    Help, how do I get these off?

    How do you get the side markers off the car, the red ones on the side of the rear bumper, and the orange ones on the front bumper, can you pry them out? Do you come at them from under the bumpers, I put a flat head screw driver up in there but was afraid I'd break something so I stopped.

    I want them off so I can tint them with some Nightshade.

    Also how do you get the reverse lights off, do they pop out or do you have to go at them from inside the trunk.

    While we're on the tinting subject does anyone have pictures of their tail lights that have been tinted, not sure if I want to do it until I see a picture.

    If the side markers are anything like others it is going to be a PITA! They most likely snap into the holder. Your best bet is to buy some to replace them. Tint those and screw/break the old ones out. That was the easiest way to get mine out in the Audi.

    Then again the front ones have a light bulb in them so screwing into it might not be the best idea.

    You can get to both sets from under the lens. On the rears stick you hand up there and find the tab to push and they will pop right out. The fronts are the same but you have to drop the belly pan. I have put night shades on both of my sets and the rear back up light.

    P.S. The rears back up lights come out from inside the trunk. There are a couple of bolts holding them in. I think they are 10mm.
