2.) Pop open the covers (they are marked with a picture of a light bulb) Use the screwdriver to remove
IPB Image

3.) There are only 3 that you need to remove
IPB Image

4.)Use the 10mm Socket to unscrew the bolts holding the tails on
IPB Image

5.) TIP: Once it comes loose, use the socket without the ratchet to manually turn and remove the nuts

6.) Carefully wedge loose the tails using the screwdriver
IPB Image

7.) Remove Tails
IPB Image

8.) Bulb Layout for OEM tails (the JDM tails are on the bottom)
IPB Image

9.) Remove bulbs
IPB Image

10.) JDM Tails with bulbs placed (The bulbs really only go in at certain spots so you really can't "mix" the bulbs
IPB Image

11.) There is one bulb that is not used on the JDM Tails, I just removed the bulb
IPB Image

12.) Place the tails back... Insert nuts into socket. Re-screw tails in.
IPB Image

13.) Place the covers back, and your done

I had a hard time trying to remove the OEM tails with out trying to "pry" it loose, if you want to be more careful, you can use a plastic knife.

it seems like he decided to do the write up after having the tails already installed.

nice write up btw. i took off the rear plastic panel (and loosened the rear corner panels) and for step 6, i pushed the metal threading to help push the old tails out.


also, i pulled out the usdm ones and kept the jdm ones.

I would like to keep it that way =/.

I think him having the JDM tails already on kinda threw me off...

or you could just push on the metal studs the nuts were on in the back of the taillight housing like i did when ever i change my lights. that way you eliminate all risk of scratching your paint, or chipping the plastic on the taillight housing. biggrin.gif
