Step 2: Loosen and remove the T27 screw located beneath the exterior tail light lens.
A flathead screwdriver will also work!
Step 3: You can now remove the tail light assembly.
Step 4: Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the assembly.
NOTE: If you ordered your replacement tail light assembly from Go-Parts, it likely includes new bulbs, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, if your particular model does not include new bulbs, simply turn the sockets counter-clockwise, remove them from the old assembly, and attach them to the new one. This process only takes a few moments!
Step 5: Connect the wiring harnesses to the new tail light assembly.
Step 6: Mount the new tail light by tightening the T27 mounting screw.
