FIX: Front Turn Signal Issues

I recently (for the past year and a half) have been having problems with my front turn signal not working at all despite having a good bulb and fuse (AND good ground connections AND everything else seeming to work properly). At least one other person has had this problem:

right turn signal help

After removing the housing (which was a PITA until I realized it was really simple to remove) and inspecting the wiring on the harness, it seemed that one of the wires on the inside of the housing had unattached from the bulb socket. The problem was not readily visible, but was fixed by soldering the wire to the side of the housing. I decided this solution was better than paying Nissan $121 for a new housing.

I have more detailed pictures and instructions here:

Hopefully this helps some people!
