Step 1: Push in on the front end of the side marker light, and slide it toward the front of the vehicle.
This will disengage the retaining clip and allow you to remove the side marker light assembly.
Step 2: Disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the side marker light assembly.
NOTE: Not all models use wiring plugs for the side marker lights. If your particular model does not, simply turn the socket/bulb counter-clockwise to remove it from the existing assembly.
Step 3: Connect the wiring harness to the new side marker light assembly.
Step 4: Mount the new side marker assembly by sliding it back into position.
Slide the assembly toward the FRONT of the vehicle first, and when back into position. You should hear the retaining clip "snap" into place.
