    How to replace light bulb, 1993 Camry
    I feel silly asking this but I don't want to break anything trying to figure it out: I need to replace the driver side front running light on my 1993 Camry (the lens is yellow). There is one screw and when I remove it I'm no closer to getting to the bulb than before. I've replaced other things on the car (both front window regulators and the master switch) and know the Japanese are very clever with fasteners. This should be a simple task but, like I said, I don't want to break anything. Can anyone help? Thanks, in advance...

    Tricky stuff here... once that single screw is out, the lamp housing needs to be moved forward to release it from the fender. Getting it to move is the issue!
    Use a flat tipped tool that won't mar the paint, but slide the tool in at the rear of the lamp. Apply leverage forward while you jiggle the lamp appropriately enough to get that pesky thing out! Hehe
    Remember, you're working with an older beast and things that haven't moved in a while will resist moving now! :rolleyes:

    I think the poster is referring to the turn signal/parking lamp assy (amber). The one in the bumper?? Am I correct? That's just 1 screw and it falls out almost. Very little prying.
