Hi. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. And today we're going to replace this front signal light in this 2001 Chrysler, Sebring. We can see in the back there's this tab that connects to the light. I'm going to spin in a clockwise motion and remove the light from the lamp assembly. This is our light bulb and this one pulled straight out. We're going to install the new bulb the same way. It's a good idea to check the bulb before you go to the trouble to put it back in, just to make sure it works. You can tell if the bulb is bad by looking at the filament inside of the bulb. The filament is the small winding that connects the two uprights. This particular bulb was a dual filament bulb. It does two purposes. It runs all the time as a parking light and the directional light. So all these bulbs are numbered. This particular bulb is a 31/57n a. The n a is for amber. It could be a 31/57 and it would be clear. But it's an amber, so it's an n a. When we put the bulb back in to the lens assembly we can see that there's a rubber gasket. We want to make sure that we get that in there correctly so that no moisture can get inside the lens and cause in our electrical system. And that's how we change our 31/57 amber corner marker directional bulb. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
