Default Replacing turn signal on a 93-97 camaro

whats the easiest way to replace a turn signal bulb in a 93-97 camaro? I know the 98 and newer cars are easy as hell,but the older cars don't have a gap behind the headlights to fit your hand in there. i was thinking maybe removing the fender wall. what do you guys do?thanks!

you gotta take off the plastic lining with the air dam on it off a little and reach up.

someone had posted this,but i think he ment on the ls models.

First you have to elevate the car so that you can safely get under the front of it. Right in front of the right front tire you will notice several 10mm bolts holding up the plastic under panning. Remove those bolts, then drop down the plastic under panning and this will expose the back of the right front turn signal. Just reach up and twist out the bulb receptical to remove it and replace the old bulb with a 3157NALL bulb. It only takes about 10 minutes once you get the front of the car safely elevated enough to get under it.

No, that sounds about right for a lt car. Even with my car being lowered, I still didn't have to jack the car up though.
