Is there a trick to getting new turn signal indicator lights in the dash.

For any under dash work I find it is best to remove drivers seat and lay down some padding, be it towels or blankets, anything helps. Lou Cote

Nope, just plug then in like any other bulb.

Yeah,right. Easy to say if you are a double jointed octopus With size 3 hands. The dumb things are so dim the can only be seen after dark anyway.

Use the new LED bulbs like I did on my 62 GT. Really bright! Lots of info on the Forum.

Hint from post #2 should be followed!

I don't know, I'm 6 ft, 250lbs with size 11 hands (honestly, size 11 or XL gloves) and it was no problem for me. I did replace them with LEDs, (and every other lamp too) and they work great, even during the day, the LEDs are much brighter.

Well, I am 6'1" and 215 and have considerable difficulty. Age does not make it any easier. Thanks for the LED tip! Know where to order and part # or SKU??

I'm using these in the signal indicators. http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-BA9S-White-LED-Instrument-Panel-Light-Bulbs-1815-1895-53-57-for-Chevrolet-/221552470814?hash=item33958e6b1e
