While parked at home center, high winds and a runaway shopping cart created a cracked lens on the turn signal.
Consequently, water got into turn signal housing and now there's a short. (Still works) but flashes more rapidly than normal.
One thing I learned about vehicle is that the instrument cluster shows exact light/ turn signal which is faulty.
I've searched internet for video on how to replace, but there is only How -To video on older models
Because turn signal is mounted in the rear bumper there is no way that I can see to remove housing without taking part of the rear bumper apart!

Unfortunately I think that what you will need to do. Get under the back of the truck and see if there is anything that can be removed from the bottom/underneath.

I agree. I was looking for u-tube video on how to remove the bumper and other cosmetic facia/trim pieces in the right sequence but haven't found any links or how to videos.

My related question is why the heck put the turn signals that low, and not amber, at least? What's wrong with doubling the brake lights as turn-signal lights? That has been done for decades. Just curious. Thx.

Removing a bumper is A BIG DEAL, not to be done by most owners, All the sensors have to be disconnected and tested after reconnection. Had my 2015 Hyundai Genesis rear bumper repaired after a MINOR scratch, $900, mostly removal and replacement.
