Hey Folks,

I can't get the front turnsignal housings on my 01 off. The manual isn't too much help, says I have to shove a screwdriver down and pop some tab. Well, I tried it, no luck.

Is there a trick to this?

Meh.

No luck. I shone a flashlight down into the hole, the tab won't flex when i put the screwdriver down there. It looks like its clipped into the headlight assembly, I'm afraid that if I push too hard i'll break something.

It's not so hard once you know what to press on.
