How to change front side marker bulb?

Greetings from Finland!
My 300c front side marker bulb is burned out. My owners manual doesn't tell a word about changing it nor the type of the bulb! Help, pls!

Hey Topias:
Is this the side marker you are referring to? Circled in Green.


Take a small flat head screwdriver. Wrap the end of the small flat head with a shop rag or towel. Wedge the flat head into the side of the marker I marked with red line. Slowly work out the marker light. Is there an auto parts store in Finland? If not take the bulb to the dealership. They should have one for you. I believe it is a 194 clear bulb.

When you finish with the bulb change. Pop the marker back in place with your hand.

Thanks for Your quick answer - I'll try to change the bulb tomorrow. At the moment it is 11 pm in Finland!

Actually it is not that easy, If you just wedge it out you will strip the nut that is needed to hold it in place. You have to pull down the fender well liner and reach in with a socket wrench and take off the nut that is on the front part of the light, the back part is just a clip that you can then push with your hand. Once this is done you just change the light and work backwords.

Or you can rip it out as explained above.

Yes, it really wasn't so easy. I could not pop the light out nor reach the front fitting. So I released the two screws and two plastic holders holding the plastic inner fender and after that managed to put my hand behind the light body. Working "blind" I managed to turn off the bulb and change it. Definately not the right method, but worked.

Dont even have to go threw all that. Just take out 3 clips that hold the inner fender to the fender reach in with your hand and turn the bulb. It comes right out. Pull out the old bulb put in the new one and your done. You dont have to take the side marker to change the bulb.

Aren't those 3 clips one-time use? As I understand I'll have to buy them from the dealer after their remove. Please explain guys!

If I throw a dog a bone, I dont want to know if it tastes good or not...
