Okay, since we DO have some new guys/gals coming on here everyday, and some of them are even new to the whole 'modifying' game, like I was. I have decided to do a DIY for removing the Tail lights.

Tools:

Socket Wrench
10mm Socket
Socket Extender
Your Fingers

First, Assemble your Socket Wrench with the extender and the 10mm Socket.

Then Open your hatch and remove the little access door to your wiring.

Locate the two bolts (this is a pic of the top, and hardest to get at one) and lossen them up.

OEM-Then unplug the wires from the back of the housing, and pull the tails off.
NO PIC AVAILABLE BECAUSE I HAVE LED TAILS

LED TAILS- Unhook the wires, and pull off.

Nice job Sam. A little helpful hint...when you are loosening or tightening the nuts, apply pressure to the tail light housing and it will make it easier to turn the nuts. You can also get a much better seal if you apply the pressure when re-installing the tail lights.

There are two bolts. 10mm. It's too hard to get a picture of the second one, it's too far down and back. You can reach your hand back there and feel it though.

Yes, I only took a pic of the top one, because it is the hardest to get to, the first one is right there, I just could not get my camera at the right angle to take a pic of it.

I used photobucket....uploaded the images, then when uploaded, the thumbnail has three lines under it, copy and paste the third line of text into here.... dont use the 'attatch images' function. The third line of text should look something like this: [ IMG]http://www.clubxb.com/sirscion/haginflagin.jpg[IMG ] *of course without the spaces
