Step 1: Press the rear end of the side marker light in, and pry out with the flathead screwdriver on the front end.
Step 2: You can now pull the side marker light from the vehicle.
Step 3: Disconnect the marker light's wiring harness.
NOTE: Not all models use wiring plugs for the side marker lights. If your particular model does not, simply twist the socket/bulb counter-clockwise and remove it from the existing assembly.
Step 4: Connect the wiring harness (or socket/bulb) to the new assembly.
Step 5: Insert the side marker assembly into place, and slide toward the front of the vehicle.
Sliding it toward the front of the vehicle ensures that it is properly attached.
