Did you look in the Owners Manual?

escape turn signal

yes I did and it says to see the dealer for replacement. I AM NOT STUPID AND DID NOT NEED A RESPONCE LIKE THAT. I SEE YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO REPLACE IT DO YOU? the escape has an inclosed type front light system that is why I asked for help. THANK YOU. If someone does know how to get at this left front turn signal and would tell me I THANK YOU.

Don't get snotty. Owner's manual is a good place to read other then a repair manual. Usually if it's not in the owners manual You can count on it being a big repair.

Read This, Looks like you'll need to remove alot of stuff just to get to the bulb.

Looks like a good saturday project. I guess If I had to replace one turn signal bulb, I would replace both sides. That way hopefully they will both last a couple years.

All I asked is if you read the owners manual-most people don't and replacement of lights is generally in there. Autozone has manuals online-did you try there?
