Hi Brian, you will need to remove the mirror cover in order to replace the turn signal. Use a long thin screwdriver to depress the tab behind the mirror glass to release the cover. Copy and paste the instructions for removing the cover below. I've also posted a link to a video that might help. In the video he removed the mirror glass but that is not necessary. With the glass removed it clearly shows the tab that you need to depress.
