    The rear dome light you just pull down, then there is a tab on each plug you life with your finger nail or small screw driver and the plug slides right out. DO both of them then you are good to go

    Where did you mount the ballasts?

    Thanks but there wasn't enough room on mine to undo the clips in the front...I unscrewed the parking assist led strip from the back, took the clips out and the whole unit was free. Maybe my car wasn't built with enough slack in the wiring...

    Had to disconnect reverse sensor light connector first. I then had to disconnect connectors to both lights. Yes, this not EASY. The wires are not long enough to make the job easy

    In the process of taking the bulb and putting new one in you might have expanded the copper spring loaded contacts. I used pointy screw driver to pull the together. Also try putting the LEDs with alternate direction ... poles.

    Makes sense...it would have been a lot easier for me if the led strip wasn't there but was still worth the hassle.
