I SEAM TO BE UNDERSTANDING BETTER YOU REFERTO PREFACE SECTION FASTENER TIGHTENING SPEC. I DO NOT HAVE THESE WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT THE BULB NO IS THANKS AGAIN R.B.YOU HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB.
The turn signal bulb is a standard 3157 bulb that can be purchased at most auto parts stores.The fastener tightening specs are not critical for that job.Just tighten fasteners until tight.
