Side Marker Removal walk through

OK guys and girls, Here is a walk through of how to remove your side markers. Take your time dont get in a rush... and Be gentle dont break any tabs off you will need them when you put your car back together.

Step one remove the 3 push pin holders in the wheel well.

Step two remove the five 7mm bolts from the bottom scroud and let it hang as shown, gives you more work room... work smarter not harder...

Step three find the four tabs holding the fog light chrome bezel. hard to see in this picture but the picture of the bezel removed you will see where to look for the tabs

Here is a shot of the front of fog light after bezel is removed, to will see where to look for the locking tabs that hold the bezel to the front of the car.

Here is a shot of the back of the bezel to see the locking tabs.

now that you have the bezel removed you have access to front retaining bolt for side marker, the bolt is a 7/32

now you locate the 10mm nut on the plastic stud.

10mm bolt removed

Push on plastic stud on back of side marker and your side marker is removed

You will have to reuse the locking clip from your oem lights on the ends of the new lights.

And repeat on the other side.

Hope this helps I know having this would of help me so I hope I was able to help anyone looking to replace there side marker lights.

Re: Side Marker Removal walk through

I tried this a long time ago. I gave up because the locking bezzels on the chrome trim are harder to remove than it looks.
I will try again.
