Default Front turn signal bulb change

I have a 2011. Trying to change out the front turn signal bulbs to a clear bulb that still flashes amber. Any tips on changing the bulbs out? My hands are too big to reach the the bulbs from the engine bay. Thanks.

On my 2007 I go from under the car, works much better that way. Drive up on some ramps and you'll have plenty of room.

Chromed bulbs that light up amber are easy to find. I usually get mine on fleabay.

I can't speak for the 2011's but the 05 thru 10 can be easily reached from under the front facade.

Thanks for the replies. Hope it's the same way to do it for my car. How hard can it be?

If you're too fat to crawl and reach from underneath, get someone else to do it for you.

Ok, I got it. I was just being a bitch. Just reach your hand from the top and do it. The passenger side was a bit tough if you have big hands but I eventually got it.
