This has been discussed

It isnt that easy. There is no way I can get my hand up there. The side of the gas tank is there along with a lotta other shit? Is there any other way or anything that makes it easier?

open the fender liner in the back just like you did the front. why have you not tried this? the only extra work is to take off the wheel.

u better +rep me for this.


=D

take off the wheel, to make it a tad bit easier, not a must.

anyways. for driver side of car, example:

go towars back or tire, there are about 2 or 3 of those black dime sized clips that hold the fender liner. take them all off. then remove the fender liner. look sumwhere under the fender liner(the one u just took off), and now u have 2 options:

1.) Go through the top of the rear bumper/side of it.
or
2.) Go under neath the car.

be assured that either way, u will lose circulation in ur forearm, unless ur a fully grown, but anorrhexic guy. i know i spelled that wrong.

anyways.

if u go through the top or side, u will have less shit fly into ur eyes and nose.
u can go under, u will see better, but u need to have a light pointed upwards.

either way, make sure u pull the wire/bulb through the front of the bumper first, then put the bulb into the new lense. dont screw the lense in to the bumper first, then put the bulb in. after u pulled the bulb out through the hole in the front bumper, scrwe it into the lense, then just slide the lense into the slot. then after that just screw the thing onto the lense with ur hand from inside the rear bumper. repeat for both sides of the rears.

hope this helps, and good luck. took me about 2 hours for the fronts and rears total. the fronts only took like 10 minutes though.
