I'd like to check out the side marker bulb but I'm not sure how to get at it. Would I pull out the wires from the back or do I need to remove the 2 screws that attach the light to the fender?

I received the Ron Francis wiring diagram today so have a better idea as to what is connected to what but at this point still no parking or side marker lights (except when the headlights are on). I can see the appropriate wires are running to the parking lights and the side marker lights. Not sure at this point if they are  attached to the correct terminal on the light switch. I've been hoping that I will not have to remove the switch but I probably will have to. The switch itself is actually supplied by Ron Francis.

I'm assuming the led lights being used as parking bulbs are not causing any issues.

Thanks.

68, 69 AMX doesn't have replaceable bulbs in the front markers.
If it blows out, just go to the dealer and pick up another lampLOL

I you want to test the bulb in the side marker I'd suggest simply unplug the connector from the back and use a ohm meter to check for continuity or a pair of clip leads and a 9 volt battery to verify the bulb is good. These are one piece and they simply snap in the chrome frames from the front side. If you try to pop them out from the rear you're likely to snap off the ends of the amber lens when doing so as they become brittle with age.
