Left turn signal

I went to go change my left turn signal bulb on the fender and one of the screws will not come out. It just keeps turning. What the best way for me to get this screw out?

Thanks

I grabbed a small piece of flat metal and pushed it against the back of the screw while screwing it out.. it took some odd positioning reaching around and screwing at the same time. (perverts)

It threads into a rivnut and the rivnut has probably let go. Get in behind it and gently grab the rivnut with vicegrips so that you can turn the screw.

How do I get to the back of the screw? It seems that it is between the fender and the engine compartment/wheel well.

Thanks for the help

I think I know what you are talking about...Do you mean to take the one screw out that I can and try to actually turn the signal up or down to access the hole. Are your thinking the signal by the headlight? That one is ok, it's the one on the side of the fender, it's sqare that I have having a problem with.

well then this will be easier then. Take off the front stuff (i know long) but you will spend 20 min to get your hand where the headlight hole is (and was) and can reach in the fender area to be able to get to all of that. (kindof 1/2 hr job,) but I am only 5"8" and have scrawny forearms so i could get to it ok.
