How do I remove the corner lights?

I took out the headlights today, and I THINK there is a screw behind that... do I have to remove anything, or whats up? I'm having ZERO luck figuring this out...

to take out the corner lights? There is one screw for each on the front below the molding. It holds in them and the molding, nothing behind them

I assume you're talking about a 5th gen?
There is one screw on each corner, right under the faux carbon fiber trim, look under the trim, right above the bumper. Unscrew that (it's a very long screw), and then slide the corner light straight out. The light will hang from the wiring harness. Turn the plug, and you're done.
You don't need to remove the headlight to get the corners off.

Looking at the front of the car, there is a screw in the front corner of the lamp - its kind of hidden under the centre grill section above the bumper and right in the corner. Hope that makes sense! Unscrew that and then you should be able to pull the lamp straight out towards the front of the car. Only thing that would be holding it afetr that will be the wiring, this is just a simple twist and pull fitting.
Hope that helps. :)

Ahhhhhhhhhh, well, see, there is a TON of snow on the car, so I didn't see that screw! Hahaha!

12-19-2007, 11:09 PM

12-19-2007, 11:25 PM

Ok, another question, I know I'll get ragged for it, but how do I install a short throw shifter, I bought one off of eBay (money low, wanted shorter throw) anyways, and it don't come w/ instructions....

Any one wanna help me?

Remove your console, undo the bolts holding the top plate on, remove the cup, undo the pins holding the cables to the shifter, put it all back together.

Go get some lithium grease and lube it up real good.

Takes about 15 minutes.

argh, its not making any sense to me, i mean, it does... then it doesn't...

12-26-2007, 04:57 AM
i got the assembly out, noe hpw do i remove shifter arm???

12-26-2007, 04:58 AM
Go out and take your console apart. Look at it from all angles, then start dismantling slowly, you will figure it out.

*stares at assembly*

This doesn't make any sense, like, I can see where I THINK it has to be removed from, but how do I disassemble it?

The TWM website has a nice writeup with pictures. I'm sure you can adapt the instructions to fit your installation.

thanks! that link makes a world of difference!

Ok, so I got it all switched out, and everything, now when you guys say that the center assembly needs to be lifted a little to fit, do you mean the whoel thing that attached to the floor?

Cuz that's all I can think of that would make sense...
