taillights purchased at koreanautoimports.com

parts needed:

old and new:

open the hatch and locate the two screws and remove them:

in order to remove the taillight stock and the replacement you need to push it inward towards the cargo area and then pull out:

when removed this is what you will see (this is the aftermarket taillight so it wont look the same as you stock unit):

use the same photo for a wiring diagram.

notice the black wire will be replaced by the gray one if some one didnt mess up your wiring (little brothers)

when installing the lights you may need to file the cut out inserts tomake them larger for the lights
