Front Side Marker Lamp Bulb Replacement

Anyone out there had any experience replacing the front side marker lamp bulbs on the 300 cars? I can't seem to locate any literature showing me how to do it and all the owners manual says is contact dealer. Yikes !
I don't see how to access them when looking at the car, yet it certainly can't be that difficult can it ?

Anyone out there help a long time forum veiwer and new member ?

Thanks

I just snipped the 3 rivets in each wheel well,(pry them up a bit with a screw driver and then snip off the head with a wire cutters) reached in and turned the lightbulb holder and then changed the bulb. Then replaced the original rivets, which are now junk, with the 1/4" re-usable screw in type from any auto parts house.
10 minutes and done.

Glad we can help.
That's what this forum is meant to be for. I find that a lot of people disregard new members questions, because they've been asked before and they just don't want to bother with repeating answers.
But if you're new, it's a lot easier to ask than to search through tons of threads and not find an answer.
I'm still kinda new at this yet, so I am happy to give as much information as I can to those who are even newer than I.

My CRD has the original orange ones of these and they have never worked since I had the car. When are they supposed to turn on? Are they part of the indicator circuit or do they work with the main lights?
