There are 2 nuts on the back of the turn signal that you have to remove, they are kind of a PITA to get to. I'm sure someone has a pic some place, but I believe they are 10mm. You can find them if you feel around back there, not much room to work but it's definitely doable.

you gonna need either a deep well socket or a shallow one and an extension, they are stupid easy but hard to get around the battery on both sides, if you can move it back just enough you can get in there, and its 2 bolts rite behind the turn signal and 2 screws rite on top, whole housing comes off with the side marker light and chrome/black surround (xlt/xl model) and remove the bottom and side marker from that
