Smoked tail ideas needed....

I've been searching but I cant seem to find a "how-to" on rear light removal. I want to remove these ASAP so I can wash them with the VHT Nighshades. <BR><BR>

Re: HELP!. Tail light removal... (GetDown)

easyyyyyyyy... did mine last week when i tinted my tail lights<p><br>remove the cover for the tail lights<p>unplug the light bulbs<p>get a size 8 or size 10 (cant remember) socket with with a 1/4 inch rachet<p>and unscrew 3 nuts on the corners. keep your hand on the tail light so it doesnt fall out. <p>you should be good to go.<p>and remember, when you wash your tail lights, get all the water out, your gonna look like a civic if you leave water in them lol

Re: (GetDown)

when you pop your trunk...<p>lets say you want the right side out first for example<p>there is a cover. you squeze it and it comes right off<p>unplug the bracket for the light bulbs<p>and if you get a flash light, you'll see 3 small nuts hold the tail light on.<p>take the right sized socket and loosen them just a little but where its loose enough so you can take it out by hand.<p>just hold the tail light, then once all 3 nuts are off, you can just slide the tail light right out.<p>any other way is wrong and wont work.

Re: (nme95k)

i believe the thing you're reffering to, to pop off, is the cover for everything in the trunk<p>so yes, pop it off. no way that can break

you got it done yet?<p><br>out of all of the things to do to the volvo, this was the easiest.. lol...<p><br>just look inside behind the cover in the trunk, you'll see 3 nuts. they are on screws bolted onto the tail light, and the cars metal is between them...<p><br>take your time. <p><br>i'd take mine out and post pics of how to.. but i already started my 2 - tone.

You need a 10mm socket, and I took off some of the trunk liner in order to get a better angle to unscrew the nuts.<p>I remember there being 4 nuts, but my memory often fails me haha

Re: HELP!. Tail light removal... (GetDown)

Success! Finally, so on top of today being my last day of high school EVER im ready to smoke my tails. I was thinking of just smoking the white part a little so it matches my grey car and maybe a lighter coat on the red. I could still go all black. what do you guys think?<p> <IMG SRC="http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/1180/taailtint.jpg" BORDER="0">
