Have to remove bumper to replace bulb?

Ok, now another glitch after 15 days of ownership. My right front blinker is out. Took it to service and was told they have to remove the front bumper to replace the bulb! Not happy about that. Will be dropping it off tomorrow for service on Monday. Giving me a Camaro loaner of course. Having the bulb replaced, the ding/dent removed, the front license plate bracket put on (the law in NJ I will definitely get tickets) and they owe me a wash so that will get done too. I love this car and hope this is not an indication of things to come.

One of my rear blinkers went out...so proud of myself...changed it BUT then couldn't get it back in. Hours of frustration...scraped fat hands. Then my son did it in under 10 minutes. Mom...the wire gets connected AFTER you get the bulb back in place. Oh yea...thanks Michael

don't do the license plate holder!!!! There are a bunch of holders available that you do not have to screw into your bumper ... look into those first ... I'm in VA and have to have a front holder and didn't know anything about the others available, so now I have a holder, but I also have holes in my front fascia ... wish I had known
