Have a 99 GL1500 with a turn light out on the lower part front (not turn signal) and have no idea how to access to replace.

HUH?!?!
My buddy brought me his 1800 to change out the headlamp bulbs...I reached in with my hand, removed the rubber booty, removed the plug, released the spring retainer, replaced the bulb, reset the retainer, installed the booty, and plugged the wires back in without any tools and in a matter of minutes....

or so I thought?
Keep the rubber side down.

The low beams can be done like that (Although I have big hands and it was very awkward), but the hi beams are more hassle!!
