BTW... small bumper, 88 golf. We're talking the front bumper signals here. The Bentley manual shows a picture of the lens getting unscrewed... I can detect no screws

Some of the earlier model small bumper turn signals screw in from the back of the bumper. Try going up from the bottom with a flash light, you should see a screw on one of the signal, you should also be able to get the bulb out without removing the light. The later small bump signals screw in from the front.

Re: Turn signal bulbs... how the HELL? (WickedMystic)

aaa... just rip the bumper off.

You should be able to get the bulbs out without removing anything, you just have to wiggle your hand up inside there.
