removing bumper lights ..

I just got the car, it didn't come with a physical manual ... and i was trying to find out the best way to pry them out, and was hoping to understand where the tabs were so as not to break them.



look in the manual or just pry them out

On the '03 take a thin small bladed screw driver and gently pry the back of the marker light up and forward. To make sure that you don't scratch the paint put 2 layers of masking tape at the back on the body before you start to use the screw driver.

If you are really anal you can remove the front fender liner and remove the light from the inside.
