Step 1: Using your hands, press the side marker light assembly to the rear of the vehicle, and it will pop out of its position.
Step 2: Disconnect the wiring harness on the back of the side marker light assembly.
NOTE: Not all models use wiring plugs for side marker lights. If your particular model does not, simply twist the socket/bulb counter-clockwise to remove it from the existing assembly.
Step 3: Connect the wiring harness to the new side marker assembly.
Step 4: Slide the side marker assembly into place.
You will hear the retaining clip "snap" into place.
