CORNER MARKER LIGHT INSTALL
Written by Mustangworld.
you get for $69 bucks to change the looks of your stang? You can install
a set of clear corner marker lights. These units are available from different
places, look around, we got ours from BBK.
perhaps the easiest install you will ever do on your Mustang. It installs
HERE WE GO!
Here's what they look like. Clear Corner marker
lights. The bulbs inside your stang are still yellow, so having
these corner markers in place changes the look of your stang more
during the day. At night, the yellow bulbs (which are mandatory)
Looking at the back side of the light, you can
see the two snap locations, plastic guide rod and the bolting
location. This unit is held in place with only one bolt and 2
Looking at the stock light setup with the amber
corner marker. Let's get into the installation. Go ahead and pop
your hood. Disconnect the battery if you want, we didn't, installation
is a total breeze.
First, unscrew that funny looking plastic bolt
near the sides of your stang. It is holding down the plastic panel
pop. Located above the lights. It unscrews easily, and when re-installed,
it may feel like you stripped it, but it's in fact normal for
it to spin even after it's down.
Next with one finger holding the plastic panel
pop, lift the plastic cover off. Make sure you hold the plastic
panel pop (remember you removed the bolt in the pervious step),
or it may fly into your eye, or across the floor and you may loose
it. Then you can remove it to leave only a hole (like you see
in the photo).
Look in and you will see the one and only bolt/nut
holding the corner marker light assembly in place. Get a wrench
with socket extension and remove the nut.
wedge your fingers around the light assembly and simply "pop"
it off. It might seem like you are about to brake it, but be
careful and it will eventually come loose. Pull gently, remember
it's still connected to a light so you don't want to pull it
to far out.
Now you can remove the light bulb by simply turning
it, then pulling it. Then, re-install it into the new light assembly.
The bulb is amber colored (required by most states to be amber
in color). This is your blinker light.
Once the bulb is installed, you can line up the
plastic guide rod and steel snaps then push the new assembly into
place until you hear it "pop" into place. Then bolt
Next time, see ya on the street !
