bumper lens removal

Does anyone know of a DIY or a tutorial to removing and installing the bumper lenses? I am stumped on it.

Thanks a lot

Brad

Re: bumper lens removal

there prob is but they are so easy they really dont need one. There is one screw holding each one on. look in the ft grille area on the inside of each lenz there is a philips head screw going inward. remove screw and gently pry light outwards. pretty easy job

Re: bumper lens removal

That would make sense.


How do you get at the screw from the inside? I've always wondered that.

I thought he was talking about the ft turn signal lens in the bumper. Why would he be stumped on how to remove the side ones???? The screw is right there in plain sight and it goes right through the outer part of the lens itself. The ft turn signal lens are a little more tricky and the screws are hidden on them in the ft grille on the side of the lens.

Re: bumper lens removal

I'm really confused as to what he meant. And the side marker screws are not really in plain sight, as far as I can tell, but then again I've never really had the motivation to look for it.

Re: bumper lens removal



use a philips screw driver and take that screw out and it should pop right out. It takes like 3 minutes max. Very very easy to do bro. Installs the same way you took them off.
