What turn signal bulbs are you replaceing?
Where Are they located. As you should not have had to remove all those bolts.
No you do not need to remove the panal.
There is a relaese arm that is inside the engine area near the head lamp. it will look like a trigger sticking out. There is a small button that must be pushed in before you can move the arm.
