DIY: Inner Trunk Light Removal Tutorial (with pics)

Postby lextasyis300 » Sun Jan 04, 2009 3:14 pm

Here's how I do it, if you have any questions or comments, just post them up


Tools Needed:
Socket Wrench
10mm Socket


Step One:

Image

You have to pull these black push screws...just slip something behind the carpet and pull down, they make a tool for this type of stuff, and I have it and used it, but forgot to get a pic of it...maybe I will get it tomorrow

Step Two:

Pull the carpet covering off the trunk and from around the trunk release. Just give it a good pull, it will come off

Step Three:

Image

Look at the light, its right there.

Step Four:

Image
Image

Remove the bolt, its a 10mm. And notice the plastic tabs just behind the screw.

Step Five:

Image

Pinch tabs together and push up on the light...it will pop out.

Step Six:

Image

Your light is now out, you are free to change the bulb, install your new clear/smoked lenses, or just leave them off completely and look stupid with holes in your trunk.

Reverse these steps to reinstall
