Reply to Chevy man's Post: i do not have a retaining screw if i did i would not have asked the question. the picture shown is not how my car looks. my marker light is in the plastic front bumper. it is also a different shape it is more of an oval shape, IT IS A 1999 Cavalier. Please look up the correct car this time.
Expert:  Chevy man replied 7 years ago.

The correct car was looked up. I don't take credit for the way these data bases are written.

This is from a different source.

Reply to Chevy man's Post: THIS IS THE CORRECT CAR BUT IT DOES NOT TELL ME HOW TO GET TO #4 THAT IS THE BULB I NEED TO REPLACE I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GET TO THE#4 SHOWN IN THE PICTURE
Expert:  Chevy man replied 7 years ago.
#4 appears to be a grill reinforcement. The instructions state to reach behind the light for the attaching nuts once the headlamp is removed.

Reply to Chevy man's Post: I JUST DID THAT BUT STILL CANNOT GET TO #4 THERE IS A LOT OF BARS AND PLASTIC IN THE WAY CANNOT EVEN GET CLOSE
Expert:  Chevy man replied 7 years ago.
Are you trying to remove the side marker light in the fender or a front turn signal and parking light?

Reply to Chevy man's Post: I AM TRYING TO REMOVE A MARKER LAMP THAT IS IN THE FRONT PLASTIC BUMPER THEIR IS NO RETAINING SCREW IT IS ABOUT 10 INCHES AWAY FROM THE HEADLAMP,TURN SIGNAL, PARKING LITE ASSEMBLY
Expert:  Chevy man replied 7 years ago.

There's your problem. There are no marker lights in the front of the car. That is a turn signal/parking lamp, not a marker light.

Reply to Chevy man's Post: HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE FRONT INNER WHEEL HOUSING, WHAT IS THE FRONT INNER WHEEL HOUSING?? IF I KNEW WHAT IT WAS I MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE IT
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
JUST RECEIVED A EMAIL SAID YOU HAD ANSWERED MY QUESTION BUT THERE WAS NO ANSWER COULD U RESEND
Expert:  Chevy man replied 7 years ago.
The wheel well is the black plastic inside the wheel well and it's held in by very obvious screws. Remove the screws in the front section and pull it back far enough to get our arm in there.
