They pop out fairly easily. You just insert a trim tool towards the center of the bumper. While facing the bumper, looking at the passenger side cover, insert a tool (pry bar, paint can lid opener, pry bar) at the three o'clock position and pull it out. For the drivers side its the 9 oclock position.

Pop em out. I think I popped mine out from behind. Im not sure if you can get them out from the front. So you have to remove the underside panel to work on that portion of the headlights

So they do just pull out? I didn't want to remove the under belly since my car is so damn low. I need 2x6's to jack it with a low profile jack. :p

are you trying to take out the front reflectors?(corner lights) (turn signals) or whatever they are called?-__-
Yes. Damn... So yeah they pop out you just insert a trim tool towards the center.

Facing the bumper looking at the passenger side cover insert tool at the three o'clock position and pull it out. For the drivers side its the 9 oclock position.


Anyone popped out the reflectors? I tried felling around for how they are attached and I think that you have to take the bumper off to pop them out.

Sure I would be interested. I am not sure what is needed for the retro-fit. I know that I would need to knob.

i popped out my reflectors n tinted them my self pretty simple..

your reflectores have 2 nuts in the back, wich are holding them in place..
what you have to do(what i did) is remore the first 4 or 3 bolts holding the plastic part on the inside of the fender wich will gain you acces to the back part of your reflectors. i think the size of the nuts is a 10mm once you remove the nuts it should pop right off from there on out you just unplug it n walla its off with out having to take off your bumper. once you tint them you will never regret it they look sooooo much more better.


sorry for the long explenation im not the brightest kid ever when it comes to explaining stuff.lol

Thanks I actually just found a PDF with installation instructions of tinted side-markers. Same technique that you did.

That was plan B for me, since going through the fogs seemed easier.

99% of the time you have to remove the bumper for the rear.

5% of cars you can pop the reflector out through the fog light, so I though I'd give it a try.

I technically still could pop them out through the fog, but I have big hands and it is tight in there.

I'll give it a try.

I'll just do about 4 of Nightshades, looks black but still gets light.

I removed my bumper last night. You have to remove the rear bumper to get to them.

Got any younger siblings or neighbor kids you could get some help from (that understands how a wrench/ratchet works)? I've got pretty small hands but I'm not close enough to help you out :( :p
