Removal and Installation

  1. Position trunk room trim aside.
  2. Disconnect rear combination lamp connector.
  3. Remove rear combination lamp mounting nuts.
  4. Pull rear combination lamp to remove from the vehicle.

Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

I did all this before I came to you and it is still not coming off. It seems to be held up by (3) tab looking things further into the trunk near the outside fender. I do not want to force it and break something. Can you help me?
Hello, once you have all the nuts removed you will need to pull hard on the lens. They use push clips on the outer side of the lens. As long as you apply an even amount of force you will not damage anything.
