Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

On these markers here, they actually, see one side pushes in, push it in and use the small screw driver and work it into this, over here. Pry that way so you don't hurt your paint, then the light pops out. Disconnect it and your bulb just comes out. You want to push this right in.

New lights from 1A Auto if you've broken one. They're designed just like the original. Put the light in. Then force the harness back in. Put the light basically in place with this side is still on and push this side in. Slide it back, push this side in, slide it forward. You may need to cork your screw driver in. Just push it in, pry it, pull the screwdriver out. We may need to do that a couple of times. That's in place.
