Hi guys, brand new to the forum here. I've been lurking for a little while since I just bought my first jeep. '95 wrangler in great shape! :) I have looked on the internet but can't find out how to change the turn signal bulbs that is located on the fender? If you guys could help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

the fender bulb in a YJ isnt a turn signal, its only a marker light.

it is a 194 bulb mounted in a rubber twist socket. a quarter turn takes the socket out of the light housing. reach up inside the fender and grab the white rubber that the wires are going into, turn it to the left( righty-tighty, lefty-loosey) a quarter turn and take it out. OR... you can take out the 2 screws that hold the entire light assembly in the fender and access the bulb that way.
on my 95 the fender light is a running and turn signal, and as a matter of fact i just replaced my left one tonight, you go to walmart pick you up a pack of 2 of sylvania 194 bulbs (beats advance and oreilys at 5 dollars for 2), get a Philips head and take the two screws out, slide it out and just just hold the yellow flasher and turn the housing in the back a quarter of a turn and it slides right out, you pull the old bulb out and slide the 194 bulb straight in(i had to clean out the socket and spread the contacts a little bit with a flathead) and then twist the housing back in the flasher, screw in and bamm your done! sorry about the long write out but here ya go!
my marker light was out on my 88. So i bought a new bulb socket. closest i could find was a GM socket that I modified to fit. Of course i didnt check the existing wires when it was aprt to make sure power was coming through, because that would have been too simple. Hooked everything back up and it doesnt light up.

The two wires that attach - is it standard? (ground and power)
