The turn signals are pretty easy to change, although they are hard to reach. Just stick your hand as far over to the right or left as you can (depending on which side turn signal) and feel for a piece of plastic that is shaped kind of like a fin. Just twist that, and it will come right out (The bulb is attached to the fin part). Swap out the bulbs, and repeat the reverse process. The side with the airbox (at least in the V6) is kinda tight, so you may want to find someone with small hands to do it.
