Now its time to tackle the trunk lid lights. You need to remove the cover at each end of the taillight assembly. Be careful as the clips that hold it on can break.
Next remove the torx screw just inside the end of the taillights.
Now remove the 4 plastic retaining nuts and 2 scrivets.
Now comes the hard part if you are doing this alone like I did. Use the heal of you hand and lightly hit the ends of the taillights to pop the assembly loose. Once loose you need to disconnect the wiring connector.
Now take the assembly over to the work bench and install the new harness per the instructions. Be sure to use the retaining clips to hold the wires in place so nothing gets pinched during re-assembly.
Now re-install the taillight assembly in the trunk lid. Here is where a 2nd pair of hands would be nice as you need to install the NEW connecting wires and grommet plus connect the original wiring harness.
Now is the time to check the alignment of your taillights before you tighten down any of the retaining nuts.
Next you need to the install the connecting wire from the trunk lid to the sequencers. I elected to completely remove the trunk panel. Use the panel tool to remove the scrivets.
I decided I wanted to run the wire in the factory loom. So, I cut the tie wraps off and threaded the wire in the loom down to the trunk. I added a tie wrap to loom where the new wires exit the loom to keep the wires from coming out. I then re-install the tie wraps I cut off the factory loom and wal la it looks just like it did before.
I threaded the new wiring harness behind the trunk cover. I took out the scrivet holds the panel in and routed the wire below the hole where the scrivet is placed. This will prevent the wire from coming out from behind the panel. Now is the time to untangle the new wire harness before you install it. Once installed you should be done. Check to make sure all you connections are done before you test the system. Once you test the system you can tie wrap any of the wires to the factory harness to make a nice clean install.
If everything checks out re-install all your panels and tighten the retaining nuts - YOUR DONE!
