Some clown was trying to remove the left side lense to connect the trailer connection at UHaul and somehow cracked the outside left lense on the edge. Yes they ARE going to replace it, as I have the documents thru their insurance that says they are gonna do that. I just wonder if they will give me enough money to purchase one. My next trip is down to the dealer to inquire about the cost of one of these beasts and also to see what the cost of installing the wiring harness for the trailer hookup will be, and if they can even do it.[bootyshak
No, what they are saying is that to remove the housings from the body you first have to unscrew the wing nuts, but don't drop them as its a pain in the rear to get them back again. The bulbs need to be disconnected from the wiring harness in order to remove the housings from the body.

The fasteners that attach the lamps to the body are secured behind the rear cargo trim and or lift gate trim on the hatch.
