clear corners 05 (small write up too with pics)
k so i took order on my clear corners and it came in like 2 weeks later...
here is a before and after shots... took about 2 hours, but i did also clean my messy rims in there....
ok so i started out with the passenger side cuz i figured it would be easier....
~started out jacked the car up and took the wheel off
~then took all the screws out of the wheel well cover
~ got me to this point
~ unscrewed the little nut things that were holding it in and unclipped it
~ from there unhook the light, replace the bulb and put the new lense in and reverse everything you just did... grab a drink... (in my case a coke and relax for a second...)
OR clean your rim like i did

now to the other side... a bit more pics here...
~ again jack it up and take the wheel off
~ take the screws out
http://img78.imageshack.us/img78/526...s0179hf.th.jpg the one that had me tricked... couldnt find it... its the empty hole not the other...
~ yank the thing on outa there.... carefully
~ CRAM your hand in there... i dont have small hands and i made it work...just takes a bit of working on it... and for the other end i used a sawed off 13mm to get at it... made easy work of it...
~ if you unhook the light and kinda cram it upward you have about another inch or so of access to the nut...
~ un clip it and pop it on outa there...
~ replace... CAREFULLY i broke the freakin clip that holds it in cuz its a tight fit and i tapped it and it cracked off so i had to really make sure the nuts on the back were tight to hold her in place...
~ put it all back together and your done...
end result, after 2 hours, clear corners, clean rims, and a shorty antenna....
comments welcomed... im looking at the color matched front grill and a DROP asap... thanks for takin a look [thumb]
Good stuff, Im gonna be doing the same thing soon as mine get here, so its glad to see a fresh write up on the subject [thumb]
Where did you order them from? website, cost? shipping? I need some.
i bought mine on ebay for 18 shipped
i installed mine last night and you really dont need to take the fender well out that far, only up to the second clip or bolt
i got em on e-bay for like 20something shipped... and i took the whole fender well out cuz it just made it easier.... and they were really dirty so i hosed them off [thumbs]
I'll add this into the HOW TO ARCHIVE.... thanks for posting it up!!
And if you do the "Stealth CAI" at the same time its a WHOLE lot easier.
No more air filter box to get in the way!
^^yeah i know, i was ganna wait till i did that but since my car got egged i dont have the cash for that...
and yippie on a add to the how too [thumb]
Wait, you have to take the wheel well cover out to install these clears??
just the front close to the skirt under the engine, maybe 2 clips at most and then its visible
