Tips on removing turn signals

I’m trying to remove the turn signals and replace them the LED version that I picked up on eBay. I believe are the same as the ones ijdmtoy sells which require their own glossy black fog light bezel.
I tried to follow the instructions in this thread:
http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/f-q-2013/336164-front-turn-signal-assembly-removal-diy.html

I’m stuck on step 4 which is the part when the fog light bezel has been removed revealing the 10mm bolt holding the turn signal in place.

Not sure if kemer1 or anyone else can shed some details on how to pull the turn signal out after removing the 10mm bolt. It doesn’t seem to budge. I tried pushing it out from going underneath the splash shield and pulling up and down from the side closest to the grille.

Really appreciate any help. I made the video on removing the Altima tail lights and am in the process of doing a video on installing fog lights, LED turn signals, and LED headlight bulbs.

Here is the video on the tail light removal for anyone interested.

If your just replacing the bulbs you can get the off from under the car take the plastic skid plate cover off from under the bumper and you can see the bulbs just turn and remove. If you want to remove the whole thing just give it a tug there’s like a tab that holds it in of the side closer to the outside you can kinda see it on the link your post had. There might be one more bolt that holds it but it’s been such a long time since I pulled those off. If your doing led your going to need resistors or you will get hyper flash with the LEDs.

No I damaged one when I took mine off. I had this blue hot glue that’s for car audio that’s really strong I used to glue the tab back together. Mine just broke on one end not completely off. That’s why I would suggest not removing them unless you have too. Or push the clips free from the inside of the bumper which isn’t easy either.

yea there is a 10mm bolt and a tab. That tab is holding it in quite tight. So give it a tug, do you mean use as much force as possible? Not sure if you remember but do I pull straight towards me or do I need to angle it then pull? Thanks!!

Yea it was a pain to get that fog light bezel out. I busted one clip but the remaining 5 were fine.

I had a 2007 Sentra SL as my first car & daily driver before getting the GTR. Almost reached the 9 year mark but hit a bad pot hole and messed up the suspension and cracked a rim. Ended up trading in for a 2015 Altima S Special Edition to be my daily driver and winter warrior. Although the GTR is quite good in the snow with winter tires, I don’t want expose it to salt or the elements. I even keep it out of the rain when I can.

The Altima is about 2 months old, got Lumar 35% tints on, Katskin Leather with red accents, plastidipped lower bumper and lower grille black with red accent, LED reverse lights, LED license lights, Nissan Stainless Steel license plate frame, and just installed Opt7 LED headlight bulbs. Doing the fog light kit and LED turnsignals now, then swapping out the steering wheel with an OEM leather wheel. I’ll start a new thread & post pix later once I get the turn signal project done. :grin
