    • Place a 6.35mm or smaller flat-head screwdriver between the black clips and the trunk cover.

    • Pull down on the handle of the screwdriver until the clip comes out of the cover.

    • Removing the clips will require force. There will be a small cracking noise when you have successfully removed the clips. This is normal.

    • Do not lose the black plastic pins. You will use them again when reassembling the trunk interior.

    • Unscrew the three screws that hold the fixture in place.

    • The screw closest to the exterior may be too tight to remove with your hand. In this event use an 11mm wrench to unscrew.

    • Save all the screws that you unscrew. If your replacement light does not provide screws, use the ones that you removed from the previous light.

    • Do not unscrew any screw that is connected to the trunk locking system because doing so may result in hindering the performance of the locking and unlocking mechanism.

    • Press the small button on the end of the electrical connector and pull it away from the main electrical connection of the car.

    • Caution: Make sure that the car is turned off when disconnecting the electrical connection.

    • Disconnecting the electrical connection is similar to unplugging two extension cords.

    • Carefully pull the light housing out of the trunk.

    • Insert the new light into the fitting of the light housing.

    • There will be a thick black rubber-like adhesive material surrounding the edges where the light housing is placed. Do not remove that material. That is the sealant that prevents water from entering the trunk.

    • The light should not require excessive force if placed correctly.

    • Insert the white end of the electrical source wire into the connector attached to the light fixture.

    • This is similar to connecting two extension cords together.

    • Caution: Make sure the vehicle is turned off when reconnecting the electrical connection to the light.

    • Reinsert and tighten all of the screws that you removed in Step 2.

    • You will need an 11mm wrench to tighten the screw on the exterior of the trunk.

    • Make sure that every screw is secure. Any loose screws may risk the light from falling out of its housing.

    • Align the holes on the fabric with the holes on the interior of the car trunk.

    • Push the pins into place.

    • These are the same black plastic clips that we pried out in Step 1.
