Thanks for your clarification, and thanks to SteveH for pointing me to that site. I was confused by the diagram in the manual, which referred to "turn signal light/side marker" as if it were one bulb. Anyway, once I removed the light assembly I could clearly see that it was two separate bulbs.

By the way, after tax the dealer wanted $6.78 per bulb + $11.30 per side for labor = $36.16 total. I got the replacement bulbs at Partsource for $2.14 (or $1.07 each). (Yep, that's a 500% dealer mark-up on the bulbs.) Took me about 15 mins. to replace them.

Are these bulbs supposed to illuminate (more dimly) when the lights are on, because they're not. But why would they work otherwise? Clearly the bulbs are not burned out. Any insight into this would be appreciated.
I just checked mine again and as soon as you switch the headlights on either parking or main beams the side markers are on. The only reason I checked it again, I was passing another 07 on the road with its lights on and both of their sidemarkers were out.

Looking at lovemysantafe's picture, it looks to be so. However, I don't understand why mine don't, but the turn signals work fine. If the bulb were burned out, wouldn't it be... well, burned out? I suppose I can just go ahead and replace them, but don't want to go to the trouble and expense if they are in fact working normally.



SteveH, the dealer wants to charge $10 labor per bulb. I don't think that is unusual. But that is $20 + tax that I can save by doing it myself.
I too have a 2007 the picture you added was clearly not what I have. I have two lamps for the brake, 1 for the turn signals and 1 all the way up on the side towrd the front as a sidemarker that only comes on as with the headlights on. As stated below its probably a 168 and if both sides are out you may a more serious problem, an easy test is just get a new 168 and follow the directions on the link I sent to try replacing it yourself. The only thing I can think is that when they say shared its in the same lens housing but are clearly two seperate bulbs. Again Im just speaking to the 07 that I have not sure what they did in the following years.

The rear side marker is one of 4 lamps on each side. The side marker only comes on when you have the headlights on. The one lamp that flashes when you lock the door is the same one that flashes for the turn signal. Again the side marker is just in front of the turn signal lamp.

I just looked at the 2007 Owner Manual (I assume it's the same for 2007 to 2009) and it looks like for those year, the turn signal and side marker are combined, as shown in Page 26 of Chapter 6. (Sorry, was unable to copy the picture)

They are seperate bulbs in the 2010+

Here's a picture of mine just before I got rid of it...you can see the reflector area is lit up red on the rear cluster:
