HOW TO... remove puddle lamp lens for LED bulb replacement. (PICS of end result)
Wondering how the heck you get the lens off the puddle lamps underneath the side view mirrors on the SEL cars so that I can replace buls with bright white LEDs? I'm afraid of breaking the darn things, and hoping someone can fill me in on this. Thanks
Found the process doing a Google search:
Take the mirror and angle it down as far as possible. Then take the top end (now sticking out past the housing) and pull directly back toward you as you pull up. I know it seems like you are going to shatter your mirror but your not going to. Be careful of the wires that are attached the the mirror heater as they aren't all that long! Then take a flat screwdriver and push the clip towards the housing surrounding the light bulb so that it can be pushed down out the bottom of mirror housing. Once the light housing is free from the inside of the mirror housing just give the gray bulb holder a 1/4 turn and it pops out with the bulb. Bulb just pulls right out.
