The side marker simply slides to the side and then pulls out but I have not been able to find a replacement bulb yet so I have left it alone...

Try harder. And then try to pull it away from the fender panel. 1/8" is about right. Pull it away from the fender panel on the side nearest to the front end of the car.

The side marker light is a 1157? I think you are confusing the question for the turn signal light - I need the part number for the side marker light that is on the side of the vehicle in front of the door panel.
