  • You need to consult a workshop manual because on some cars you have to drop the fender to replace the entire light.

    If you are referring to the bulb, you usually remove the rubber seal on the back of the light, pull off the black connector and release the spring. Then the bulb can be pulled out.

    Be careful not to touch the glass on the new bulb because that reduces its life due to overheating thanks to the oil on your fingers. Wear gloves if possible and take note of where the large tag on the bulb is. Most tags face upwards, but some are facing down and cars like a 2006 Renault Megane are located in the 8:40 position. 

    Hope this helps.

    pop the hood and look at the back of the light.  There's a maybe 2" or 3" round grooved 'tube', black IF I remember right.  that 'tube' will unscrew and the little light bulb will be in it.
