Installation Process: OEM Light Removal

It is highly recommended that you disconnect the battery prior to installing this modification as improper installation could damage electrical parts!

To begin the installation of the new LED Taillights start by popping the trunk of your car and unhooking the cargo net from the driver side area of the trunk space. Once that is moved out of the way, begin unclipping the various clips and finish pieces to gain access to the mounting area. With a flat head screw driver carefully pry off the wiring harness clip from the now exposed 10mm fasteners. Loosening these two(2) nuts will now allow you to firmly take hold of the light as depicted in the pictures below and give a solid but cautious tug straight out to dislodge the light from the body of the car. Disconnect all light bulbs from the assembly and place it aside.


Installation Process: LED Taillight Installation

Now that you have the OEM light assemblies aside, remove the body paneling from them to transfer over to your new LED assemblies. This procedure requires just a Philips screw driver to remove the 4 mounting screws. Replace the body panel onto the new unit and screw in reverse order. To complete the installation of the unit you will need to remove all the factory bulbs from their sockets on the OEM harness because we will not be using them other than the reverse light bulbs. Now to match the OEM harness to the supplied LED harness (Red to Green/White --- Black to White/Black). Once complete you may now replace the new units onto the car but do not secure them just yet, test to make sure the system is fully functioning and secure it in place. Reinstall the taillight assembly and proceed to the other side, repeat.
