Tools required:
  • 7mm socket/ratchet with extension

Step 1: Open the vehicle's trunk.

Step 2: Loosen and remove the 7mm mounting bolts (2) exposed by opening the trunk.

These bolts are right next to the tail light assembly.

Step 3: Loosen and remove the thumb-screw that holds the trunk liner over the tail light's connection point.

Step 4: Loosen and remove the thumb-screw that holds the tail light assembly to the vehicle.

Step 5: You can now pull the tail light assembly from the vehicle.

Step 6: Disconnect the tail light's wiring harness.

NOTE: If you ordered your replacement tail light from Go-Parts, it likely includes new sockets/bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not, simply twist the sockets counter-clockwise, and transfer them to the new assembly. This process takes just a few moments!

Step 7: Connect the wiring harness to the new tail light assembly.

Step 8: Mount the new tail light by tightening the 7mm mounting bolts (2) and the thumb-screw (1).

Step 9: Reattach the trunk liner and tighten the thumb-screw.
