    Ok it was pretty easy to install. I have it configured just how you do but they're hanging out. Before I out them in I need clarification on where you felt you needed electrical tape?

    Got it. Seems fine without tape but I'll use some automotive tape just in case.

    Yeah while it seems like it is probably fine without it I just figured it couldn't hurt ... don't need moisture getting in there.

    Re: Side marker lights(front fender)

    And before I break something.. Does it require a good amount of force to get it in??

    No, not really if I recall correctly, they seemed to go in pretty easy for me once I stopped trying to put them together like pictured.

    Re: Side marker lights(front fender)

    Hmm. Well I dropped one of the connectors in the hole so I have to lift the car, remove the wheel well liner and feed the connector back through. I'll put the light back in while the liner is off to make sure I'm clear in the back. But that's tomorrow. Hockey is on.

    Re: Side marker lights(front fender)

    Lifted, removed wheel well liner, put the connector back through, tried to install the light, wouldn't go in because it was hitting in the back. Then I looked back to your post Luda, and I realized I had it flip flopped. I had it configured the way you said would NOT work. I read through the post (113) again and when I read the very last sentence of your post I just laughed. I reconfigured, installed and it's all good. Now I understand the tape. I took pics. I'll upload tonight.

    The vauxhall side repeater LEDs are both leaking. The car is in it's first rain and both of them have a lot of large water droplets on the inside of the lens.
