2000 Pontiac firebird front turn signal light bulb replacement

Vehicle: 2000 Pontiac Firebird Formula
Symptoms: when signaling a turn, the blinker inside the car on the dashboard does not blink, but remains solid all the time.
Problem: the turn signal light bulb is out
Light bulb part: 3157NA (amber color). Light bulb reference: http://ls1tech.com/forums/appearance-detailing/1398916-official-4th-gen-f-body-light-bulb-list.html
Procedure:
1. Unscrew two bolts on the bottom of the car on the side where you're trying to replace the light bulb. The socket is a metric 10 I believe. Then plastic flap will be able to swing freely.
2. Insert your hand in the opening and twist the light bulb (with wires) from the housing. The wire is long enough to extend light bulb to the opening.
3. Remove light bulb.
Reverse the procedure to install the light bulb. No need to get under the vehicle for this repair.

O'Reilly Auto Parts did not have LED versions of the bulb, only regular.
The cost was around $6 for a pair of light bulbs.
