Where are the parking light bulbs located? Only my right light illuminates when the parking light is selected on the dash. I see a faint glow coming from inside the low beam headlamp but cant really tell where the bulb is. Bentley Manual doesnt pin point the light source either, just tells LOW/HI Beams and FOG.

Thanks for all the help so far, just got my car and i'm trying to square away the issues.

Pop the hood, it's located right behind the parking lamp. It's just a socket that's clipped into the lamp. If you can't see it, try to feel for it. It should have 2 hinges you just squeez together and the bulb should come out along with the socket. Just push down on the buld, twist and pull, the bulb will come out. Replacement bulbs should be around $2 each. Check to make sure there are 2 round contacts and 2 filiments on the bulb when purchasing, not 1. I think they are 12 V's.
