well im not sure if you are asking about front or back so I will tell ya both. If you need to change the fronts the easiest way I have found is to remove the headlight. This will give you alot more room to get your hand down there.Once you do that there is a little lever on the socket that you must squeeze while turning the socket. Once the socket is loose then just pull the socket out of the lense housing.Now if your are trying to change the rear bulbs then just pull the carpet back in the trunk area and you will see 6 large black wingnuts. Unscrew those and remove your taillight and from there its the same procedure as the front.
I'm assuming it's a TA from your screenname. From under the car there is an access panel underneath where the parking light fixture is on both sides (in front of the tire.) Remove the 2 10mm bolts and the panel drops down. Reach up and grab the light plug and twist, extract from turn signal housing, replace bulb. Installation is reverse of removal.
Autozone lists that part as the rear socket, does it work for the front also?
Yep. Not sure about the rear but I used it for the front. Make sure your housing isn't letting moisture in or you'll be doing this again. If it is, replace it. In addition, use dielectric grease at the bulb connection to keep moisture out.
To remove the connector from the housing: twist and pull.
To remove the bulb from the connector: pull
(Sometimes they are stuck, just pull, wear gloves if you are worried about the bulb breaking in your hand.)

Next problem...finally got the new bulbs in, one side still doesnt work. I took out the socket and its fried, went to dealership they said have to buy entire new setup for $65 and splice the wires together. Pain in the Azz!! Is there anyway to just get just the socket or chances are the thing the socket goes in is fried too?
