Step 2: Open the trunk liner door that covers the tail light's mounting area.
Step 3: Pull and remove the bulb panel attached to the back of the tail light assembly.
NOTE: If you ordered your replacement tail light from Go-Parts, it likely includes the bulb panel, as many of our models do. If your particular model does, disconnect the wiring harness from the existing bulb panel, as we won't need it. If not, move on with the installation.
Step 4: Loosen and remove the 8mm mounting bolts (4) that hold the tail light to the vehicle.
Step 5: You can now remove the tail light.
Step 6: Mount the new tail light by tightening the 8mm mounting bolts (8).
Use the guiding tab on the tail light assembly to ensure proper positioning and installation.
Step 7: Attach the bulb panel (or connect the wiring harness).
Step 8: Cover the mounting area by reattaching the trunk liner door.
