You can download the 05 OM by going to the FAQ C6 "sticky" at the top of the forum home page and looking under Owners Manuals. In there your will find what you are looking for. good luck!

From the owners manual:

Quote:
To replace a high-beam or front parking/turn signal/DRL
bulb, do the following:
1. Turn the wheel to allow access to the wheel well.
2. Access the high-beam or front parking/turn signal
bulbs by removing the access panel. To do this,
remove the three outer fasteners and flip back
the cover.
3. Remove the outer cover to expose the high-beam
headlamp bulb socket once the access cover has
been removed.
4. Remove the headlamp
bulb by releasing the
outer tabs from
the socket.
5. Remove the front parking/turn signal bulb by turning
the bulb socket counterclockwise.
6. Replace the high-beam headlamp bulb with a new
bulb and reattach to the bulb socket.
Replace the front parking/turn signal bulb by turning
the bulb socket clockwise.
7. Reverse the Steps 2 through 4 to reinstall.

Here is what it looks like with a few of the fastener pins removed and the cover "flipped back":

I'm sure it's easier to change the turn signal BULB, rather than the turn signal itself.

I suspect that's what you meant.
