trying to change the front turn signal bulb The books diagram doesn't show accurately. I opened the hood and removed 4 screws and still can't get the headlight out to get at the bulb. Do I need to go to a dealer? Has anyone changed their turn signals before? I would appreciate anyone telling me what I need to do!

How to change turn signal bulb in headlamp assy.

You can change the bulb without removing the headlamp assy. It is tight but reach in and press the small latch on the plug and pull it off. Next take a small pair of needle nose pliers and reach in and grab on to the flat edge of the housing where you removed the plug from. So one jaw in where the 2 metal contacts are and one jaw on the outside, you will be squeezing down on the flat plastic part of the housing that sticks out. Be careful not to damage the two metal contacts inside the housing. Then just twist a quarter turn and out it comes. Replace the bulb then do the reverse. Notice that the housing has one larger tab and three smaller ones. If you look in you can see the larger tab opening in the headlamp, just line it up and get it started by hand, then use the needle nose to turn it and lock it in place. Attach the plug back on and you are done.
